My name is Rik van Maanen and I am 25 years old. Although it feels like yesterday, I graduated approximately one and a half year ago. By doing that, I finished my Master in Accounting at Tilburg University.
Before I signed my diploma in the early summer of 2013, I tried to get most out of my time as a student. It all started in 2007, when I moved from the picturesque Renkum to the ‘big’ city of Tilburg. During my first years of the bachelor of Business Economics (Bedrijfseconomie) I really enjoyed the possibility of going out on any day of the week and decide the next morning whether or not you go to class. The absence of (real) obligations made student life really extraordinary for me.
