Leading Dutch business school aims to create its own EU

18 March 2006, 15:35

At least one student from each current and candidate member state of the European Union in the coming year. That is the ambition of the Nyenrode Business Universiteit, the Netherlands business school that celebrates its sixtieth anniversary this year.

At least one student from each current and candidate member state of the European Union in the coming year. That is the ambition of the Nyenrode Business Universiteit, the Netherlands business school that celebrates its sixtieth anniversary this year.

To reach that goal, Nyenrode has attracted sponsorship for no less than sixty scholarships for its prospective Master of Science in Management and International MBA students. A large number of these scholarships will be sponsored by business, ranging from Gucci to Xerox, as well as Nyenrode alumni. Obtaining this level of support from private sources for scholarships is believed to have set a record amongst universities in the Netherlands.

Nyenrode Business Universiteit, founded in 1946 by the Dutch business community and Dutch multinationals including Shell, KLM, Philips, Unilever and other multinationals, has recently succesfully shared its plans with numerous ambassadors and other representatives of European embassies in The Hague and was encouraged by the overwhelmingly positive reception.

As of now, all prospective candidates can obtain information about the scholarhips at the Nyenrode website. Students from all European countries can now apply for these scholarships. Among the scholarships is the Wim Kok scholarship for new EU members and candidate member states, named after the former Dutch prime minister and Nyenrode alumnus dr. Wim Kok.

Herman Bruggink, President of Nyenrode stated: “As one of the oldest European business schools, it is our ambition to show that we are strongly rooted in the European business community and show that we have a mission in the development of a European spirit of enterprise.

I strongly believe that by bringing business students together, we create a pan-European network of future business executives and entrepreneurs, that might help to further integrate the Union.“ The 13,000 members strong Nyenrode alumni network already includes alumni from most of the (candidate) member states. Together with the embassies, these alumni are engaged to help recruit young talent in their home countries. More information on the university page of Nyenrode.
