ACE Society

  • The AMSIB Culture and Excellence (ACE) society is the student society of the International Business course of the Amsterdam School of International Business (AMSIB).
  • Our goals are to create a community, increase student engagement and to improve the mental health of students. Throughout the academic year we plan on engaging students on our social media accounts with content relating to study tips, comedy, culture course information and much more.
  • We also plan to support students with advice when it comes to their various needs, we do not promise to always have solutions, but we do promise to always listen.
  • In the past academic years, we also organised events to bring students together, such as meet and greets, movie nights, bowling nights, board game night, BBQ’S, Kings day parties and etc. While we currently are unsure of what the future will bring, we will strive to at least have small get togethers for students to get to know each other. Whether it be online or face to face.
  • We very much look forward to meeting all the new students and members and we wish you a very happy year studying.
  • Or check out our Facebook page and Instagram.
  • If you ever want to send us an email, please feel free to email
