Olivia Rusu

Job summary/responsibilities

Olivia joined Studyportals in November 2013. After five years of successfully setting up and managing the content and data centre of Studyportals, in Bucharest, Romania (Studyportals Intelligence Agency), she decided to take up new challenges in the role of Marketing Manager for the Intelligence Team (Client Marketing), at our headquarters in Eindhoven.

General introduction/background

Olivia’s academic background starts with a BA in Political Philosophy, during which she did her Erasmus in Padua, Italy, continuing with an MSc. in Marketing and ending (maybe) with the Erasmus Mundus Master in Bioethics. She is an active member of the Erasmus Mundus Students and Alumni Association (EMA), one of Studyportals students’ partner organisations. Previously, she worked for Reuters Romania, as Sales and Marketing Assistant.

Key challenge

Her main challenge is to assure that Studyportals marketing activities are as efficient as possible and deliver the expected results, while never forgetting our clients and partners’ happiness, nor our brand identity.

Favourite activities

When she is not running the Marketing team, she gets involved in various social activities with friends, singing being one of them. Also, at least once per week, she engages in ‘sabre’ fighting (during fencing classes, only!). She also loves travelling and escaping the city for the seaside.

Favourite Listed Programme

Favourite Listed Programme: Erasmus Mundus Master of Bioethics is the programme she graduated after finding it on mastersportals.com. The programme was taught during one year period, via the collaboration between KU Leuven – Belgium, Radboud University Nijmegen – The Netherlands and University of Padova, Padua – Italy
