An association of a group of students.
The initiative is designed and led by students.
The initiative pursues a common goal.
There are regular meetings for interaction between members.
Membership is open and accessible to every student.
The primary goal of all initiatives is to actively shape university life.
There are many different subject areas that student initiatives can pursue. At the CBS International Business School, the following areas are currently covered:
Social commitment and sustainability
Personal and professional development
You will meet fellow students from different years and study programmes and can make valuable contacts with students who have the same interests and passions as you.
During your studies, you can already bring the knowledge you have gained from the lectures into the initiative. Because you will be planning events or actions in almost all initiatives, you will gain valuable experience in the area of project planning and implementation.
Teamwork is an essential part of a student initiative, as all members need to find the right role and tasks to take on in the long term.
The fact that you meet students from different disciplines can give you a whole new stimulus. You will better understand the interaction between the different departments of a company and the interrelationships between the different sectors.
You gain confidence in presenting your own qualifications and knowledge from the right perspective. Especially on your CV, membership in a student initiative is a good asset.
