Data driven student experience

"We are honored to share our expertise at Nyenrode and be part of this historic institution," said Anna van den Breemer, Public Sector Lead at Microsoft Netherlands. "Our joint efforts will not only result in improving the student journey by making it more data-driven, but will also help to further strengthen the bond with alumni. Nyenrode is a small-scale university with an extremely personal approach to students - Microsoft helps align the data strategy with this approach. Recent developments around AI will further strengthen this. Together with the organization's ability to execute, this makes Nyenrode the ideal partner to work with in this area."

Becking said: "Together, we can ensure a state-of-the-art educational experience that enables students to reach their full potential. We are excited to collaborate more closely with Microsoft and look forward to shaping the future of business education together."
