Study association Stress


Stress is the association that represents students of International Business Administration, Industrial Engineering and Management, and Business and Information Technology at the University of Twente. Stress’ mission is as follows:

“The mission of the Association is to stimulate the academic and personal development of members by offering its members the opportunity to expand, complement and practice the studies Business Administration (BA), Industrial Engineering and Management (IEM), Business & IT (BIT) and International Business Administration (IBA).”
