School of Business and Economics

Below you see an overview of the students currently representing DOPE at the School of Business and Economics.

This year, DOPE will again be represented in the SBE faculty council election. We, the eight candidates, will thus be representing the interests of our fellow students of the SBE! Firstly, we are aiming to enhance the overall educational quality at the SBE. Currently, students encounter various educational problems, with a frequently mentioned one concerning the quality of the tutors. The problems students encounter with the tutors can often be avoided if the screening process of the tutors would have been adjusted to not only take the grades of the tutor into account, but also the actual knowledge of the courses he or she will be teaching.

Secondly, we want to focus on the promotion of social integration amongst students. With the COVID-19 pandemic still playing a big role in our lives, the lack of social interaction is taking a toll on students. We plan to organize various activities such as sports days and workshops to give students the opportunity to meet peers and widen their social network. Thirdly, we want to provide a practical guide for first year’s students, which will contain some general information about the university, as well as some tips and tricks from students. This guide will decrease the gap between high school and university and will ensure a smoother transition for new students!

Fourthly, we strive to improve the efficiency of study places within our faculty. To achieve this, we plan to extensively promote the reservation system of tutorial rooms at SBE, something a lot of students are not familiar with. This will enable students to have a broader choice of studying environments and will increase the effectiveness of the campus. Moreover, we are also planning to reorganize today's current spatial planning at SBE to use the available room more effectively.

Finally, we aim to decrease the cost for the students of the SBE. This can firstly be done by lowering the cafeteria costs, which will allow for more students to socialize in the cafeteria whilst enjoying affordable meals with their peers. Secondly, we would also like to change the way students are obligated to buy online platforms to obtain bonus points for certain courses since these platforms are often expensive and only used for one course.

With the above-stated points we aim to represent every single student and contribute to a better study and social environment at the SBE!
