MSc Marketing alumni inspire students with their career stories

On 30 January, MSc Marketing hosted the annual 'Students meet alumni' event. We look back on a successful afternoon!

Nearly 50 students started the day with an interactive Personal Branding workshop by SBE’s career coaches: how to give a personal and powerful pitch.

Christiaan Franken, director of business development (health and wellness) at Philips and member of the MSc Marketing Advisory Board, gave the keynote speech. He inspired students to start the process of hunting for their first assignments. Christiaan also emphasized the leading position of the Marketing programme in the Netherlands and encouraged students to engage with the active network of VU Marketing alumni.

Three break-out sessions offered the opportunity to do just that: engage with alumni, ask for their advice and learn from their experience. The event concluded with informal drinks in the Basket.
