This mean she integrates competencies and contents related to multiple value creation and sustainable development into our programs, partly by facilitating our faculty and partly by designing and delivering related courses herself. In addition, she is Academic Director of the TIAS Pre-Master program.

With a Master’s degree in International Relations (with a specialization in the position of developing countries), Mirjam initially worked in the field of microfinance, fair trade and responsible investing and gradually shifted towards sustainable development and corporate social responsibility (CSR) - and specifically training and education on these issues. She specialized in ‘Higher Education for Sustainable Development’ and worked with several Dutch universities of applied sciences.
