Dear fellow BA and IBA students, year 1, 2, and 3,

The RSM SR is in steady contact with Programme Managements and your Professors from all cohort years. Today, on the 8th of April 2020, a meeting was held with Adri Meijdam, Executive Director of RSM, a few members from the RSM Programme Committee, and from the SR Board. On the behalf of all students, whether Dutch or International, whether BA or IBA, whether abroad or in the NL, this is the letter that the RSM Student Representation addressed and sent in response to RSM’s (EUR’s) reactions to the current circumstances. This letter is not meant to open another space for discussions and rumours but to increase transparency at RSM (EUR), to stand up for students and professors, and to provide our support to the faculty. In case of questions or concerns please email info@rsmsr.nl.

Stay healthy and stay happy! Your RSM SR.

As 3. Year Coordinator you oversee a team of 20 (I)BA Reps. It is special as you coordinate both IBA & BA plus the representation of exchange, internship, and minors. Big bonus – you can restructure your role as it is new! Your tasks split into 3 areas. Feedback management is the development of research methods and assessment of course analysis reports. Internal management relates to your team – recruit, train, and motivate your Reps! External management refers to your RSM network. Hold check-up meetings with Programme Managers, chat with International Office and Career Centre during exchange and internships, and build SR’s network of the RSM Minor Representation!

An analytical mindset and structured work approach are a must. Identify problems & solutions, know how to build a cohesive line of argumentation in-text, how to manage time and set priorities, and know your opportunities and limits! A high level of English(!) and Dutch (preferably) is needed. Most importantly, be kind and creative to work with your team.
Expect to boost your confidence and leadership skills, to adopt an effective mix of attention to detail and a bird’s-eye view, optimise your professionalism, and build your network!
If you are ready to take on a challenge, if you love working with people, and if you are curious, flexible, and ambitious, this is YOUR role. Interested? Shoot me a message! @liviaglsm or rsmsr.thirdyearcoordinator@gmail.com.

As the Marketing & Events Coordinator, you will be responsible for leading different committees to organize internal and also external events for SR, and also create awareness for the organization via various creative marketing techniques on social media and other platforms. The external events range from “Drinks with your Professor” to Professor awards, while internal events include the SR Trip and Member’s Day. This makes your job extremely important as you will be the front line in giving people a sense of belongingness.

Requirements for the job, range from good organizational skills to time management and the ability to lead, being creative, spontaneous and open-minded. It is very important that you are able to listen to your members and maybe even at some point make them push their own ideas and concepts. I have personally found this to be the best way to go.

Long story short, if you are looking for an exciting and creative year, in which you can improve your interpersonal and organizational skills and maybe even make new friends, then apply to be a Marketing & Events Coordinator

Of course, if you have any further questions or if you just need someone to talk to, you can always contact me on @alexvanrompuy

Looking forward to hearing from you!

History

In 1985, a group of Dutch students raised a student-organization to improve the quality of the Dutch Bachelor study Business Administration (Bedrijfskunde). This organization, called “De Studentenvertegenwoording (SV)” to created a concentrated and “student-led”  union within the university body.

The core responsibility in the beginning years was simple. Students from the Business Administration study could approach the SV with all their study-related problems. Thereafter, the SV tried to solve these problems by talking with the associated departments within the Rotterdam School of Management.

After a few years, which were quite successful for the SV, a structure was created. For each course within the Bachelor’s, two representatives were appointed. These representatives were the contact people for students when they would have any problems with their course during their academic year. The course, literature, professors, exams and Blackboard (at a later stage) were discussed with the professors by these representatives.

During these developments within the SV, the International Business Administration students created their own SV, called the Student Representation (SR). This student organization had the same core responsibility as the Dutch equivalent, namely: giving a voice to their students and trying to improve the quality of their study within the Rotterdam School of Management.

In 2008, The SV and SR had a meeting and concluded within that they could create an even stronger body for their students if they would merge. After several meetings with each other and with the university body, the Student Representation was created “again”. This organization from now on would be “the” student organization, acting as an intermediary between students on one side and the RSM staff on the other side.

SR has become a well-respected organization within the Rotterdam School of Management. Students can hand in their feedback for their courses via Social Media, the website and of course via their student representatives. In 2011, the SR added a new section of representation: Program Advisory. Students can hand in their feedback regarding more “general” academic procedures, including examination, general studies, and the 7th trimester. The purpose of Program Advisory is to imporve the program as a whole. The SR changed a lot of course-related topics and improved the quality of the university. In 2015, SR further expanded to represent the minors of the Rotterdam School of Management. SR has also continuously worked on improving its own processes, such as its feedback gathering mechanisms.

In order to constantly improve the quality of the education of RSM, we need the feedback of as many students as possible, we need you to SPEAK YOUR MIND!
