Nyenrode Business UniversiteitNyenrode Business Universiteit, founded in 1946, is the only private university in the Netherlands. It builds on the motto 'for and by business'.
Our reason to be
Nyenrode is the only private university in the Netherlands. In 1946, captains of industry from leading Dutch corporations as KLM, Shell, Unilever, Philips and Akzo, took the initiative to start an institute where an action-inclined, internationally focused generation of new business leaders would be educated. Main goal was to the rebuild the economic position of the Netherlands and Dutch enterprises after WWII.
Ambition and scope
Nyenrode's ambition is to deepen the knowledge of our internationally oriented, carefully selected students towards sustainable leaders, robust accountants and agile and creative entrepreneurs. We offer graduate level programs in the fields of general management, accountancy and controlling. On top of that, our broad spectrum of executive education programs attracts a wide range of participants.
