It is our pleasure and honor to congratulate Sanne Nijs (department of Management and organization) with winning the Award SBE DocenTalentprijs 2019. Every year, the Faculty Student Council initiates this Award. This is a challenging task, as the School of Business and Economics has many different programs and many good teachers that are committed to delivering high quality as well as an excellent student experience.

This experience moves beyond sharing knowledge and focusses on sparking interest and engagement with students. Our students are grateful for those teachers and this award is a tribute to those who stand out in delivering on both quality and experience. The various program committees who represent both students and staff were asked to nominate candidates and a jury consisting of program directors as well as student representatives evaluated the nominations.

For 2018 – 2019, the Educational Awards theme was ‘looking further’, and contributions to this theme were also expressed in the nominations. After careful consideration, the jury chose Sanne Nijs as the best lecturer of SBE 2019! As one of the new and younger teachers of the School she has made a great entrance and distinguished herself through her devotion and passion. Her multidisciplinary background of educational sciences, HRM, and Business economics provide her a solid basis for teaching. Her teaching methods, patience, kindness, willingness for students to perform to their best potential, and the fact that she incorporates real-life challenges in all her courses make her courses feel relevant to the real world and forward-looking, which is highly appreciated by both the expert jury members as well as the student judges.
