Economics and Rotterdam are unequivocally connected. With its longstanding worldwide reputation as the gateway to Europe, with its continual high level of activity in many branches of commerce, the city lives and breathes business, transport, finance. Not surprising, the founders of the ‘Nederlandse Handels-Hoogeschool’ (‘Dutch School of Commerce’), Erasmus School of Economics’ forerunner, confidently chose Rotterdam as home to their educational institution. This vibrant city with its world port was clearly the ultimate setting for excellent educational facilities to shape future leaders in transport, trade and commerce.
Today, over a century later, the school’s strong ties with the city, its port, businesses and numerous financial institutions are still very much intact. Erasmus School of Economics has developed into a leading academic institution in the world with its problem-oriented teaching methods and market oriented research. Exactly these qualities enable us to rapidly adjust to any changes in the business environment and stay ahead of the game, host many of the world’s experts in their fields of research and bring you top-level Master and post experience Master programmes in all major areas of economics and business.
So, are you looking for academic excellence in a fun and vibrant city? Look no further! As the leading university in the fields of economics and econometrics in the Netherlands, located in the city that is recommended by the Lonely Planet and the BBC, Erasmus School of Economics is everything you are looking for.
