Prof. Marc Vermeulen (born 1958) is the academic director of the Strategy, Innovation and Governance course for top managers in the public domain. He is also responsible for a number of programmes for managers in education. At TIAS he teaches about both strategic developments in the public domain and the methods and techniques for analysing and predicting these developments.
He is professor of educational sociology at both Tilburg University and Open Universiteit Netherlands. He thereby specialises in applied research relating to the education system and its relationship with adjacent social and economic systems. One important area of application is the labour market within the education sector itself (incl. shortage of teachers, teacher training, HRM).
His field of work is now extending to other public domains (incl. healthcare, public housing, public administration). He specialises in strategic analyses and forecasts and regularly works as an adviser for major (educational) institutions and for the government in the Netherlands. He also regularly works abroad in this field. Hence his work has included involvement as a scientific adviser in the large scale international forecasting exercise for education (Schooling for Tomorrow) carried out by OECD, and he recently advised the South African Department of Performance Monitoring & Evaluation.
In addition to his primary role at TIAS he also works as a freelance consultant and supervisor in the public domain. He is or has been involved in complex advice processes in areas including
• Macro effectiveness of the education system;
• Quality of higher education;
• Professionalism of teachers
• Education time

Until the end of 2012 he was director of IVA Beleidsonderzoek en Advies, a research institution associated with Tilburg University which specialises in applied research into complex policy problems and related issues in areas including employment, education, safety, care and welfare, culture and social security.
He is chairman of the Supervisory Council of Wellantcollege (green (preparatory) secondary vocational education), a member of the Supervisory Board of Zayaz (housing corporation in Den Bosch) and a member of the Supervisory Council of Signum (primary education in Den Bosch and environs).
