Radboud University - Nijmegen School of Management

Radboud University - The Netherlands - European Masters

At our faculty the staff have combined academic research and education to create a challenging curriculum in the fields of public administration, business economics and business economics, geography, environment, environment, spatial planning and political science. 
For years, the educational curriculum at the Nijmegen School of Management has been praised for the attention that it has paid to quality, the supervision of its students, the accessibility of its lecturers and wherever possible, its small-scale teaching. In order to create a stimulating study environment, an active effort and commitment from students is needed. We expect to see this attitude shared by those who come here to study. 

Institute for Management Research
The research programmes of the Nijmegen School of Management are managed by the Institute for Management Research (IMR). The IMR is headed by Prof. dr. Allard van Riel. Please visit www.ru.nl/imr for more information.

Educational Programmes at NSM
NSM offers 8 Master's programmes taught in English, and 1 of them offers Erasmus Mundus scholarships. All programmes are accredited by the Nederlands-Vlaamse Accreditatie Organisatie (NVAO), and therefore recognised world-wide. The programmes are listed below. If a programme offers any specializations, those can be find by clicking on the respective programme or in the Programme section of this page (see above).

The campus and facilities
NSM is a desirable destination for international students: over two hundred courses taught in English, increasing number of international staff, small-sized classes and regular extracurricular activities for foreign students and staff. Currently, about 13% of all students come from abroad and the working groups in classes are usually mixed. Therefore, not only will you explore the Dutch culture, but also the cultures of your classmates. Your fellow students can be from any country in the world.

The campus in Nijmegen is considered to be the greenest and most beautiful in the Netherlands. Well-equipped study facilities and lecture rooms, state-of-the-art laboratories, libraries, computer networks and a modern sports centre are available to all students and staff.

The city of Nijmegen
Nijmegen is the oldest city in the Netherlands. It dates from Roman times when its name was Noviomagus (New Market). Today, it has some 170,000 inhabitants, of which about 25% is of international descent. Nijmegen is a clean, safe and friendly place with a rich social and cultural life.

Nijmegen is well worth visiting: plenty attractive shops, outdoor cafes (with a hundred different types of beer!) and restaurants, unique historic monuments, superb view over the busiest river of Europe and such lively traditions as the Street Theatre and the Concert Days; not to mention happenings such as the International Four Days Marches and the International Summer Festival.
