Do students know who Jan Tinbergen is? Some students were caught completely unaware, such as student Alexandra (Management of International Social Challenges). “I know that the Tinbergen Building is named after him, but I’m sorry to say that I really don’t know what he did”.  Economics student Armien Zare was very fond of Tinbergen’s contribution: “I’m an economics students so I know who he is. For my masters I also want to study Econometrics, so I hope that I will get to know more about his work.”
