Professor of Economics Aart Bosman in university portrait gallery

08 December 2006

A painting of Emeritus Professor Aart Bosman has been included in the RUG portrait gallery. The painting, by J.M.C. Asselbergs, will hang in the Economics Faculty Room in the Academiegebouw.

The tradition of painting portraits began in 1618 with pictures of the first four chancellors of the RUG. Over the years, a varied collection of 243 portraits has been created. In 2000, when there was no more room to hang the portraits of professors in the Senate Room, the tradition was continued in each of the relevant faculty rooms.

Bosman, Emeritus Professor of Business Information Systems at the Faculty of Economics, is the pioneer and founder of the field of Business Information Systems in the Netherlands. He has numerous Dutch and international publications to his name. He supervised twenty PhD students, ten of whom are now professors in their own right.


His books are widely used in higher education and a prize has even been named after him – the Aart Bosman Prize for the best research in the field of IT. It is awarded every two years.
