STrategic business Development  

The University of Twente is at the core of society and has an outward-looking perspective. Working together with companies is an essential component of this. After all, today's students are tomorrow's professionals. Apart from contact with (semi-) government authorities, alumni and other universities, we maintain intensive contact with our industrial partners, both national and international ones.
