The Faculty Strategic Plan

The UvA publishes its Strategic Plan once every 6 years. In this document, the organisation reflects on its activities and performance during the past 6 years and identifies areas that need to be changed, updated or improved. In the Faculty Strategic Plan, EB has charted its course for the coming 6 years (2021-2026). EB has set itself 4 priorities that in short are referred to as 'Impact Through Engagement':

  1. Optimalising the education portfolio to increase students' academic success rates.
  2. Raise awareness about our research and boost its societal impact .
  3. Expanding our networks (corporate and alumni) to raise UvA's profile outside of the university.
  4. Develop relationships within the UvA and outside of the institution.
