Meet the Dean: video message from Prof. Ansgar Richter

With so many people curious to know more about him, dean Prof. Ansgar Richter has made a short informal video to introduce himself to the external community of Rotterdam School of Management, Erasmus University (RSM).

Since joining RSM in November 2019, Ansgar has already met many alumni and representatives of corporate relations and partner schools. But the wider RSM community is increasing steadily and it will take some time to meet everyone in person.

In this short video message, Ansgar Richter introduces himself by reflecting on why he joined RSM, describes the first few months in the job, outlines his plans for the future for RSM’s educational programmes and research, and extends a warm invitation to be part of the RSM journey in 2020 and beyond.
