Saloni Gulati, one of our IBA students in Logistics and international trade, moved to another city, Den Haag, at the beginning of the pandemic. Den Haag is famous for its beautiful beach, royal buildings, 30 well-maintained theatres and more than 40 museums. Summer is exquisite in this city and Saloni spends her days exploring these beautiful spots whenever she needs a break from working on her thesis. At the weekends, she also does a little bit of part-time work for a change of scene. Moving to the pretty city of Den Haag was one of the best decisions she has taken this year, Saloni explained.
