Wittenborg IBA Alumni Also Among New MSc Students

A new group of MSc Students started on their journey towards a Master degree at Wittenborg this week, kicking off with three days of orientation activities before starting with their classes on Monday. The new students are from Russia, India, Nigeria, the Netherlands, Spain, China, Germany, the Ukraine, Iran, Albania and Vietnam.

The most popular Master of Science programme this year is the MSc in Sport Business Management – almost 40% of all students will study that. The rest of the students are split over the other programmes – MSc in International Tourism Management, the MSc in International Hospitality Management and the MSc in International Event Management. Many EU students, who are allowed to follow a part-time Master degree, said they appreciate the fact that this option is available at Wittenborg.

“Aside from studying I am also a junior lecture at Breda University of Applied Sciences,” said Dutch student Tim Geelen who will do an MSc in International Hospitality Management. “Luckily I am a good planner and am able to balance work, study and my personal life.”

Wittenborg’s MSc programme is offered jointly with its long-term education partner, the University of Brighton in the UK. Some of them are already familiar with the education system at Wittenborg as IBA alumni.

Wittenborg’s Student Registrar, Santosh Aryal, said he was happy to see Wittenborg alumni who graduated this summer start with the MSc programme. “Wittenborg’s flexible entry date system allows for this.” The two alumni are Gertnisa Ristani from Albania and Jesse Ighalo from Nigeria.
