Nice to meet you


Chairman - Jeroen de Korte

Hi! My name is Jeroen de Korte and I am the chairman of the first board of SABA. Currently I am doing the second year of my master in Business Analytics. Next to studying, I started my own company in hospitality revenue management together with a friend from the bachelor.
In the summer of 2017, SABA was founded by my fellow board members and myself. In this first year, my goal is to lay a solid foundation for SABA, so it can be expanded in the coming years into the association that Business Analytics deserves. I will do this by establishing the long-term strategy for SABA. Next to that, I’ll be working on all the things that starting a new study association requires, together with my board members.

Treasurer - Meagan Tjon Sjoe Sjoe

My name is Meagan Tjon Sjoe Sjoe, and I am 22 years old, and just started my master in Business Analytics. This year, I will be the treasurer of the first SABA board. I started at the VU studying Business Administration. Here I was a member of the introduction committee for new students. Doing this, I learned that I really like to organise events, and that I like to be involved with the students. This involvement was something that I missed after I switched to Business Analytics., so I joined the programme committee. I noticed that there was little involvement for the Business Analytics students, which was one of the main reasons for starting SABA.

Secretary - June Tan

My name is June Tan, I am 22 years old and I will be the Secretary of the 1st SABA board. I graduated from my bachelor’s programme Business Analytics in 2017. I had great experiences at the VU, but wasn’t much involved with the university during my bachelor. This changed when I went on an exchange programme to Singapore. Almost every student was involved with the university. As a result, the students bonded like a family. And as a member of the 1st board of SABA I aim to unite all bachelor and master students of Business Analytics.

Chief External Relations - Alexander van Oostveen

My name is Alexander van Oostveen. I'm a 4th year Business Analytics student and chief external relations in the board of SABA. I'm also in the board of Alubwi, Business Analytics' alumni association and my goal is to broaden Business Analytics students' network by connecting them with BA alumni and company recruiters. In my first year I hope to get as many business relations for SABA as possible and put Business Analytics on the map.


Chief Coordinator - Sanjana Nabibaks

Hi there! My name is Sanjana Nabibaks, twenty-two years old and final year bachelor's student Business Analytics. I am the Chief Coordinator of SABA and brain behind the name SABA.
Next to SABA I am currently the General Secretary of the Faculty of Sciences Student Council at the Vrije Universiteit. In my student career and on my exchange semester in Singapore, I have developed several skills, varying from IT skills to interpersonal and teamwork skills. I want to help others to gain these skills as well as I am a person who motivates others to get the best out of themselves. That is why I will set up the commissions for SABA and coordinate these as the Chief Coordinator of SABA. I will be responsible for SABA's growth of active members through these commissions. My other resposibilities are public relations and internal communications.
