Our SCM group encompasses scholars with diverse research portfolios, ranging from primarily OR/MS or mathematical (such as one of our recent hires, Angelos Tsoukalas) to empirical OM/SCM (such as another recent hire, Leopold Ried). RSM is one of the highest-ranking business schools in Europe in terms of education programs and research quality and output. Research support includes generous means for conference attendance, data collection and research visits; an IT research support team; and a system where research time of faculty is structural.As SCM group we have strong connections especially in the logistics and maritime sectors, leveraging Rotterdam's position as biggest port in Europe and RSM's extensive network of alumni. Our SCM MSc program is consistently ranked in the top 5 worldwide. RSM offers a broad spectrum of responsive student audiences (Bachelor, Master, MBA, Executive, PhD) and teaching offers excellent opportunities for engagement and impact creation, such as in our MSc thesis projects. Courses typically last up to 7 weeks, allowing for longer periods for research. The regular teaching load is lower compared to peer institutions.Our renewed tenure track system offers Assistant Professors the possibility to obtain tenure after three years, resulting in additional research budget ('starter grant'). Requirements for tenure (and promotion) focus on quality and are comparable to other top business schools.Rotterdam is a dynamic, multicultural city with more than 600,000 inhabitants.
