Daniël van Vliet
EMERGE - Class 06
I would describe myself as a creative, out-of-the-box thinking guy that likes to do things differently. Currently, I am a project lead for the project "Impact at the Core" at Erasmus University Rotterdam. Impact at the Core is a program at Erasmus University Rotterdam that works on developing and strengthening education within which students work together on solutions for societal problems – preparing them to be future Erasmian change-makers. Being able to make a real lasting change in this position and having a purpose is something that sparks a fire in me. Previously I have worked in consultancy, communication, and marketing analytics.
I graduated with an MScBA. from Rotterdam School of Management, Erasmus University in Management and BSc. International Bachelor in Communication and Media from Erasmus University Rotterdam as well. Knowing I wanted to combine my creativity with business, I followed (extra) business courses at Harvard Extension School, Harvard University. It is important for me to be able to use creativity in my work and to think big and strive for that goal. Sometimes all that it takes is a spot on the horizon, in which I like to sketch that spot and bring others along on the journey.
Next to work, I like to keep myself updated with the latest technological gadgets, travel (in specific the United States), watch reality shows, visit Feyenoord games, and entertain and cook for my friends.
