Currently, I am active in various associations and international organizations, both on-campus and off-campus, including Asset International Business and Management, and Rotaract Club Varna-Euxinograd in my home city.

My name is Monika Grzywacz, I’m 20 years old and I am proud to be part of the Student Party ECCO’s list of candidates for the 2022-2023 elections.

My name is Michelle Kossoi and I am proud to be part of ECCO’s list of candidates for the 2022-2023 Faculty Council.

Currently I am in my second year of International Business Administration which triggered my interest in Marketing and Management. Since I am an international student myself, who has lived in different countries, I know how it feels to get out of your comfort zone and know how challenging this might be for new students who have left their home for the first time. Being an Ukrainian who was raised in Germany, I have learned how to be comfortable around other cultures and perceive this as an asset of mine . Being exposed to an international environment has taught me the importance of communication and transmission of valuable information.


My name is Andrei Neagu and I am proud to be part of ECCO’s list of candidates for the 2022-2023 Faculty Council. Together with my fellow colleagues I want to represent the interests of TISEM students and offer them the help they need to improve their student life.


I am a 20 year-old student coming from Bucharest, Romania. Currently, I am a third-year International Business Administration student and next year I am going to follow a Master’s program at Tilburg University. Being an international student, during the last 2 years I have been continuously exposed to various cultures and I believe I have gotten to know several of them to the point that I feel I can represent TISEM students.
