"Well yes, I can’t deny that this has been one of the most amazing experiences in my life. For us as committee members it started with the destination. The world that opened up and offered so many opportunities and possibilities. Thereafter we had to obtain excellent students who were smart (and fun) enough to join us on our adventure. Then, acquisition. In retrospect, I enjoined this period quite much and learned a lot from it. As the treasurer I had to make sure we would stay within budget and still be able to experience the new culture. And the journey, well a shooting star that passed way too fast."
Florina de Jong, master student Supply Chain Management (Treasurer TIME 2014 | VAE & Qatar)
"For me TIME was the perfect supplement to my academic career. In my opinion TIME offers you exactly what scientific education lacks. You get practical experience, you perform scientific research, expand your network and that all together with a foreign experience. Besides that you experience yourself how it is like to talk on a business level with professionals, to work in a team 24/7 on such a big project, plus you improve your English so much. An experience I will benefit from my entire life."
Wouter Bode, master student Economy Psychology (Participant TIME 2014 | VAE & Qatar)
