Fulya about her experience at the FEB

I would describe my experience as fast, pushing and fun.

Why Ghent? Why Belgium? One of the reasons is the high reputation of Ghent University. It is highly ranked for example in the Financial Times.

The strategic management class has had an impact on me because I learned what kind of challenges I can face within real business life because, for example, we had a business game. This was quite interactive, quite challenging and it was closer to real life.

The digital marketing course was quite interactive and quite real compared to theoretic courses. For example, we had a guest from Google, which was really interesting.

I really liked this place because as far as I know it is one of the places in Belgium that had a digital transformation. For example the smart tables.

The selling course, which was taught by an international professor, met and exceeded my expectations. He was more willing to encourage us, to ask questions, but not to question us.

I will not forget any of the friendships that I made here. I will also never forget the city center and the scene when the sun rises.
