We've been helping students find the right postgraduate course for over a decade.
Welcome to Erasmus University Rotterdam (EUR), an international research university with more than 100 years of experience helping bachelor, master, and PhD students pursue their ambitions in the areas of wealth, health, governance, and culture. International rankings name Erasmus University among the world’s leading players, and students recommend the institution for the quality of the lectures, expertise of the staff and promising career prospects.
We are known for our pragmatic approach, our entrepreneurial vibe, and a “make it happen” mentality that serves to help our 29.000 students and researchers achieve their ambition.
A top-100 research university: From our own student feedback to international university rankings, EUR maintains an excellent reputation. We are proud to be consistently ranked in the top 2% of the world’s best universities.
Notoriously reasonable tuition: Dutch higher education offers incredible value due to a long-term commitment from the Dutch government to educational accessibility: most EUR programmes cost roughly €2,000 for European students, and not too much more for students from other parts of the world.
International community: Located in the Netherlands in the city of Rotterdam, Erasmus University is known for its global mindset, offering the chance to join a truly international environment. 40-60% of students enrolled in English-taught programs come from outside the Netherlands.
At home in urban Rotterdam: Rotterdam is the second biggest city in the Netherlands unique in the country for its experimental architecture. Its huge port, many multinational companies, and melting pot of cultures serve as both a living laboratory for our research and a backdrop for a rich student life.
EUR offers 50+ international postgraduate (master) programmes. In general, master programmes are one year and result in a Master of Science (MSc), Master of Arts (MA) or Master of Laws (LLM) degree. If you anticipate earning a PhD, you may choose to follow a two-year master research programme.

ERIM is the research institute of management at Erasmus University Rotterdam, and was founded by Rotterdam School of Management, Erasmus University (RSM) and Erasmus School of Economics (ESE), both of which excel in their research and teaching programmes. The level and international character of their research and teaching programmes has put both schools at the forefront of academic excellence. They offer a diversified portfolio of accredited teaching and research programmes, ranging from pre-experience MSc to postgraduate Masters and executive development, and from fundamental research to applied research and business support, which are renowned throughout the world. RSM is one of the few schools worldwide that holds a triple accreditation from the AMBAs, EQUIS and the AASCB, and is positioned among the top European business schools. The scientific staff of both schools plays a major role in the schools’ interaction with the international business community.
ERIM distinguishes itself by high level and international character of its research and has repeatedly been ranked among top 3 research institutes in Europe. ERIM’s key aims are top quality academic research with impact both on academia and managerial practice, and the advancement of international academic careers and high-level support for both research and doctoral education. ERIM is accredited by the Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts and Sciences (KNAW). For more information about ERIM please visit www.erim.eur.nl .
IHS is the Institute for Housing and Urban Development Studies of Erasmus University Rotterdam. We love cities and work passionately for their development by offering quality, education, research and training. IHS welcomes talented and driven individuals, who want to extend their expertise in the sphere of urban management and development.
Long before ‘global’ became an important descriptor for business education, RSM’s students, faculty and staff were already reflecting the diversity of the globalising world.
Just like our host country, one of the world's renowned international trading nations, RSM has continued to expand and internationalise, cementing its status as one of Europe’s most international and innovative business schools.
RSM offers a distinctive intellectual culture. We believe that leadership can be taught through a combination of intellectual and practical challenge. We believe that the difficulties encountered working in diverse teams fosters creative new approaches in business. We enjoy a reciprocal, supportive relationship with multinational companies. And we encourage a flexible, broad and sometimes iconoclastic mindset in matters of business practice and research.
This distinct approach has helped RSM to establish a portfolio of top-ranked programmes, as well as one of the world’s largest and most prolific management faculties.
