Profile Tilburg University
At Tilburg University, our mission is to inspire students and faculty members to reach their full potential, and in doing so, reap a positive impact on the society around them.
Our educational programmes instil a broad social awareness in our students along with critical personal and professional skills. Learning and development are offered at all career levels. Research endeavours aim to advance the frontiers of knowledge on issues and subjects of direct value to society – and are actively disseminated and applied within the community with this objective in mind. We play an active part in the local community and that of the region, the Netherlands and the entire world, maintaining close contact at all levels.
While our culture is rooted in the Christian and humanist traditions of our European heritage, we are open to all cultures and traditions, and actively invite students, academics and practitioners from all corners of the world to participate in our activities. We offer opportunities for academic pursuit and reflection regardless of personal philosophy. We strive to maintain a very prominent position in all our specialist areas of academic endeavour – from economics and business administration to law, the social sciences, the humanities and theology. In many fields, we are already ranked among the top institutes in Europe. We intend to build upon our established reputation in every way possible.
