About MAK

MAK Mentorship System is the Mentorship System for Tilburg School of Economics and Management (TiSEM). MAK focuses on helping students to get adjusted to student life, both study-related and socially. Besides, it is the goal of MAK to provide useful information to prospective, first year and pre-master students. Moreover, MAK supports (senior) students in their study program. These goals are translated in our core pillars Introduction activities, Study information, Educational support and Social activities, which are elaborated below.

Introduction activities

MAK organizes several introduction activities in order to give TiSEM freshmen the best start possible in their student careers. The MAK Introduction Day (MID) is a perfect example of such an activity in which MAK tries to stimulate integration within TOP/Year groups by organizing several teambuilding activities. Furthermore, we also organize the Kick-off days in which we introduce TiSEM and all its facets to upcoming students.

Study information

Furthermore, MAK aims to provide useful study information to prospective, first year and pre-master students. The Student for a Day (SfaD) is a perfect example of an event that contributes to this pillar. During this day, MAK provides all prospective students with information related to all TiSEM study program and to the student life of Tilburg in general.

Educational support

Providing educational support is another pillar on which MAK focuses. It aims to stimulate the academic progress of all TiSEM students. MAK does this via Tutorships and Private Coaching. Tutorships are given in groups of maximum 13 students. During these tutorships, the tutor provides its students with extra information concerning problematic courses. Private Coaching has the same goal, but focuses on one-on-one tutoring in which the student receives all the information it needs to pass his/her exams.

Social activities

MAK also organizes several informal and social activities for both its own active members and other TiSEM students. Activities such as the MAK promo party, the TiSEM beer cantus and the TiSEM lunch are activities in which we stimulate the social interaction among our own active members, but also among TiSEM students in general.

All the activities stated above are organized by our own active members (MAKkers). MAK offers you the possibility to enhance your organizational, planning and team work skills by engaging in active membership. Do you want to improve your student-life and become a MAKker, click here!
