History of Erasmus School of Economics

Erasmus School of Economics is the oldest, and with nearly 7,000 economics and econometrics students and 400 faculty and staff members, the largest school in the Netherlands. The history of Erasmus School of Economics goes back to the year 1913 when the ‘Nederlandse Handelshoogeschool’ was established by a group of entrepreneurial Rotterdam businessmen, with the aim to bring economics and business to a higher level by way of scientific methods. Over the years, Erasmus School of Economics has evolved into an internationally renowned institute. The pursuit of academic and intellectual excellence is at the heart of all the school’s research programmes: Economics, Applied Economics, Econometrics and Management Science, Finance and Accounting and Marketing. The research activities are facilitated by two research institutes accredited by the Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts & Science.
