Frequently Asked Questions

Do I have to be in Rotterdam to apply for a committee or Master Study Club?
The world is changing rapidly, and we have to adapt ourselves to new ways of working. STAR is open to all students (Dutch and internationals), and we understand that for some it is not possible to be physically in Rotterdam in September.

We are looking for a diverse group of motivated students, of which at least some have to be in Rotterdam. Nonetheless, this is no strict requirement. So if you are looking for a challenge, feel free to apply!

Which committees will be recruited in January?

We are recruiting the following bachelor committees:

  • STAR Management Week
  • STAR Erasmus Consulting – consultants
  • BA Introduction Days
  • IBA Freshmen Weekend
  • Eurekaweek

How much time will I be spending per week?

Master Study Clubs:

From previous years we know a Master Study Club Board can easily be combined with your studies. We give you a lot of freedom in organising your events. Together with your fellow board members you decide on how many activities you organise and how much time you can or want to spend. This gives you the opportunity to plan your events around your busy exam periods.

Bachelor and master committees

The amount of time you will be spending on your committees differs per committee. This varies between 4 to 12 hours per week. More information can be found in our brochure.

The Positions for MSCs

Each MSC consists of multiple functions. Below you can find information about these diverse functions and see which one fits you best!

Chairman & Treasurer

As Chairman/Treasurer of your Master Study Club Board, you are leading your MSC. By identifying the priorities together with your team, you can plan and organize the events you do as best as possible. In addition, you will make sure that the budget of the MSC is used in a responsible, fair manner and optimizes the value brought to students.


As Internal you are the main contact point for the students of your Master, being a spokesperson between them and RSM. You will be in close contact with the department discussing the academic challenges they face. In addition, you will be the go to person for students with questions about everything the MSC organizes.


As an external, you will be in charge of the external relations. By representing your MSC at companies and other external stakeholders, the external is the face of the MSC. Together with companies, you’ll be able to organize events that create the best possible connection between the students and the companies.

Study Trip Coordinator

An important part of the MSC experience, is the yearly Study Trip. You’ll go abroad and explore the business life, innovations and culture in a country that fits your Master’s curriculum. As Study Trip Coordinator, you are responsible for leading your own committee which organizes the Study Trip. After September, you’ll recruit that committee together with your MSC.

RSM's Dean Ansgar Richter about STAR

RSM Dean Ansgar Richter about joining STAR:

“Time spent at university as a student isn’t only for acquiring knowledge, or for specialising in your skills. And it’s not just for preparing for a job or for your career.

In fact, one of the fundamental goals of your academic education is so you can develop yourself personally. You will learn how to think critically, to take responsibility, and how you can become a force for positive change in the world. It might not be obvious to you right now, but in fact a lot of your personal development takes place outside of the classroom. Student life is where you can first try out your new self-awareness, your sense of responsibility, and your critical thinking among your peers.

This is why student associations are a vital part of your university life and your university education. There is lifelong benefit to making this part of your life while you are at university. If you have the opportunity to serve in one of the positions in the STAR Association, then take it. You should seriously consider applying because I am convinced that it offers great opportunities.

With my best regards,
Ansgar Richter
Dean Rotterdam School of Management, Erasmus University”
