At TIAS, Mirjam Minderman has the responsibility to ensure that our education reflects we are a ‘School for Business and Society’. 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 developing and providing education itself. 

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. She 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. Mirjam is active in various Dutch and international networks related to CSR and responsible management education.
