The TIAS School for Business and Society, which is affiliated with Tilburg University and Eindhoven University of Technology, has been given top place by students for its full-time Master of Science in Business Administration (MScBA) course in the Best Studies research by Elsevier.

The research is based on the results of the National Student Questionnaire. According to the study, students highly evaluate the professors of the masters, the examination process and overall quality of the programmes.

Senior Career Consultant, Jelda Veninga, said that this result was not a complete surprise because of the feedback the school gets at the end of each academic year. “The MScBA programme offers a high level of personal attention, high quality in services and creates a warm atmosphere which is supportive for students’ professional and personal development. At TIAS we really care about our students - we know you by name; you are certainly not a number.”

The Business School provides a high level of personal attention to future career prospects of the students. “We offer a special Personal Leadership and Career Development program, where students receive individual career coaching and workshops to discover their talents, improving their skills and make a career plan to help them discover the career that suits them best,” says Veninga.

She also stated TIAS gives various support to students that includes helping them to find a job, practicing job interviews, checking CV’s and enhancing the network of career possibilities throughout the academic year.

Leanne Westerink, program manager of MScBA Programs, states that the top academic and professional lecturers, the national diversity in the selection process of motivated students and the careful guide given to study groups are part of the core competitive advantage that best explains this high ranking.

I would recommend Together Abroad to anyone who needs professional help with transitioning to a new career.

Linda is a big mind. She thinks about things that the rest normally overlook. The insight she has about the dutch job market can only be achieved through years of experience and persistence.

Her business savvy is complemented by her mastery of understanding the client's needs and requirements. For my career I could say, she was the “Mary Poppins”, who guided me through thick and thin and helped me to land a career in the Netherlands

If you are going to enlist the services of a "Career Coach" look no further. The only person you want in your corner is Linda van Orsouw. As an expat, you absolutely want to work with a highly skilled and knowledgeable professional who knows their way around the Dutch career/employment/job market. Linda assisted me in writing and positioning my CV, helped me organize and prioritize my list of opportunities, coached me through mock interviews and was there when I got offered a senior position only 2 months later. When asked I will only refer to Linda and "Togetherabroad".
