MBA Reunion "Radical innovation for the age of disruption"


The MBA New Year’s Event, for all MBA alumni and students, takes place on 19 January 2017 at Willem II Stadium.

Details and Program

Can you keep up with our new disruptive world?
Innovations and changes are rapidly occurring. Take the car industry as example. In 2013 self-driving cars were something you only saw in sci-fi movies. Today, these cars are driving in several big cities around the globe, quickly becoming the new norm.
Companies have to change rapidly in order to meet the consumers’ needs. Those who wait and are afraid of change, will not make it in this disruptive new world.
Come to the MBA New Year’s Event and be inspired by Rik Vera (CEO Nexxworks). Rik will give you more insights into today’s world, and trigger you to consider how you can thrive in the fast pace of disruption. His company, Nexxworks, is an authority on this subject, working for clients like, Rabobank and Google.
