"I Came to Study in Holland Because of a Movie"
For Wittenborg graduate Zuwang Chen it was love at first sight: He saw a romantic movie which was shot in the Netherlands and he knew he wanted to study here.
Chen, who is from China, graduated with a Bachelor degree (IBA) in Economics & Management from Wittenborg University of Applied Sciences this summer.
So, what was the movie? Turns out he saw a Korean movie called Daisy (Deiji) – an urban romantic drama by Hong Kong director Andrew Lau. It shows lots of Holland’s lush, green countryside as well as give a glimpse of what living in a Dutch city looks like.
Chen’s choice of Wittenborg was more grounded: “I chose Wittenborg because of its flexibility and it’s a nice place with kind people.” How did studying at Wittenborg change him? “It made my life more colourful!”
As for his plans for the future: “I would like to find a job, but at the same time I am working towards starting my own company in the fashion industry.”
