Consistently ranked among the top business schools in the world, the Rotterdam School of Management, Erasmus University is renowned for its international character and innovative approach. The RSM portfolio of MBA programmes include the International Full-time MBA Programme, part-time weekend Executive MBA (EMBA) Programme and the Global Executive OneMBA Programme.
Our MBA programme offers premium academic quality, taught by an international cohort of top faculty, and with a dual emphasis on intellectual challenge combined with extensive practical application.
You can discover and develop your unique competencies for leadership in an international programme that challenges you on every level: how you view the world, analyse issues, devise solutions, and implement your ideas.
RSMs International Full-time MBA offers global, industry, ecucational and gender diversity as a group of experienced participants in a collaborative learning environment designed to transform early business experience and ambition into management knowledge, skills and leadership abilities.
At RSM, challenge is a two-way concept. Our MBAs are challenged intellectually by the highest-level academic content and under the direction of the sharpest business thinkers. They also challenge us: questioning facts as they are presented and critically-assessing assumptions. And most of all, they challenge themselves: confronting their limitations, pushing past boundaries, and identifying the drivers behind their own behaviour.
With our MBA programme, leadership is something that you apply in practice. We offer exceptional opportunities for you to apply your leadership skills both in and outside the classroom, from interaction with industry leaders and real consultancy projects (living management), to international travel and participation in clubs and student-managed conferences. Students also demonstrate social commitment through activities such as a charity for Indonesian street children and a contribution to sustainability and environmental outcomes for the University and for themselves.
One of the reasons our programme stands out is because of its very open, cooperative school environment. Diversity is not only valued, it is sought, encouraged and developed. You will find the space to explore new ways of thinking, inspiration to challenge ideas and break the status quo, and ultimately, the scope to develop your own potential as a future leader.
Students at Rotterdam School of Management, Erasmus University epitomise diversity in its broadest and most positive sense. Those studying the Full-time MBA come from forty or more countries, bringing with them not just cultural diversity, but also diversity in terms of industry, educational background, experience and gender.
With an average age of 28 to 29, and a minimum of two years of work experience (the average is generally four to six years), these are people who have demonstrated their drive and ability to succeed. As international managers they thrive on the diversity that is a major attribute of the programme.
This diversity is produces a strong group culture that sees each member of the course supporting the educational and other needs of their colleagues. Further strength is imparted by an embedded programme of Professional Leadership Development that takes the individual student beyond the educational experience, forming both business and community leaders.
The Executive MBA programmes - Executive MBA (EMBA); and Global Executive OneMBA - are for the more experienced manager looking for further career flexibility and movement. The students in these programmes are generally older (30's) and have considerable experience (up 12 years or more).
These programmes also develop a very strong group culture, providing firm foundations for international and professions networks that endure.
