Many successful careers have started here. Graduates of Erasmus School of Economics are equipped with the skills needed for success in the business community, government positions, and research all around the world.
The history of the school goes back to the year 1913 when the ‘Nederlandse Handelshoogeschool’ was established by several entrepreneurial Rotterdam businessmen with the aim to bring economics and business to a higher level by way of scientific methods. In 1939, the school changed names and became known as ‘Nederlandse Economische Hogeschool’ (Netherlands School of Economics).
The name change did not mean a change in the practice orientated way of teaching. Education and research remained its primary focus. By 1973, Netherlands School of Economics became Erasmus University Rotterdam, comprising the medical campus Hoboken and the social campus Woudestein. Even in those days, its aim was the establishment of a vigorous and flourishing University with a – nowadays – prominent Erasmus School of Economics, incorporating a wide range of economic expertise as well as keeping strong ties with the regional and international markets.
Erasmus School of Economics is an internationally renowned school that contributes scientific knowledge to future economic issues and aims to answer currently relevant issues of concern to government and firms. The focus of the school is on the creation, the dissemination, and the application of scientific knowledge, all from an economic perspective. Erasmus School of Economics relies on the most recent insights in the discipline. It collaborates with international scientific partners, and it has local footings in business issues relevant to the unique position that the city of Rotterdam has as a hub of transport and industry. The school ensures working conditions that permit innovative scientific progress and puts the academic education at the centre of its activities.
