Since 2011, I have served as Education Coordinator Microeconomics at Tilburg University’s CentER Graduate School, being in charge of mentoring all Research Master and PhD students in Microeconomics and facilitating them in making academic (and some non-academic) decisions. This appointment will end after the summer.
Instead, I was asked to follow up on Sjak Smulders as Academic Director of the MSc. Economics program. In this function I will be responsible for the Master program, run by the Tilburg School of Economics and Management, which aims at educating talented bachelor students from economics and neighboring disciplines further and provide them with a targeted profile of expertise in one of six tracks, thereby preparing them for the highest positions in private and public organizations.
The succession of Sjak Smulders will proceed gradually over the academic year 2016-17.
