'The MScBA program is ranked number 1 in The
Netherlands for the past 5 years and is ranked 24th
worldwide according to The Economist.

There’s a great interaction between the students and the
professors. They are available to us all the time
between the breaks, and sometimes after class we
even go for networking sessions with them.

What is really valuable, is that we are assigned a career coach
who is helping us with the first professional steps
after school. For me, TIAS in three words is: Fun,
hard work and definitely worth it.'
