"First of all, I would say if you want a degree which gives you a wide range of options on the commercial as well as on the corporate market. This is then most definitely the place for you. I feel that after completing this programme  you will know the educational concepts, skills and values necessary to successfully enter the employment market in facility management and related professions. As an honour student, I was eligible to become a “Student Assistant”: this means you get to work on projects internally and externally that aren’t part of your normal curriculum.  Besides that I am also the marketing manager and part of the Board of a student organization called SIFE. SIFE is a globally recognized student organisation that brings together a diverse network of university students, academic professionals and industry leaders around the shared mission of creating a better, more sustainable world through the positive power of business."
