Iolanda enjoys the social aspect of things
Iolanda Andreea Rusu (19) is a first year student rom Romania. “I knew that I wanted to study abroad but I wasn’t sure which country I should pick. After a lot of thinking and reviewing dozens of universities, I decided that Saxion was best for me. Everything about it made me excited to want to study.”
" I read everything I could find about moving and living in the Netherlands, and fell in love with it. I picked IHRM because I was always inclined to the social aspect of things and I knew I wanted to choose a career that was related to interacting with people. I was considering psychology, but Human Resources turned up to be my first choice because I could study about people, behavior, psychology, management and so much more. I am going extremely happy with my choice and I will never regret it. "
Don’t be afraid, it might look scary to begin this new chapter but I’m sure you’ll have a lot of fun!
"One of my favourite modules were the psychology classes, but another favorite of mine are the basic communication skills classes because I was able to develop my social skills as well as presentation skills and I feel like it helped me grow as a person. One course that was more challenging for me was business economics, but I don’t really think any class is hard, of course some of them are more challenging than others but they are totally manageable.
For some courses we have to do group reports, for example for the Project Management course. We have to create a project in which we solve a problem in the workplace. Our group chose the problem of discrimination and prejudice in the workplace, and we developed a business plan about an app that aims to solve this problem.”
