I am a student at EUR for more than a year now. I am studying International Management/CEMS and I can say that I am more than pleased with my choice. Erasmus provides a perfect campus with the appropriate studying, relaxing and eating facilities. All you may need for successfully completing your studies. Teaching is very advanced, however, some course lectures could have had fewer participants in order for the students to be more engaged. Considering the university rankings that are consistently rising, it is a great investment for your professional career.
In my view, the F&I programme was a well organized and interesting programme. Although the classes of lectures were quite big, professors gave more personal help during workshops and tutorials. The content of the programme covered all essential finance knowledge and gave a good understanding of important financial and economic concepts. Furthermore, the big portion of international students made it an interesting environment to study. I would definitely recommend this programme to my fellow students.
I am currently studying IBEB at this school and I am definitely very happy with the university. NOt only is the academic programme great (COuld be a bit too theoretical at times) but the variety of extra curricular activities you can choose from and the variety of platforms that the university provides certainly takes my vote. Plus the uni environment and atmosphere is fantastic!
I am doing IBEB program at Erasmus University. It is a nice university with friendly atmosphere. However, studying is very difficult in terms of passing subjects. I as a student spend my majority of time in library and preparing for exams. The good thing is that there are a lot of people from all over the world and it is easy to know new ones and also make friendships.
In overall, I like the university, the amout of extra curricular activities and events it offers, also the study facilities are super modern and well thought. However, there are always some things to impove. In my opinion, there should be more exam-relevant information available for several difficult courses, as sometimes it happened that you studied a lot, but failed because of some unexpected type of problems, which wasn’t covered neither at the tutorials, not at the lectures. This stresses you out very much. It would be nice if that part would be improved.
I am a third year student in Erasmus School of Economics and I have a positive opinion about it. I study International Economics and Business and I am getting the knowledge that I have expected to get from this program. The thing I liked the most is that high academic achievement can help to get a significant reduction of the tuition fee. I would recommend this program to a friend interested in economics, however, I would like to say that one has to put enough effort in order to succeed in this university.
It’s hard to pass, let alone good grade, in good programs (I am doing economics and business, IBEB, the freshmen passing rate was 60%). However, if you do manage to stay and also use the numerous opportunities this uni offers (student/study associations, societies, career days and business cycles), you get the feeling all the doors are open for you. Maybe its the university with ambitious students or the city with far-reaching plans and views, but the fact stays the same: you grow wings here.
There still are quite a few drawbacks, which need urgent improvements. Firstly, the study spaces are insufficient. They have opened Polak (basically a building for self-study), renovated the library, enlarged the Sanders Building. However, meanwhile they have disproportionately increased the intakes of most of the programs. It’s hard to find a study space, let alone a nice one with silence, light and comfort. Secondly, due to exponentially increasing capacities of the international programs like IBA, IBEB or IBCoM, the housing situation becomes a nightmare for the internationals. It’s scarce and totally overpriced. It’s usual to pay about 550 euros monthly for a room not too far away from uni. It’s just sad. The university is trying to solve this by building new living spaces, but it’s definitely not enough. Creating 220 new rooms in 3 years, while increasing the programs by about 1000 places meanwhile is not okay. Once again, disproportionate.
