Hello everyone, my name is Daan Koomen and I will be the next Chairman of the IFP Board 2020-2021! I am 21 years old and this year I will complete my bachelor in Economics and Business Economics. With my university bachelor, I gained a lot of theoretical knowledge but I wanted to develop myself further on a professional level. That is the reason I decided to apply for the IFP board as it allows me to get in touch with Dutch international operating companies and to conduct research in a foreign country. Besides that, the social part of IFP is very appealing to me as I will cooperate with a great team.

I am very excited about the upcoming year and if you want to know more about International Financial Program, feel free to contact us!
Hi! My name is Célia Pronk and I will fulfill the role of External Relations and Treasurer in the IFP Board 2020-2021. Currently, I am in the last stage of my bachelor Economics and Business Economics. During my bachelors, I wanted to gain practical experience in the business environment on top of my theoretical knowledge. Last year I realized I wanted to postpone my masters and enjoy the student life in Groningen to the fullest. Combining the fun aspects with the professional opportunities IFP provides, I thought an IFP board year would be the perfect way to spend my year.

What interests me the most about the IFP project is that you conduct a valuable research for Dutch companies with a group of peers. On top of that, I heard great stories about the trip you work towards the entire year. Overall, providing a high-quality research as well as being able to have a challenging and exiting board year seems like the perfect combination to me.

IFP was the perfect way to become an active member of Risk and gain experience on a professional level.

Hello everybody! My name is Maaike van Dulst and I will be responsible for the function PR & Logistic of the International Financial Program this year. I am 21 years old and currently, I am a third year International Business student and a second year psychology student. During my IB bachelor, I learned a lot of theory but never saw it play out in real life. I was really curious to see how the theory would apply to the reality. IFP looked like the ideal project to gain real-life experience.

During my semester abroad in China, it was really fascinating to see how emerging economies grow so rapidly. I really love travelling and it looks like an amazing experience to choose and consequently visit a similar emerging country after a year of preparation. I am really excited for the upcoming year and hope you can all join us on this amazing project!
