Team Leadership (TL) program is a new Executive Education course. Some of the teams of the program have been asked to share what they have learned. One of the most notable stories comes from the Group Procurement team at Delta Lloyd, from supervisor Thomas de Jonge and his colleagues Guido Boer and Richard Groot. The men hesitate to call their team situation special, but it is definitely just that. With ratings of 8.5 (engagement), 8.6 (enthusiasm) and 9.6 (leadership), they boast the highest scores for the Sustainability Engagement Survey within the organization. What makes them so successful?
Ruud Huirne has been appointed new core lecturer for the Global Food Economy module, part of the Modular MBA in Food & Innovation.

With his broad background, experience and vision, he brings a great deal that participants can learn from.” Huirne is director Food & Agri at Rabobank and is convinced that the Netherlands can play an important role in the global food economy.
As they indicated in previous years as well, the students of Nyenrode Business Universiteit are very satisfied with their degree programs. In the 2017 edition of the National Student Survey conducted by Studiekeuze123 annually, students rated Nyenrode far above the national average for universities in the Netherlands. The BSc in Business Administration started last year scored the highest with a 4.7 out of 5.

The university’s flagship programme will be located at De Vijf Keijzers, a complex situated on the iconic Emperors Canal (Keizersgracht).
When it comes to the business sector, digital transformation is not just a choice, but rather a necessity. That is what Dr. Ir. Wolter Lemstra reiterates, the core professor of Digital Strategy and Transformation – a course of the Modular Executive MBA in Business & IT. Lemstra: “At one point or another, every organization will have to face digital transformation. So the best approach is to be adequately prepared.”
