Alumnus sponsors Londen School of Economics Summer School course for student Christiaan van den Berg

Student Chritisaan van den Berg together with Dean Philip Hans Franses & alumnus Dick Verbeek of Erasmus School of Economics

A dream has come true for Christiaan van den Berg, BSc² in Econometrics and Economics student. This summer he will attend an intensive three-week undergraduate course at the Londen School of Economics Summer School in London. His attendence has been made possible with financial support of Dick Verbeek, alumnus of Erasmus School of Economics.

Verbeek (1950), who studied economics in Rotterdam and led Aon (the world's leading provider of global risk management, insurance brokerage and consulting services) in Europe for almost 20 years, granted Christiaan with a scholarship through the Erasmus Education Fund. Just before he sets off on his trip to London Christiaan was able to meet Dick Verbeek in person in the Theil Building on Woudestein campus.
