 What are we looking for in an Ambassador?

  • You must be an enrolled RSM Master student on September 1st, 2019.
  • You are available for the entire academic year 2019-2020.
  • You are enthusiastic and have good social skills.
  • You are willing to communicate with prospective students via Whatsapp and our digital peer-to-peer platform, Unibuddy. This means you may have to spend approximately 15 min a day on Unibuddy, even during a busy period. We will display your picture on the Unibuddy page (please note: your email address will be shared with applicants who already received an “offer of admission”).
  • You are not shy in approaching prospective students to offer them information at the open days.
  • You are responsible and reliable when you carry out your tasks.
  • You have no problem speaking to large groups of people and holding presentations.
  • You are willing to respond to short-notice requests about campus tours and school visits.
  • You respond quickly to e-mails and are well-organized.
  • You are willing to prioritize Ambassador work over other extracurricular activities/side-jobs that you undertake.
  • Since we need to arrange a contract for you, you must be in the possession of a Burgerservicenummer (BSN) for the entire year 2019-2020 (which means registering your address with the municipality) and you must acquire a Dutch basic health insurance which is required by Dutch law if you have a working contract. You have to make the arrangements for the insurance yourself.

Note: If you are joining the MSc International Management-CEMS programme, you can still apply for this position. For example if your exchange is in the fall, you can apply for the ambassador position for the spring semester.
