Edwin van Rest speaking at HRK Conference
Berlin – CEO and one of the founders of StudyPortals, Edwin van Rest was invited as a speaker at the conference “New perspective for Master Study Programmes in Europe: Implementing the second cycle of Bologna – A European success story?”
The event held by the HRK (German Rectors’ Conference) and supported by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research of Germany took place on 25/26th of October 2011 in Berlin.
Van Rest was giving a workshop about “The Importance of Recruiting and Marketing in the emerging Master Market”. In his presentation he focused on the large growth of Master Programmes in Europe since 2002. He referred to large national differences and the growing number of English taught Master’s in continental Europe, with the Netherlands, Germany and Sweden forming the top three. The broadest range of English taught Master degrees is offered within the study disciplines Engineering & Technology as well as Business & Economics.
The audience showed great interest as the StudyPortals statistics give a unique, factual insight in the development of the Master’s market. Also intensive discussions were held on the importance of International Marketing for Universities, targeted towards prospective students. The final conclusions of the whole conference will go to the Ministerial Bologna conference in 2012, with data from StudyPortals’ statistics on the first page. Read moreFor more updates, follow us!
