Booklist and ordering

For the first year of Creative Business, we do not have a fixed book list. At the beginning of each module, the lecturers discuss in the group which books are recommended for that module. You can then purchase this book or borrow it from the library. You can order these books from the Studystore. In addition, at the start of the academic year you will take a language proficiency test. Based on this test, we may advise you to take out a subscription to Hogeschooltaal, an online language skills programme. You will find information about this on the book list.

Student Council Creative Business

StuCo CB

Hey, there! We are the Student Council of Creative Business. The bridge between the CB study and the students. StuCo CB is an organization that thrives on making your study experience as valuable and enjoyable as possible. Our four departments (Marketing, Event, Design, and Development) organize and promote exciting events suitable for every CB student!

Are you keen to meet other students, expand your skills or show off your creativity? The Event Department eagerly plans, manages and arranges fun and creative events for you. And if you don’t know which of these events would suit you best, don’t worry, our online event matcher is here for you. It will match your interest and hobbies with the most fitting StuCo CB activity. These events are being promoted and advertised on our social media channels (Instagram, Facebook, LinkedIn and YouTube), thanks to our Marketing Department. Our Design Department captures the look and feel of every cheerful and fun event by creating unique visual content. Last but not least, for making each event better and the study itself a greater and more developed place for CB students, the Development Department focuses on helping CB students with study/ university-related problems.

If you want to meet the whole team of passionate and outgoing students, or you want to get a sneak peek of our events, check out our social media channels and join the creative adventure with us, your StuCo CB. However, if you want to be part of our creative family, stay tuned for our next recruitment process coming in February!
