University of Tilburg

Starting my 5th year coming to Tilburg University

Yesterday was the kick-off of the new intake of the Master of International Management at Tilburg University. Vivacious, smart, and mature students. Today I taught them the first time, and it was great fun. There is a lot of construction happening on the Tilburg University campus. It’s shaping a lovely learning and teaching environment. Frequently arriving on new schools, I know how tedious the first few hours of setting up logistics can be. But here, no matter what: consider it done. And it will be done. Tilburg is sometimes seen as an “underdog city” - a former wool and textile capital which had to reinvent itself. And it did reinvent itself without considering its limits but building on its possibilities. It is my 5th year coming here, and I enjoy every bit of it.
