My wife is Dutch and wanted to be close to her family. I was in Holland long ago traveling around and loved it, so agreed to move here. And am glad I did!
Holland is really central to the rest of Europe. Many great cities are close by; Paris, Brussels, Berlin, Copenhagen, and of course Amsterdam. This is a great advantage if you like to travel. Living in Holland is also easy - transport is good and cheap, recreation is close and affordable.
Students who like to learn by doing should enroll at Inholland. It is a practice-based school where you learn how to apply theory, not just write about it. The International Communication Management course is special because there are all different nationalities studying together. This makes for a great atmosphere.
I have a rather diverse background: Studies in Economics, International Affairs, Literature Science and my PhD is in knowledge management. In the USA I was an entrepreneur. When I moved to in Holland I first had my own business, but after several years started teaching at Inholland. I am now a senior lecturer in international communication management as well as associate professor at the Centre for Research in Intellectual Capital.
