Education is not preparation for life. Education is life itself – John Dewey (American philosopher, psychologist and educator)

Denise Simons-Dix joined the Amsterdam School of International Business in 2012 in order to give full focus on the practical experience of students in their final year. Her own experience in living abroad, working in finance and commerce, and her broad field of interests, made her an enthusiastic contact person for students, lecturers and the business field.

In modern society the world has become your back yard and Mrs Simons-Dix is proud to see how today's AMSIB students grasp great opportunities abroad, become young professionals, and are successful in bridging intercultural differences privately and in business. She is pleased to be part of the Amsterdam School of International Business, and to positively contribute toward putting AMSIB on the world map.
