Klaas Knot, President of the Dutch Central Bank was our guest last week. He is both professor and graduate of FEB and gave an interactive lecture for students. Afterwards he spectacularly opened the exhibition about Wim Duisenberg in the FEB building.
Klaas Knot is still closely connected to FEB, and looked back on his Groningen education: "It's safe to say that without my Groningen degree I would never have ended up in the jobs I have. And I still use the knowledge I aquired on a daily basis. Combining economic theory with translation into policy has always been "Groningen's" strength."
In 2010, the renewed Faculty Building was officially renamed to Duisenberg Building, to honour FEB's famous alumnus Wim Duisenberg. The exposition in the staircase of the building represents his life and career. Like Klaas Knot now, Duisenberg was also president of DNB.
