On these pages you will find information concerning the Board of Examiners and the different representative advisory bodies: Degree Programme Committee and the University Council. The Faculty Council has got information in Dutch only. Several forms of the evaluation of education are also discussed.

The Student Interest Body (StIB) is the committee for students representatives from U.S.E. The goal of StIB is to represent all the students of the Utrecht University School of Economics and to make student representation more united, transparent and cohesive. It aims to provide ground for student representatives to discuss matters at hand, pick up joint projects and handle complaints more intensive.

StIB consists of the following students:

  • 3 students from the Bachelor OC
  • 3 students from the Master OC
  • 3 students from the Faculty Council
  • 1 student from the U.S.E. Board
  • 1 student from the BUS and GBU Board

StIB gathers every two or three weeks to discuss the latest education related issues. Feedback is crucial, so we want to encourage every student to come to StIB with feedback. So if you have a complaint, a remark, a compliment or a question, do not hesitate to contact us. Also look out for the StIB Awareness Days, where members will hand out free ‘Poffertjes’, waffles or ice-creams whilst you can talk to members individually.

For more information about StIB, for feedback or to become active as a student representative or any other matter, send an e-mail to stib@ecu92.nl, visit the StIB page at the ECU’92 website or walk into the ECU’92 room.

Utrecht University School of Economics (U.S.E.) constantly strives to improve its teaching. To do so, we have a quality control system using course evaluations and evaluations of the entire academic programme.

Your opinion on our education is important. The course coordinators take the evaluation outcomes into account, when making changes in their courses for the next year.

For the course evaluations, we ask you to fill in a digital evaluation in Caracal. At the last lecture, you will be asked to bring your device (laptop, tablet or smartphone) to fill in questions about the course. In case the course has a final exam you are invited (by mail) for another, small evaluation in which only the exam-related questions are asked.

The outcome of this evaluation and points of improvement are discussed in the education board and the Degree Programme Committee.

For the evaluation of the academic programme, we request each graduate to fill in an opinion poll, also in Caracal.

You will also have the opportunity to voice your opinion about the programme through opinion polls like the National Student Survey. Of this, the outcome and points of improvement are also discussed in the Education Board and the Degree Programme Committee.

The Utrecht University School of Economics (U.S.E.) has a one Degree Programme Committee (OC) for the academic programmes.
The OC safeguards the quality of its teaching, addresses any potential bottlenecks and gives advice, asked or unasked, concerning the development and execution of education policy.

For all questions and/or remarks concerning teaching you can contact the members of the OC by their email address: dpc.Master.use@uu.nl
