About Sabine van de Beek

After completing her Bachelor’s degree in International Business, Sabine van de Beek first enrolled in a Master's in Philosophy, Science and Humanities at the Faculty of Philosophy, but after a year, she decided to combine this degree programme with a Research Master’s programme at the Faculty of Economics and Business. As part of her Master’s thesis, she is currently researching the effect of virtual reality experiences offered during breaks on the mental health of employees. She plans to expand on this research in a PhD project for which she has already been promised a position.

In parallel with her two Master’s degree programmes, Sabine served as a student member of the Board of Appeal for Examinations, and she works as a student assistant at the Department of Organizational Behaviour and Human Resource Management, and as a research assistant for Professor Jessica de Bloom. In addition to her strong academic performance and breadth, Sabine has also been active outside of academia, for example by helping to set up a fund-raising campaign for Ukraine within the Groningen Student Rowing Association Gyas.
