Each study at the Radboud University has the possibility of participation by students. This means students can share their opinions and suggestions about the study of Economics & Business. For any problems or questions you might encounter you can always reach out to the ESV board members, members of the educational committee or the student assessor.

Educational Committee (opleidingscommissie)

The Educational Committee consists of several students (from different disciplines and study phases) who meet with the study’s teachers. The students provide suggestions and opinions to ensure the quality of provided bachelor programme is of the highest standard. Every meeting each course is evaluated and the committee looks at any changes that might be necessary to the Education and Examination Regulation(EER).

This year the Educational Committee consists of:

  • Emma Bandell
  • Annet Colenbrander
  • Jelle Huisman
  • Sophie van Lith (assessor from the ESV)
  • Koen Smeets
  • Ruben Visser

As educational committee we represent all economy students and give students a voice! The educational committee is the way for students to make their voice heard by teachers. If you encounter any problems with classes, schedules, examination you can contact us by mail at, visit our Facebook page or speak to us personally. Don’t hesitate to contact us because we need your input to ensure our study programme’s quality.

Faculty Student Council

Timetables, examination regulations, the Study & Resource Centre or the library: most students will have had a grievance about one of these subjects, or perhaps an idea about how things could be organized better (or just differently). But these are not the only issues that the Faculty Student Council (FSC) deals with. For example, the planned move of Nijmegen School of Management will feature regularly on the agenda in the forthcoming period, and the improved website is another hot item. This page provides a brief introduction to the FSC.

The Nijmegen School of Management FSC 2020-2021 consists of the following members:

The Faculty Student Council is made up of elected student representatives, and operates at faculty level in every faculty. Six students sit on the FSC, and they have a mandate to discuss and sometimes make decisions on faculty policy on behalf of all students in the faculty. The FSC is responsible for assessing the Dean’s plans (including those relating to education). The plans are assessed in the best interests of the students. The FSC then discusses these (and other) issues at monthly meetings of the Faculty University Council (FUC), which is made up of a representative of the Dean’s Office, lecturers and non-academic staff. Meetings of the Faculty University Council are open to all interested parties, so why not come along to a meeting? Get in touch for the times and dates, or stay up-to-date via social media.

If you have a grievance, a question or simply want to have your say in day-to-day faculty matters, send an e-mail to the FSC ( You should also keep an eye on the messages on Blackboard (community teaching messages), as several information and lunchtime meetings will be organized during the academic year, to which all students are invited. Or like our Facebook page. We cannot provide proper representation without input from students, so your remarks, opinions and advice are more than welcome!
