Student Participation

At Rotterdam School of Management, Erasmus University, there is lots of opportunity for student participation. The above diagram shows you our participatory bodies and their main purposes.

Master Programme Committees

The Programme Committee (PC) is a body that consisits of students and instructors of a respective master programme (for IM/CEMS and MiM) or group of programmes (all the other MScs). The main task of the Programme Committee at RSM is to give advice to the Dean of Education on enhancing and assuring the quality of the programme – this can be pretty much anything, such as the content of the programme, learning objectives, assessment, workload, teaching quality, admission and selection, course manuals, etc. The other major task is to provide advice on some parts and approval of other parts of changes in the teaching and examination regulations, as specified in the act on higher education and research (WHW).

For the MSc Programme Committee that represents a group of 10 MSc programmes, they usually discuss overarching issues that apply more or less to all MSc programmes represented. For matters pertaining individual courses, individual instructors, or peculiarities of a single MSc programme, they are usually discussed in the respective Programme Advisory Committee (PAC) that is normally organized by the academic director of the respective programme.

Every year the Programme Committee is formed before their first meeting around 25 Septmeber and the Programme Advisory Committee is normally formed after September. If you wish to become member of your Programme Committee or Programme Advisory Committee, please contact the secretary of the relevant PC below as soon as possible and/or contact your Academic Director during the programme kick-off.
