"Groningen's strenght"

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."

Duisenberg Exhibition

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.
