Rotterdam School of Management | Erasmus University

Introduction
EFMD Equis Accredited
AACSB Accredited

Over the past 40 years, Rotterdam School of Management, Erasmus University has firmly established its reputation as one of Europe’s leading business schools.

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 most 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.

RSM Approach

At RSM, leadership development is about the realisation of intellectual and personal potential. Here, you will be intellectually challenged by the highest-level academic content and under the direction of the sharpest business thinkers: faculty who draw on years of experience working for organisations as well as insights from their own research. You will challenge us: questioning facts as they are presented and critically-assessing assumptions. And you will challenge yourself: confronting your limitations, pushing past boundaries, discovering what really drives your behaviour and that of others.

Developing the skills to be able to turn leading ideas into outstanding results in business, requires action. All programmes provide students with scope to act on their ideas in real or simulated business environments, from company associateships and internships to actual consultancy projects, international travel and participation in clubs and student-managed conferences.

At RSM, diversity is not only valued, it is encouraged and developed. In a uniquely open and cooperative environment, you will find the space to explore new ways of thinking, the inspiration to challenge ideas, and ultimately, the scope to develop your own potential as a future leader in business.
