MAASTRICHT. Five years ago, the team from the School of Business and Economics won the first Maastricht Faculty Fight, a huge sports’ competition between the various faculties that is organised every fifth anniversary year of the UM. Last week a delegation of athletes from six faculties and representatives from the organisers - UM Sports - went to collect the cup from SBE. It was the starting shot for the second edition.
On 12 May 2016, the economics students will defend their title, in celebration of the UM’s fortieth anniversary, with all kinds of special sports activities at various UM locations: from an alternative donor race in Randwijck, to stockbroking on the SBE grounds. Dean Philip Vergauwen, who was not keen to hand over the cup last week, hopes that the trophy will soon be on display again in his room on the Tongersestraat for another five years.
