Food for Thought
Food for Thought is a monthly interview event organized by the Tilburg School of Economics and Management in close cooperation with Faculty Association ASSET. During lunchtime a renowned person is being interviewed on current issues by specially trained students. This perfectly fits the mission of Tilburg University: to improve understanding of complex social issues and to contribute to a better society.
All students, employees and visitors are more than welcome to walk by, listen to the debate and ask questions. The interviews are held in Dutch, unless otherwise stated. Most interviews are followed by a master class for a selected group of students during an informal lunch, organized in collaboration with Academic Forum.
