Rotterdam Business School


Age: 21

History: Founded in 1990 as the International School of Economics Rotterdam, Rotterdam Business School has been part of Rotterdam University, University of Applied Sciences since 2002.

Address: Kralingse Zoom 91, 3063 ND, Rotterdam, The Netherlands.

Ambience: Rotterdam is home to the largest port in Europe. The city’s history of international trade has helped to shape what is now seen as the typical ‘roll up your sleeves and get cracking’ Rotterdam mentality. Over 40 different nationalities are represented amongst the student population.

Vital statistics: More than 30,000 students are working on their professional careers at Rotterdam University. Over 2,500 of these students are enrolled in international business programmes at Rotterdam Business School. English-taught bachelors' programmes at Rotterdam Business School include: international business and management studies (IBMS), international business and languages (IBL), and trade management aimed at Asia (TMA). Four English-taught masters' programmes are also offered: master's in consultancy and entrepreneurship, master's in logistics management, master's in finance and accounting and a part-time executive MBA programme.

Added value: Education at Rotterdam Business School follows the Rotterdam Education Model (REM), a mixture of knowledge accumulation, practical experience and personal development. All bachelors' programmes include periods of practical work experience and study or placement abroad. Masters' programmes also incorporate a period of practical training. This allows students to gain both experience in their field and a taste of international business even before they graduate.

Easy to get into? To be admitted to the bachelors' programmes, you will need to have a secondary school diploma (equivalent to a Dutch HAVO, VWO or MBO diploma). Language requirements also apply. To enter the masters' programmes you require a bachelors' degree with a relevant major. Preparation courses are available for students who do not yet meet all the requirements for bachelors' or masters' programmes.

Transport Links: Rotterdam Airport (20 minutes away) and Schiphol Airport (45 minutes away) are within easy reach. Both airports have regular connections to the UK with flights taking between one and one-and-a-half hours. There are also many options for train, bus, and ferry travel between Rotterdam and the UK. Rotterdam’s excellent location also makes weekend trips to neighbouring countries an attractive possibility. By train you can easily travel to Antwerp (35 mins), Brussels (1hr 20mins), Paris (2hrs 40mins) or Dusseldorf (3hrs 20mins).

Costs: For 2011-2012 the fees are €1,713 (EU/EEA students) and € 7,000 (non-EU students) for bachelors' programmes. Masters' programmes cost €5,000 for EU/EEA students and €10,000 for Non-EU students. Fees are subject to change.

Nightlife: Rotterdam is truly a world city. Known as the Netherlands' ultimate festival city, it buzzes with activity all year round. Cultural, sporting, and music events are plentiful, while the diversity of cultures means that the cuisine is truly global, too. Find out more about Rotterdam at rotterdam.info.

Any accommodation? The housing office can help international students to find a room in student accommodation.

Who's the boss? Michel Molier is dean, ably supported by Ard van Aken as vice dean.
