ANNUAL REPORT 2015-2016

STAR Annual Report 2015 - 2016

1


PREFACE Everything comes to an end, thereby also the end of the 38th STAR Board year. One year ago, we started and shortly after, close to 300 active members joined the journey. It has been a journey full of challenges, successes, fun, new friends and plenty of learning experiences. Now that the end of the year has come, it is time to look back at where this journey has brought us. This Annual Report provides you with the quantitative and qualitative results of the year 2015-2016. It illustrates the memorable events, strategic accomplishments and STAR’s financial performance. All these results coming together makes me realize what an impact this journey has made on RSM student life. It demonstrates that nothing is impossible when you are ambitious, dedicated, willing to learn and work as a team. That is what our active members have demonstrated over the year. By turning challenges into opportunities, they have organized impressive events through which they developed themselves professionally and personally. I am truly grateful for their efforts, dedication and positive energy they have given STAR and each other.

Additionally, I would like to thank the supervisory board and verification committee for their continued efforts and contributions to STAR. Your dedication, support and advice have guided us through this year and are very much appreciated. Moreover, the support of and successful collaboration with the Rotterdam School of Management Erasmus University and our main partners have enabled this year’s successes and achievements. I trust that the 39th STAR Board will continue this journey with you and wish them all the best!

Best regards,

Suzanne Bickes Chairman 38th STAR Board

ABOUT STAR

STAR Annual Report 2015 - 2016

STAR is the study association of Rotterdam School of Management, Erasmus University (RSM). With 6,500 members, STAR is Europe’s largest study association and above all the most active and professional study association in the Netherlands. STAR’s mission is to enrich RSM student life; from various perspectives, offering students to join events or organize these themselves. Each year, around 300 dedicated active members organize STAR projects that reach thousands of students.

Apart from academic activities like speakers events, case competitions or selling books, STAR also aims to organize social activities, ranging from freshmen introduction days to periodic parties. RSM students can join us on several international trips; the ski trip, surf trip, race of the classics, various international weeks organized all over the world, study trips and a community development project.

STAR provides students with the opportunity to get in contact with their fellow students, their studies and a broad range of companies. This is facilitated by the great amount of activities that are organized by numerous committees and Master Study Clubs.

The best known events are the STAR Management Week, which consists of social, academic and career events; Erasmus Consultancy Project, where students conduct research for companies in an emerging country and the Erasmus Recruitment Days, which is the largest recruitment event of the Benelux organized by students.

HISTORY In 1969, the ‘Interfaculteit Bedrijfskunde’ (and later on ‘Interuniversitair Instituut Bedrijfskunde’ - IIB) was established, a joint initiative of various faculties of both Erasmus University and Delft University of Technology. In 1977, S.V.I.I.B. (studievereniging IIB) was founded, an association focused on external contacts, internal contacts with scientific staff, and, of course, mutual contacts among business students. The exact meaning of S.V.I.I.B. was lost in 1984, when the faculty of Business Administration became an official part of Erasmus University, and so the name changed to Sviib.

Over the past 38 years, STAR has become an association of influence, diversity, and professionalism. With more than 6,500 members, including 300 active members, we can proclaim to be the largest study association in Europe.

As with the establishment of Rotterdam School of Management (RSM) as we know it today, which led to a more cohesive organisation of BA, IBA, and MBA studies, the aim was to achieve the same cooperation among study associations. Several daughter associations (Dutch: disputen) were established and later on consolidated as Master Study Clubs. More importantly, in early August 2005, Sviib and BActive (association for students of the programme in International Business Administration) merged to become STAR (Study Association of the Rotterdam School of Management), an association with a bit of both worlds and an international focus.

STRATEGY On a yearly basis, STAR develops and executes a policy that is in line with its mission: to enrich RSM students’ life. The 38th STAR Board developed the policy for 2016, thereby considering views of STAR’s main internal and external stakeholders. This year, the policy development process has been critically reviewed, improved and supervised by experienced alumni currently employed at Accenture, McKinsey, and Shell. STAR’s policy is developed within the framework of the association’s Strategic House, consisting of four strategic pillars (Career Start Support, Social activities, Academic Support, and Societal Impact) with objectives. In addition to the four pillars there are three layers supporting the Strategy House, namely: projects, members, and enablers. These layers consist of sixteen initiatives that were identified by the 38th STAR Board and form the focus points of 2016’s strategy execution in order to reach the strategic objectives. None of all this would be possible if it were not for the students who organize the various activities that underpin these pillars and initiatives, STAR’s Active Members. They continuously develop themselves through the organization of activities within their respective committees. Their development is of crucial importance to the association and their work directly and indirectly contributes to achieving the strategic objectives. The annual report captures a high-level overview of 2016’s policy, the defined strategic goals and objectives and the intermediate achievements contributing to reaching these goals and fulfilling STAR’s mission.
