    Pros

    International educational institution and academic level of study. The campus is very attractive with many excellent facilities and convenient access to the city of Rotterdam.

    Cons

    Few female professors and hardly any women in boardroom/management. This is quite old-fashioned in contemporary society, seems to be governed by the 'Old Boys Network' and furthermore the level of English is not up to standard yet.

    Advice to Management

    Improve English language and employ more women directors and senior managers as well as professors.
