For over 45 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 and developing the school into a force for positive change.

Just like our host country, one of the world's most renowned and open minded 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; one that is critical, creative, caring and collaborative, and committed to the UN’s 17 Sustainable Development Goals. 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.
