Message from the Dean

Integrity is paramount

Decaan prof. dr. Annetje Ottow
Professor Annetje Ottow

The faculty comprises three disciplines: law, economics, and governance. This is a unique combination in the Netherlands, allowing for a multidisciplinary approach and broad collaboration. The faculty is characterised by a multidisciplinary approach to societal issues, both in teaching and research. In addition to the teaching activities aimed at the specific discipline, teaching also consists of learning about other fields of expertise. Within the Law and Economics and the European Governance master’s degree programmes, the disciplines have already become fully intertwined. Entrepreneurship teaching takes up a special position too. Via the Center for Entre[A1] preneurship, students can become acquainted with the various aspects of entrepreneurship.

The colleges within the faculty form a special focus in the teaching activities. These colleges have been set up to accommodate excellent students within the disciplines of law and governance. The college model will be expanded further and also become available to students of economics.

In our research, scientists show that they wish to serve society through their independent view of all that is happening in our world. The interaction between science and practice is of vital importance, while academic integrity is paramount under all circumstances.
