Global marketing manager, New York Media Group
Carolien Buijs graduated from RSM’s business administration programme in 2005. Specialising in marketing management, she is now global marketing manager at New York Media Group, leading the marketing team and thriving on her company’s positive can-do mentality.
“I have many fond memories of my time at RSM. I won the Marketing Thesis Award and was part of scientific research on consumer behaviour. I loved being a part of the university, studying in the library, drinking ‘Mellow Mornings and Heavenly Hazels’ and walking around campus in all seasons. I remember drinking beers at café In de Smitse with my fellow students and members of the ‘Introductiecommissie Bedrijfskunde’ where I fulfilled the role of Commissaris Bedrijfskunde’
“At RSM, I learned to persevere and go the extra mile. I now apply this both to my work and my love of travel. I’d advise anyone starting at RSM today to do the same. Always be critical and think for yourself. And when times are difficult, look for the sparks that can give you that little extra energy you need. If you do that, you’ll get the results that can push you even further.”
