Top 3 best teachers

The teachers of the Master’s in Marketing have been named among the best teachers in the Netherlands by students in the category for large master's and research master’s programs. This is from Elsevier magazine’s ‘Best studies 2017’ publication and is based on students’ evaluations of their teachers in the National Student Survey. In this survey, they assessed their teachers on competence, commitment, accessibility, and guidance. Personal attention, availability outside of scheduled hours, and getting to know the students are characteristics of ‘good’ teachers, according to the study.

And in the 2018 National Student Survey, our students rated the program as the best in its field!

The start date of this program is September 1st.
