    Business, IT & Management

    Netherlands - Last active: 04/06/2014 - Tests: 2

    I am an ambitious student and I study Business IT & Management at Rotterdam University. The study suits me because I like to work with technology and I also like to consult with people outside the IT branch and think of the best way to apply the technology in their company. Besides building the bridge between the two different worlds I am good with developing database structures and I can work as a network engineer. I developed these two skills while attending Media Technology at "Grafisch Lyceum Rotterdam".
