Management of Projects

beheer, advies, training, onderzoek


Veel van de 16 sponsor bedrijven ondersteunen de leerstoel al jaren. Naast de jonge medewerkers die op cursus gaan, bieden de bedrijven ook vaak de gelegenheid voor afstudeeropdrachten. In de afgelopen jaren heb ik 187 studenten bij hun afstuderen begeleid (en de aantallen stijgen nog steeds). Daarmee doen we ook kennis op van die bedrijven en komen we tot verbeteringen voor project management in zijn geheel.

Een overzicht van de studenten en hun afstudeerscripties staat hieronder weergegeven om een indruk te geven van het type onderzoek dat uitgevoerd wordt.
