Thijs ten Cate | IT & Marketing Officer

Hi everyone! My name is Thijs ten Cate, and I will be the IT & Marketing Officer of the EBF Board during the upcoming academic year! I am 20 years old, and I grew up in the beautiful village of Zuidlaren, only half an hour away from Groningen. After high school, I decided to study International Business here at the UG. Perhaps the best thing about this programme is that it allowed me to go on an amazing exchange to McGill University in Montreal, Canada! I came back this January, and, at the moment, I am still busy with finishing my thesis and the last courses of the IB programme.

My EBF career started in the first year of my studies, when I became a member of the EBF Marketing Committee. Because I loved being an EBF Active Member so much, I enjoyed working on the association’s promotional activities with other committees and the board, and because I wanted to get some practical experience before starting my masters, the next logical step for me was to apply for the function of IT & Marketing Officer of the EBF Board!

I am really looking forward to running the EBF with my fellow board members the upcoming year, and to making the EBF an even better study association for all the FEB’s students. I hope to see you all soon at the EBF Events!
