Nyenrode students score highest among Dutch students in emotional intelligence (EQ). This is shown by results from the Q-Master test by Nobiles magazine.

In the election for the best student in the Netherlands, average scores for EQ and IQ were set for universities and colleges of higher education. Nyenrode came in fourth in the combined ranking for EQ and IQ scores behind the three technical universities.

Professor Dr Jack van der Veen, Associate Dean and Nyenrode Program Director Degree Programs: “These results again go to show the reasoning behind our selection at the gate, in which emotional intelligence weighs heavily.

The job market is not waiting for graduates with just a high IQ and no social or emotional intelligence. As a business university, we are not only responsible for an academic transfer of knowledge, but also for the formation of young entrepreneurs who offer direct added value in business and in government.”

Over 10,000 serious candidates took part in the election for the best student in the Netherlands. The final was held on February 24 at Nyenrode Business Universiteit in Breukelen.

The winner was Anna Joke Breumer, an architecture student at the TU Delft. She won an around the world ticket and a Nyenrode scholarship worth Ђ10,000. Top Nyenrode student was Teun den Blanken who came in fifth overall.
