Given increasing globalisation, I wanted to attend a university with students from all over the world to create as international a network as possible. RSM fit my requirements perfectly. During my master at RSM I found out that 'academic learning' is more than studying theories. You are not just learning theories but rather building strong networks of knowledge you can use throughout your life. Besides the useful courses, I was part of a group of international students with different backgrounds which made it even more challenging doing the HRM master programme. Looking back on the years I spent at RSM I can say that I can call it a challenging and rewarding time. 

In my current job I deal with people at all levels. As a project manager I am responsible for national and international logistical projects. I regularly use my gained knowledge and skills in practice, however, this is sometimes difficult as the real world differs from theories. My experience is that a masters degree from RSM gives you a way of thinking and acting which is important in dealing with complex and dynamic global business environments. Eventually, the combination of learned theories, gained skills and working together with international students gave me the necessary tools to execute my current job successfully. My time at RSM was an essential experience for my future career!
