Wittenborg University is developing 5 schools, currently it offers programmes in the School of Business, School of Hospitality & Tourism, School of Arts & Technology, School of Sport & Health and followed by the School of Education. The development of 5 schools is based on its 3 pillars: #internationalisation #diversity & #ethics. “Better yourself, better our world.”
Originally from Beijing, Maggie grew up in the heart of the Chinese capitol, coming to the Netherlands as an exchange student from the Beijing University of Technology, to complete her fifth and final year as a Bachelor student at the University of Applied Sciences in Deventer, where she was also employed as recruitment and relations staff for the contacts with China.
In 2001, Maggie gained a Master of Science in Facility Management from the University of Greenwich (UK), and in 2002 she joined the team of the then named ‘Hogeschool Wittenborg’ to bring internationalisation and international education to the small Dutch institute, at that time based in the Hansiatic Dutch town of Deventer.
Proud to be a Chinese, living in the Netherlands and speaking and working in 3 languages, Maggie Feng is a truly international personality who is continuously aiming to deepen and broaden her knowledge, skills and competences.
