Mirjam van Aarle (EMBA17)

“I wanted to do the MBA programme to grow as a person and as a professional. It’s a new set of tools in my toolbox. I’m using my brain in a different way than I would at work. The people I meet at RSM are also a great return on investment.” Read more...

Miljan Stamenkovic (EMBA16)

"After nine years in IT-consulting, I wanted to refresh my business skills to get a better foundation. What struck me about RSM was the international character. I work in an international environment and wanted to study in this atmosphere as well." Read more...

Olivia Heerenveen (EMBA16)

“RSM has a high standard in the Netherlands and worldwide, and many people advised me to look into the RSM EMBA. I want to start my own business and I feel like this is the right basis to create a network and grow into doing this.” Read more

Mirjam Roos (EMBA16)

"I never expected to build such a professional and social network. You work hard, and you play hard. It’s not all about work and study, there’s enough time for jokes with classmates and professors. People are so diverse, from professional and cultural backgrounds. People are so diverse, from professional and cultural backgrounds." Read more

Oscar Carol (EMBA15)

“I wanted to learn about finance, strategy, accounting, economics, and HR. All these subjects that RSM’s EMBA offers are the missing pieces in my education that I need to become a leader.” Read more

RSM EMBA

Mayra Becegato (EMBA15)

"When people embark on this journey, they should expect to be really busy and committed for two years. Support from your partner and family is essential. Outside of work, I dedicate my time to the EMBA. You learn to focus on your goals and divide your time by planning it well.” Read more...

Mark Stoutjesdijk (EMBA15)

“I’m getting a broader perspective, professionally and personally. Without an MBA I'd probably practice radiology the rest of my career. With the MBA I’ll be able to make new career choices. It opens a lot of new possibilities for me.” Read more...

Liduina Hammer (EMBA15)

“I will be more confident. The RSM MBA is so much more than content-driven, it’s like I’m holding up a mirror. I’m learning different aspects of business, but most importantly, I’m growing and developing as a person. My company sees it as an investment to my and their own benefit.” Read more...

Roberta De Lorentiis (EMBA14)

"There’s a perfect match between what I learn and the possibility to incorporate it into practice. I see that subjects such as organisational behaviour are giving me a different perspective when I look at my own organisation." Read more...

Steven de Prekel (EMBA14)

"I often work around 60 hours per week and the EMBA takes up another 20 hours a week. It's a hard combination but somehow you just do it. Also thanks to the atmosphere among the students: we face the same challenges and we help each other through." Read more...

Daan van der Schroeff (EMBA14)

“One of the advantages of an MBA is that it develops a helicopter view on management issues. What I’ve learned in the MBA so far is way beyond what I could have learned in my own company.”
Read more...

Astrid Altena (EMBA14)

"The EMBA has a traditional way of looking at corporate concepts. The EMBA provides the structure to link innovation to this traditional structure. You need to look at the history to be able to look forward, and the EMBA provides me with that bridge."
Read more...

Martin Croft (EMBA13)

"The MBA helps you understand yourself; you really learn what motivates you, and why." Read more...

Narcisa Radvanszky (EMBA13)

"I am aware of how I communicate with others, and able to recognise if it is in line with what I want from the others. I also pay attention to my social network inside the company, now I have realised it is a fundamental asset for my work." Read more...

Clarissa Alfrink (EMBA13)

"The RSM Executive MBA helps me to gain an understanding of the larger picture, and has enabled me to not only enter, but also bring deep insights into discussions with our clients and company's management on how we can continue to be a frontrunner of our industry." Read more...

Tiemen van Bruggen (EMBA13)

"The natural next step would be to get more responsibilities, and my MBA will benefit me with extra knowledge. In time, it will enable me to change the course of my career; in general I feel it gives more choices and exposes you to lots of different fields of business." Read more...

Wing Lee (EMBA13)

The content of some of the RSM MBA courses has really changed my way of looking at business. Accounting is usually all about the figures, but the professors here have taught us to look beyond the figures and how to study them from a management perspective to understand what’s really going on in the business, rather than just creating a financial statement. Accounting at RSM isn’t boring at all. Read more...

Gustavo Scalabrin(EMBA12)

For my first two years in the Netherlands I was getting acquainted with my job, but I always had it in mind to do an MBA. I had considered studying full-time earlier in my career, but in recent years I established my role as a supply chain manager for Seara Meats, part of a very big group with 90,000 employees on five continents. Studying full time was not an option for me. Read more...

Ines Dekker (EMBA12)

At a certain moment, all the elements come together and you can position yourself to see every aspect of doing business. You see how it is integrated, and can consider everything from different views; from an employee’s perspective, from a business leader’s perspective, from that of a supplier or a competitor – and that’s really important. When the CEO can see the whole business from every angle, and from several viewpoints, it gives the company a competitive advantage.  Read more...

Johannes Bulling (EMBA11)

Lawyers can’t restrict themselves to legal issues, as we manage tasks within other company departments and need to know how business works. I decided to do EMBA six years ago when I was switching from legal studies into legal traineeship, after my first degree in law, in order to bridge legal work and business.  Read more...

Ana Crolina de Oliveira (EMBA11)

I wanted to pursue further education and at the same time work on the development of my soft skills so I can make more efficient use of my creativity in a corporate environment. The biggest development in my personal skills will be to influence and persuade people to understand key points and see the broader picture.  Read more...

Francesco Di Gregorio (EMBA11)

I want to be able to speak the language of our Chief Financial Officer and to raise the right questions at the right time. RSM - with its emphasis on developing leadership qualities - can give me the specific personal, financial and accounting tools that I will use to build my career.
Read more...

Mark Kuijpers (EMBA10)

I didn't specifically choose the EMBA for the international factor, I just knew that Erasmus University set a high standard in the MBA world. And as turns out, I have found it one of the most enlightening aspects of the programme. Read more...

Marco Henrique (EMBA10)

What I am really learning on the EMBA is how to connect. To be a good manager, you have to have all-around knowledge and all-around experience; the thing I’m learning here at RSM is really to connect my own nature, my way of being, and my social path with other important skills. Knowing how to structure a company or department, how to make a business plan, how to do statistical work and then put everything together in one piece – that’s what is needed to have success in executive positions.
