LIVE THE JAB EXPERIENCE
THE JAB´S VOICE
Barbara Varma - JAB Participant
“When I took part in the JAB I absolutely loved the experience, because it gave me the chance to share my ideas about how higher education can be used as a force for a better future with other students and the IEU faculty. The JAB gave me the opportunity to discover what awaited me beyond high school, and for that I am still very grateful. I am currently taking a gap year as an intern at the UWC School in Thailand, where I help and support the next generation of scholars. Coming autumn, I will start at Harvard University to study Government.“
Lukáš Macner - JAB Participant
“You get to know what IEU is about and get great value from the experience. Through the JAB, I got to talk to many professors, directors of programs and deans which showed me what IEU is really about. They offered me a glimpse into the goals of the university and its constant drive to innovate. I liked that focus and in fact met some of my professors during the JAB. Most importantly, IEU’s entrepreneurship program and its rankings really fascinated me during the JAB and therefore I have decided to attend the university. From a cost benefit analysis, it was also a clear choice. You get to come to Europe’s top ranked university for a fraction of the price.”
Sasankh Munukutla - JAB Participant
“I deeply relished reflecting critically about the future of higher education with my fellow JAB members from around the world, learning from the fascinating motley of perspectives in our diverse group and ultimately working actively to formulate policies to shape an ideal university. We devised and presented policies to the Board of Directors for consideration, including personalizing learning based on unique learning styles, the importance of learning how to learn, revamping the admission process and integrating practical facets of education like entrepreneurship in pedagogy. As a proponent of education reform, I found JAB to be a meaningful avenue to channel my efforts while having a wonderful time in the vibrant IE campuses with excellent food and gregarious people!”
