Could you please introduce yourself?
I’m Fellicia Giovanni, 27, from Indonesia. I did my first degree at Staffordshire University in China, majoring in International Business Management and after graduation, I joined my family's business back at home. At the same time, I built my startup, which is a café specialized in plant-based Food & Beverage. Besides my professional life, I also love to engage in social activities and volunteer work, especially in humanitarian relief activities.
What do you think of RBS and RUAS as a university?
Personally, I think RBS and RUAS teaching style is very unique. It provides me with a good balance of theoretical and practical knowledge.
What has the experience been like so far?
So far the experience has been wonderful. Although studying and working in a multicultural environment is not unprecedented to me but, interestingly, I can now meet people who are coming from different professionals backgrounds.
What is special about your programme?
It’s full of adventure. I always feel like MCE is the right programme for me. Thankfully, I made the right decision and I feel so content to be enrolled in this programme. Throughout the programme, I learned extensive and in-depth practical knowledge with different experiences that I’ve never learned before. During the study, there were some challenges, but I believe this is the process we all need to undergo in order to develop ourselves because otherwise, we will never grow.
Do you like Rotterdam?
Yes, I like Rotterdam. Personally, I consider it a small city but the good thing about Rotterdam is that everything is close by. I think it is very convenient that I can bike effortlessly from home to the university and the city as well. The thing that I like most about this city is that it is very peaceful and full of greenery views. It's just the perfect place to study and to live!
How does access to companies work within the program?
Throughout the programme, we had an opportunity to work for companies that are part of subject’s syllabus. So far we have been assigned to work with two different companies for our assignments and we also had a chance to visit one company.
