Nora Dorsman

My name is Nora Dorsman and I am 19 years old. I was born and raised by Dutch parents in Vancouver, Canada and therefore have both a Dutch and Canadian nationality. I always knew throughout high school that I wanted to attend university in the Netherlands and therefore made the choice to attend Maastricht University. I successfully completed my first year of International Business before starting my board year. Apart from studying, I’m an incredibly active person so you’re most likely to find me on a run, in the gym or riding a horse. Besides that, I enjoy reading, traveling, and spending time with my friends both within and outside of SCOPE.

I only recently joined SCOPE this spring and was a member of the Amsterdam Trading Trip committee. Despite my short time as an active member, I quickly came to the conclusion that SCOPE was an association I wanted to become more involved in, given its like-minded and motivated community of individuals. Becoming a full-time board member presented the perfect opportunity to devote my time and effort in being a part of the organisation that gives students at SBE a chance for both personal and professional development.

I would love the chance to help provide students with the opportunities to become knowledgeable about the careers that are available to them. SCOPE already has an extensive career portfolio, consisting of both events and trips alike. My goal is to explore the ways in which this portfolio can be maximized to its full potential through additions or adjustments. I look forward to providing all participants in SCOPE’s career activities, whether that be SBE students, SCOPE actives or university representatives, with value that goes beyond their expectations. Furthermore, I am keen on enabling students to identify what they want out of their future as I strongly believe this is one of the greatest challenges a large majority of students face during their university years. SCOPE already does a phenomenal job of doing this, I would like to be able to maintain and build further upon this strength.

I’m excited to work alongside the board of 2019/2020 and I am certain we will endure a great amount of learning both as a team and individually. I look forward to experiencing this learning curve with not only the proposed fulltime board but also with our pillar coordinators, active and passive members. I look forward to having a hand in positively influencing the impact SCOPE has on the population at the Maastricht University School of Business and Economics.
