Students are important players in the community of Rotterdam School of Management, Erasmus University (RSM). Not only in terms of academic achievements and impact in the business world, but also as representatives and advisors to further improve RSM’s education and research activities and RSM’s role in society. Five students have joined the RSM Faculty Council recently, to do exactly that.

The new student representatives are Mathilde de Jonge (MSc Marketing Management), Keisha Mathews (BSc International Business Administration), Tristan Davanzo (MSc Finance & Investments), Younes Assou (MSc Finance & Investments), and Malin Holm (BSc International Business Administration).

“Openness to students, decision-making and high-quality education are important matters. As part of the RSM Faculty Council, I can represent students’ opinions on these topics,” says De Jonge. Assou agrees. As vice-chairman of the RSM Faculty Council and a member of Erasmus University Council, he says: “I want to improve student well-being, and help with diversity policies at RSM.”
