The faculty board is responsible for the administration and management of the faculty to ensure the quality of education and research. The board is supported in decision-making by various committees and participation bodies.

Faculty Joint Assembly

The Faculty Joint Assembly (FJA) forms co-determination within the faculty. In the FJA, members of the Faculty Representative Council (FRC) and members of the Faculty Student Council (FSR) meet with the Faculty Board. The FRC is the co-determination body for the staff of Nijmegen School of Management and, as such, part of the University Works Council. The FSR represents students' interests; the voice of staff and students is therefore heard in the FJA.

Faculty Student Council

The Faculty Student Council (FSR) promotes the interests of students within the faculty. The FSR deals with issues such as examination timetables, library opening hours and examination regulations. Together with the Programme Committee and the Student Assessor, the FSR is responsible for student representation. The FSR consists of:

FSR 2023-2024

  • Emma-Sophie Ekelmans (chairman)
  • Stijn van Nispen (vice-chairman)
  • Sien Doreleijers (secretary)
  • Lars Haarlemmer
  • Laurie Anedda 
  • Joris Ganzeboom

Student assessor

The student assessor is part of the faculty board and ensures that in meetings the student perspective is included in decision-making. The assessor also maintains close contact with the FSR and OLC and liaises at central level with assessors from other faculties.

International Advisory Board

Our International Advisory Board is made up of senior people from academia, organisations and governments whose close connections provide our faculty with the external perspectives needed to influence our research, education and engagement.

The members of the International Advisory Board play a vital role in the faculty's strategic direction, offering independent guidance on key issues that face our faculty, our relationships and our development. The members' particular areas of expertise enables the faculty to provide sustainable responses to global issues affecting organisations and societies and ensure that our students are prepared for the future.

Programme Committees and Examination boards

All programmes have an education committee (OLC) and an examination boards. The OLCs deal with the content and quality of education. Its main task is to evaluate education and give advice on the annual adoption of the Education and Examination regulations (EER). Both students and staff are members of the education committee. The examination boards ensures the quality of examinations and consists of a number of faculty employees. The EER is the guideline for the work of the examination committee.
