I was lucky to have Joris as a professor for my accounting course in the MBA. He shared the precise knowledge for managers to evaluate businesses from a financial perspective. He is up to date in all the latest normatives and has vast experience in M&A and company valuation. I learned a lot from him and he was always willing to go beyond the academic for us to understand how we can read an get to know a company through its numbers.

I have had the privilege of attending some of the courses Joris hosted and thorougly enjoyed it. Joris is outstanding in taking traditionally difficult courses such as accounting and making it practical, simple and interesting. I did not only learn important theoretical concepts in his courses but more importantly how to practically apply them in my career. Whetever a student has a financial and/or accounting background/career or not, the courses Joris hosts adds value to the careers of everyone who attends .

I was so lucky to have an accounting course through my MBA program at MSM with Prof. Kersten in November 2018. The course was well structured and practical; and therefore, individuals who did not have any background could easily follow the topics. We were given lots of exercises during the course to ensure we deeply understand the topics. We were assigned a practical assignment to analyze the financial statements (P&L, cash flow and balance sheet) of one of the well-known NL company as a final project. I felt more confident after doing this course with him as a result. His courses are highly recommended indeed.

I can say that it was a week of much learning where I had several difficulties that I had in Accounting, explained by Joris. Excellent teacher and facilitator. The tasks are different from the courses already done in this area, because he address current data and topics. It was not merely solving exercises, I was able during the training to understand and learn to interpret the data through the numbers! It was enriching and certainly contributed to my professional growth!

Some courses are evolutionary, a very few one is REVOLUTIONARY, like Joris course about finance, because of following: 1- In some parts of course I could't recognize that he is my professor or our consultant. He focused on vital parts of finance course professionally; such as parameters (indicators) to find how much a company is effective in view of financial issues. 2- His training method was interactive. I hope to have the opportunity to meet him in the future.

He is very professional in his teaching. his training program was well designed and useful enough for people like me who had not any background about finance in the business world. It was a remarkable experience for me. A few months later, I will have an Accounting course with him, also. I hope it will be great for me, as before. I think his lecture will be applicable to everyone that wants to enter the finance world.

I had the chance to pass Finance course with Joris. I truly found it very interesting and useful for either Marketers or Entrepreneurs. Frankly, one of the main reason was the way I’ve been learnt by him. His lecturing skill was world class, sharp, easy to understand beside his great attitude and eagerness to teach. The Finance and investment knowledge he got can simply lead your business to another level for being less risky and more profitable. All of these caused the Finance course turned to my favorite session of MBA.

It is my honor to provide this recommendation for Mr. Joris Kersten as he pursues a teaching position in Maastricht School of Management. As the student of MBA, I have had the pleasure of working with him in finance course. I have seen how he works and I have enjoyed having him on the teaching team for MBA. He is an organized teacher who develops relationships with his students. Joris teaching concepts and topics in his subjects are exceptional. He also has excellent written and verbal communication skills in English language. As an Engineer, I did not know anything about corporate financing, but after passing this course with Joris, I am able to analyse a new business and calculate if the company were profitable by obtaining NPV, IRR and FV. Today I am able to write business plans and develop my skills in this regard. I hope to see Joris again in my Accounting course in the near future. I wish him well.

Joris was my MSM professor in Finance last June, a course compulsory in the MBA program. The way Joris explained the subjects of finance was exciting and full of energy, Thanks to his clever way of explaining fairly complicated subjects, I'm now not only able to better grasp finance topics, but I'm triggered in reading finance related articles as well. I would highly recommend Joris for anyone or any business who is in need of training in Finance. Joris is very knowledgeable, devoted, full of energy, and very pleasant to work with. But besides finance we also talked during the breaks about his family, sports, travelling, and meditation :) Daniel Busropan

Bij TIAS business school heeft Joris de 3-daagse cursus Corporatie Finance & Accounting gegeven. Voorafgaand aan de cursus was de lesstof vrij nieuw voor mij. Joris is sterk in het combineren van de juiste snelheid van het passeren van de stof met het continu vertalen van theorie naar praktijkvoorbeelden. Dit heeft ervoor gezorgd dat ik een goed begrip heb van de stof in relatief korte tijd en het goed kan toepassen in mijn werk. Zeer tevreden!

Joris is a passionate lecturer. I met him during an MBA Summer Specialization course that was held last July 2018 in Maastricht School of Management - Netherlands. The subject was “Financial Accounting & Reporting”. He has inspired me not only to understand the subject but also to improve my knowledge, education and seriously consider changes to my career path and future profession from his lectures and teachings. He was for me an intelligent young lecturer who has encouraged me to follow some of the steps he has taken to his success. I am happily recommending him here on LinkedIn, and will do so in person to my colleagues when given the opportunity.

Joris heeft afgelopen jaar een gastcollege Corporate Finance gegeven aan mij en mijn medestudenten op Nyenrode. Van de 3-daagse curus was dit absoluut de meest interessante en leukste college. De manier waarop jij informatie kan overbrengen, de aandacht erbij kan houden en het boven alles leuk blijft houden, is maar voor enkelen weggelegd. Ik wou dat er meer docenten een zelfde positieve energie hebben en dit ook kunnen overbrengen. Ik kijk er heel erg naar uit om in de toekomst meer colleges van je te volgen.

In kader van mijn MScBA opleiding aan TIAS heb ik colleges Accounting & Finance gevolgd, waarvoor Joris als docent verantwoordelijk was. Joris kon in 8 dagdelen de complexe materie op een duidelijke en gestructureerde wijze overbrengen aan een collegezaal met grote diversiteit. Daarnaast wist hij de theorie met interessante voorbeelden te verrijken zodat ook de meer ervaren studenten waardevolle lessen mee konden nemen naar hun praktijk. Naast de inhoudelijke kant is Joris ook prettig in omgang, wat ik van groot belang vind tijdens een intensieve collegesessie. Ik kan hem dan ook van harte aanbevelen als deskundig docent op verschillende deelgebieden van finance.

I was particularly impressed by Joris’s ability to explain accounting in a simple way. He teaches with real passion. He paid a special attention to the students’ understanding of the subject and adjusted the speed of lecture if it was necessary. If you need a well-organized and easy to understand training on accounting or corporate finance, you are looking for Joris.

His understanding and passion for Accounting & Finance is clear for all to see and he explains everything with real-world examples which is helpful for remembering the various concepts. I had no background in Accounting or Finance but after his classes, "Accounting For Managers" & "Financial Accounting & Reporting", I can say that Financial Statements don't seem daunting anymore. I couldn't recommend Joris highly enough as both a trainer and a consultant.

Just as I was working 5 months in the field of M&A and corporate finance, I had some experience with business valuation, but still I was missing the thread was missing. During the 1 day training by Joris in Business valuation I figured out the thread in the business valuation. Besides the lessons learned I loved the discussions that arose and how every advisor approaches problems differently, but within a certain band with. Thereby I learned that the one isn't necessarily better than the other, but that they both can just be as good as long as the story matches the numbers. If you're looking for an energizing training and want to learn more about corporate finance or M&A I would suggest you to participate in this training.

Joris has an excellent teaching skill. Joris had taught us a course- “Accounting for Managers” in Maastricht school of business, internationally accredited business school. Having no background in finance and accounting, I was little concerned and skeptical about the course and learnings. However, during the course, I found myself comfortable with the concepts of accounting due to his teaching style. His didactic approach infuses a lot of confidence in me and the best part of his pedagogical style is to have the cohort learn by practicing problems rather than cramming the concepts. After explaining the concepts holistically, he assists the students in understanding the concepts by getting them solve problems. Joris, being an independent consultant in Mergers and Acquisitions, often discuss real-life problems, belonging to the subject, and encourage students to partake in discussions. Being taught by him was a great learning experience.

Few people with my background understand the basics of accountancy but I do since I attended the Accountancy module by drs Joris Kersten. I was privileged to have Joris as a teacher during the EMBA program at the Maastricht School of Management (January 2018). I was impressed by his ability to teach full of enthusiasm and relaxed (despite the limited time) complex matters in a very structured way, so that every student, independent of his/her background, could understand. You transformed the stereotypically boring accountancy into an appealing field and learned us how to portray the financial health of a business. I hope many more students will have the opportunity to benefit from your superb teaching and expertise in the field of finance and accountancy!

I believe that a significant challenge for business schools is how to bring applicability and sense of reality into the classroom. Mr. Joris managed to do that effectively by creating the hands-on exercises and business environment that we see in the real market. Also, the humbleness in recognizing that learning is a continuous process demonstrates rare teacher’s quality. Ultimately, I’ve lost the fear of facing the big daunting financial statements, reaching an adequate comprehension of the theme.

I enjoyed his classes, his pedagogical approach was very much practical and not dictating. Joris gave room to opinions and discussion while also keep the main theme intact with the core learning objectives. His views of business were also quite informative for our extended learning. The final assessment of our course let me study to the extent of getting the main understanding in the knowledge of accounting which is needed as an executive without pushing too far beyond the reach of someone who has no finance background.

I found all his lessons very relevant and useful for my future professional path. Thank you Joris!

This made his lectures enjoyable and easy to follow even despite the often complex material he discussed. He is able to transfer the passion he has for his field to his audience as many of our group are now considering a specialization in finance and accounting. What I especially appreciate about Joris is that he is very conscientious and easy to approach. Even though he teaches in many different schools to hundreds of students, he will always provide an appropriate answer within a short time frame. Without reservation I would recommend Joris to anyone who is looking for advice in finance, accounting and M&As!

I particularly liked his ability to provide a clear structure and guide us through the topics step by step, and being able to answer the many questions form the large group of 40+ at the same time. Overall an excellent experience!

I attended Accounting lecture of Joris at MSM for the Executive MBA group in January 2018. I really enjoyed his classes, he was very clear and articulate. He kindled my interest in Accounting and Finance very much. Even though it was a very condensed lecture for 4 days, i felt like i could become an account if i want. Joris was very open and patient in answering all our questions. The best thing is what i learnt in the class, i can apply it both in personal and professional life. Joris is able to assess the audience capacity and lecture accordingly. He is so passionate about what he is doing that he inspired me and i hope the rest of the class too. I highly recommend attending Joris's lectures to all prospective students. I wish you all the best Joris for your future endeavours.

Very pleasant Accounting course I had with Mr Joris Kersten who lectured at MSM few weeks ago! He simplified the theories to make it easy to assimilate and with his good selection of exercises we had the opportunity to put the new learnings into practice. If you want to improve your Accounting and Finance skills, I highly recommend you to attend Joris lectures.

I had the privilege to attend Joris his 4-day ‘Accounting’ class during my Executive MBA program at Maastricht School of Management in mid-January 2018. Joris is a great lecturer and brings his ‘theory’ with a lot of energy. Very easy to listen to and a superb practice-oriented explanation. Thanks again Joris, I enjoyed it a lot!

I had lectures from Joris at the Maastricht School of Management, where he taught "Accounting" for the Executive MBA class. It was really refreshing how Joris could elaborate on this often experienced as "dry stuff". His vivid way of teaching and didactical approach takes you step by step in better understanding of financial reports. It was a pleasure taking lessons from him and he is very professional in charing knowledge.

I had the opportunity to attend a 4-full day session of Joris Kersten on accounting and finance during mid Jan 2018, as a part of my EMBA at MSM, Maastricht. I am very much impressed with his teaching skills. He structured the sessions in a very efficient way. I liked, the way he deliberated in the class and made us understand the subject, especially with the students having different educational background. His every lecture was supported with case studies and exercises, which made the sessions more interesting. I would love to attend few more of his lecture sessions in future, extending my in-depth leaning towards the company valuation and M&A activities. I strongly recommend to undertake his lecture sessions. Thanks Mr. Kersten

I sat in Joris’s MBA class last January. It was my first lecture type of session after I graduated from university 17 years ago. While I was concerned about whether or not I made the right decision to go back to sitting in a classroom, i was lucky to start my MBA with Joris’s. His way of bringing the subject to a group of professionals in class is very sophisticated. A great combination of field experience in financial decision making, along with best practices fueled with lots of logic and simulated in class discussion. Bravo and Thank you Joris.

His dominance and passion for the topic make the classes very interesting, and the explanations very clear. He was always open to answer questions related to the topic, moreover, he was open to discuss other topics of interest for students, like investments, cryptocurrencies, and so on; I take this positive attitude as an extra and I am very satisfied with it. The bottom line is that Joris is a very good teacher, great person with impeccable ethics and he has a great sense of humor. I totally recommend his courses, you will definitely enjoy them and you will learn something new.

Joris has been teaching accounting for managers at MSM to our group in November 2017. His main goal was for the group to understand the basics & answer questions. Even for a group that did not have any background in accounting at all, Joris succeeded to lecture the basics until the advanced knowledge to any individual of the group, so that everybody understands it. This is something I have not seen very often. Therefore I recommend Joris as a lecturer on accounting and finance.

Joris is one of the greatest assets of MSM. As a lecturer, he knows the way to make Accounting course more understandable for students who have no basis in accounting. My bachelor education was Psychology and on the first day of Accounting course, I was hesitating whether I would understand and survive in this course. He is kind of lecturer that always give the priority to its students and makes sure that all his students understand the subject that he taught. I can see that he puts his heart into teaching and that is why we as students always love to attend his class.

Joris was the instructor for an Accounting course I took at the Masters level of a Management program at the Maastricht School of Management. This course was led expertly by Joris who not only was very knowledgeable in his field, but was able to convey this knowledge well as a teacher. As a student, and as someone with a background in education myself, I am more than happy to attest to Joris' teaching style. He was attentive to pacing and flexible with his lesson plan to suit his students' needs and interests. He was looking for and open to feedback, ensuring his class got the most out of their experience. Joris also managed class time and resources quite effectively, using other texts and materials to support what he was lecturing about. Most importantly, from an educational point of view, Joris understands that being a good teacher includes honesty and a drive for learning. If Joris was confronted with a question to which he did not know the answer, he would admit that it was not something with which he was familiar. He would then proceed to pursue the topic with the students to reveal the answer to the issue or to facilitate a discussion about it. This ability to lead a learning environment was greatly appreciated by the class and allowed for a great deal of education. All in all, Joris Kersten was a fantastic addition to my time as a student at MSM, and I hope our paths cross in the future.

Joris Kersten provides a uniquely competent perspective on Accounting due to his history of lecturing at multiple universities along with his experience as the owner of his own financing company. In class, he was able to introduce the subject material in a relatable way by understanding my position as a student in an intensive masters program, in which learning time was greatly limited, and encouraged what was feasible to learn and take away from the class sessions. He provided a fresh perspective on Accounting by sharing his business knowledge and showing how he applied materials taught in class to his own business. I highly recommend Joris Kersten as a lecturer and would be happy to a take another class from him in the future.

I had the chance to participate in the course: Financial Accounting & Reporting by professor Joris Kersten as part of the MBA program at Maastricht School of Management in July 2017. I enjoyed the pace an environment of the class as Joris allowed lots of questions and clarified the concepts discussed in a very practical way, with lots of real recent cases. Although I initially thought that the course final assignment was too long and hard; the final result was that I learnt a lot as the initial parts segmented through each question, eventually as I worked further in the report, they sum up as a whole in order to answer the final questions creating a detail and overall understanding of the company that we analyzed. It was a valuable experience, I learnt a lot. Daniel Mazzini (MBA MSM 2017)

Dit maakte dat zowel ikzelf, als mijn klas, nieuwsgierig werden over de verbanden en nieuwe inzichten. De manier van lesgeven van Joris is door het gebruik maken van praktijkvoorbeelden, die voor iedereen herkenbaar zijn, erg verhelderend.

Voor de Masterclass Corporate Finance/financieel management, onderdeel van mijn MBA opleiding Overheid -en Non Profit, was Joris Kersten de docent. Zijn ervaring en kennis van dit vak in combinatie met zijn enthousiaste en betrokken houding zorgen ervoor dat de stof en inhoud ongeacht de achtergrond van de studenten voor iedereen begrijpelijk wordt. Door de interactie met de groep te zoeken en dieper in te gaan op problemen (ook uit de praktijk) wordt vanuit diverse perspectieven inzicht verkregen. In elk geval heeft deze Masterclass, zeker ook door Joris' wijze van doceren, bijgedragen aan een grotere kennis en interesse op het gebied van financieel Management. Joris is zeker een aanbeveling!

Ik he van Joris mogen genieten als docent van het vak Financieel Management tijdens mijn HBO studie. Door zijn enthousiasme en brede kennis in zijn vakgebied weet hij je iedere les weer te boeien. Door praktijkgerichte en herkenbare voorbeelden, worden ook de moeilijke (vaak in eerste instantie saai lijkende) delen van de stof leuk en interessant. "Pas als je iets helemaal begrijpt, kun je het ook uitleggen" is bij Joris meer dan van toepassing. Onverwachts werd dit tot nu toe een van de leukste vakken van de studie.

Hij is een docent die de praktijk van het dagelijks leven goed combineert met de soms zware theorie d.m.v. praktijk gerichte voorbeelden, kortweg een prima docent en een leuke vent in de omgang doordat hij tussen zijn studenten staat.

I am a student at the University of Amsterdam and study the entrepreneurship minor. Joris organised a workshop on financing for the startups in our course. It was really interesting to learn about the finance aspects of starting a business. It made me realise that it was one of the aspects that are very important for the success of any business. While me and my team had talked about finances before, we had not taken the time to plan out a well-devised strategy. In the workshop we learned to put together and connect various accounts such as the Profit & Loss statement and cash flows. This was a more practical approach to entrepreneurship and made our business more real. We hope to use the skills that Joris taught us and turn our startup into a successful business.

Omdat e.e.a. toegespitst werd op de huidige werksituatie ook een goede combinatie kunnen maken met de opleiding en de uiteindelijke paper. Ik zal dus zeker bij Joris willen aanbevelen indien men een financiële update wil volgen,

Dear Joris It was a pleasure to meet you in Eindhoven for giving an English spoken lecture in understanding the basics and financing for startup entrepreneur Companies. As an experienced lecturer I will give you credit for a great job by involving the Danish Academy student a lot during your lesson. You understand in a good way that learning takes time, and develops even within a lecturers expected plan to provide extra value add to a subject by respecting this. Therefore my best wishes for you to have new training sessions for Young Dutch Potentials - because it is easy to teach people to bankrupcy but difficult to learn to become winners. Best regards from Ass. Professor, Torben Pedersen, Lillebaelt Academy for higher Educations, Odense, Denmark.

I had the pleasure to attend one of Joris' training sessions explaining how to prepare for investment as a startup founder. Joris is a gifted public speaker who is able to break down the complex theory of investment financing into easy to understand steps. Joris is able to make things very practical and shows how small actions and milestones relate to your p&l, your valuation and your investment proposition. I would recommend one of his sessions for any founder looking for investment.

Ik heb Joris leren kennen als een gedreven docent, die studenten inzicht gaf in de soms ingewikkelde wereld van Finance. Het ondernemerschap had toen al zijn grote belangstelling dus zijn overstap naar het full time bestieren van zijn eigen bedrijf verbaast me niet. Jammer voor de Fontysstudenten!

Joris heeft in juni 2016 een gastcollege "Finance voor startups" verzorgd op de Rabobank Gooi en Vechtstreek voor 20 ondernemers van startups die deelnamen aan Startup Gooi en Vechtstreek. Joris heeft dit gastcollege met veel passie en enthousiasme gegeven! Hij is inhoudelijk zeer sterk op het vakgebied financiering en daarnaast weet hij de boodschap over te brengen op de startup ondernemers! Hij doet dit met voorbeelden, waarbij hij goed de aansluiting maakt met de bedrijven van de ondernemers. Ik kijk terug op een prettige en constructieve samenwerking. Joris zijn aandeel heeft ons verder geholpen.

Joris begrijpt als geen ander hoe je complexe materie verstaanbaar maakt zodat je als professional er meteen mee aan de slag kunt in je dagelijkse praktijk. Als docent en trainer is hij bevlogen en gepassioneerd maar vooral ook heel erg kundig. Recente wetenschappelijke inzichten vertaalt hij probleemloos naar de leefwereld van studenten, ondernemers en professionals. Joris was dan ook één van de allerbeste docenten uit mijn team bij Fontys Hogescholen drs.
