Professor Oscar Couwenberg was appointed Honorary Professor of Corporate Governance at the University of Groningen/Campus Fryslân. Couwenberg was previously the Dean of the Faculty of Spatial Sciences of the University of Groningen and is currently a member of the Executive Board of NHL Stenden University of Applied Sciences.
University of Groningen/Campus Fryslân Dean, Prof. Andrej Zwitter: ‘I am looking forward to collaborating with Prof. Couwenberg. His appointment will help to further strengthen the bond between the University of Groningen and NHL Stenden University of Applied Sciences. It will also contribute to finding new ways to collaborate within education.’
Currently, the UG/CF and NHL Stenden are collaborating on Master’s degree programmes and a number of researchers are connected to both knowledge institutions. The Centre for Internationalisation in Education is also a joint initiative. As honorary professor, Couwenberg will be involved in the development of new degree programmes, such as the Bachelor’s programme in Data Science & Society, among others, and he will give guest lectures to students.
The fact that Couwenberg is familiar with both knowledge institutions is of added value. ‘It is an honour to remain connected to the university in which my passion for Corporate Governance first arose. As a member of the Executive Board of NHL Stenden University of Applied Sciences, I am committed to creating a region that is bustling with knowledge development. I am looking forward to contributing to this as an honorary professor at Campus Fryslân,’ comments Couwenberg.
