"Shaping the Future" Event, 24 April 2015

With the end of our 30th anniversary year rapidly approaching and a resolution to maintain the intrepid character and innovative spirit of the School that has enabled its success to this day, we are excited to start shaping its future. As a School of Business and Economics we can only do this together with the business community and public sector. 

Would you like to benefit from this unique opportunity to interactively get a flavour of what it takes for you and your organization to successfully engage in transformation, innovation and co-creation? Join us for this celebration event on April 24.

Our keynote speakers

Prof. dr. Hein Schreuder, until 2012 Executive Vice-President Corporate Strategy & Acquisitions at DSM, will share his insights on what strategic learning requires from an organization based on his experiences with DSM’s evolutionary transformation from a coal mining to a life sciences company. His keynote will be based on his recently published book called ‘From Coal to Biotech, The Transformation of DSM with Business School Support’.

Prof dr. Gaby Odekerken-Schröder, professor of Customer Centric Service Science and Scientific Director of the Service Science Factory at Maastricht University School of Business and Economics, will engage you in the transformative power of services. What does it require from your organization to not lose sight of what your customers really want in the complexity and turbulence of today’s environment? Her insights will be based on the story of 5 years of Service Science Factory.
