At Tilburg University, our mission is to inspire students to reach their full potential, and in doing so, have a positive impact on the society around them. Our educational programs instill broad social awareness along with critical personal and professional skills. We provide learning and development at all career levels. Our research work aims to advance the frontiers of knowledge on issues and subjects that are of direct value to society. It is actively disseminated and applied within the community with this objective in mind. Being a student at Tilburg University means becoming more aware of the issues facing our rapidly globalizing world and how you can contribute to the development of a better, fairer and more sustainable society.
Whilst our culture is rooted in the Christian and humanist traditions of our European heritage, we are open to all cultures and traditions, and actively invite students, academics and practitioners from all corners of the world to participate in our activities. We offer opportunities for academic pursuit and reflection regardless of personal philosophy.
We strive to maintain a very prominent position in all our specialist areas of academic ranging from economics and business administration to law, the social sciences, the humanities and theology. In many fields, we are already ranked among the top institutes in Europe. We intend to build upon our established reputation in every way possible.
The city of Tilburg is one of the greenest cities in the Netherlands, and our focus on sustainability is also reflected in the University’s research activities, program content and overall culture. Much of Tilburg University runs on green energy, and our leading faculty members undertake a great deal of research work relating to sustainability issues.
