The Nijmegen School of Management
enables students, institutions and companies, societal actors and governments to play their part in a transformation towards sustainable societies. In doing so, the faculty is committed to Radboud University's mission in contributing to a healthy, free world with equal opportunities for all. In the context of our 'Responsible governance for sustainable societies' mission, we address scientific and societal challenges from a good governance perspective. Our work focuses on the topics Beyond Economy, Climate, Inclusivity, Safety, and Democracy. By building, questioning and extending the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (UN SDG's), we acknowledge their interrelatedness and focus on a number of grand challenges within society. On topics such as inequality, gender, decent work and poverty, we contribute to innovation and sustainable growth. Furthermore, we address environmental and climate challenges, seeking to contribute towards resolving them. At Nijmegen School of Management, academic research and teaching are carried out in challenging educational programmes. These programmes are offered in the areas of Business Administration
, Economics and Business Economics, Geography, Planning and Environment, Political Science and Public Administration. Academic research takes place within the Institute for Management Research
(IMR). Research is carried out within the above mentioned domains and in interdisciplinary research groups: the Hot Spots. The Nijmegen School of Management currently has 350 FTE staff and 5,000 students.
You will officially be based within the Chair Group of Marketing, which is part of the Department of Business Administration. The research of the Chair Group of Marketing aligns with the Responsible Organisation research programme
of the Department of Business Administration. More specifically, the research of the members of the chair group focuses on the responsible aspects of marketing management and innovation, including topics such as radical innovation management, customer co-creation, stakeholder marketing, open innovation, and responsible new product development. Furthermore, you will work closely with iHub. iHub's mission is to better understand the effects of digitalisation on our society and to help steer digital transformations in ways where public values are central. iHub brings disciplines from across the humanities, computer science and social sciences together to address challenges raised by digitalisation, focuses on the core values which are destabilised and need protection in digitalisation processes, and adopts a critical and constructive approach. Different disciplinary perspectives and diverse quantitative and qualitative methods are necessary for understanding how we adapt to digital transformations and for crafting solutions to the challenges they pose. iHub therefore fosters interdisciplinary, collaborative research that involves academics from a wide range of disciplines, including computer science, philosophy, law, linguistics, educational sciences, behavioural and communication sciences, science and technology studies, and organisational studies, and history.
We want to get the best out of science, others and ourselves. Why? Because this is what the world around us desperately needs. Leading research and education make an indispensable contribution to a healthy, free world with equal opportunities for all. This is what unites the more than 24,000 students and 5,600 employees at Radboud University. And this requires even more talent, collaboration and lifelong learning. You have a part to play!
