About the Summit

The RSM Leadership Summit does what Rotterdam School of Management, Erasmus University promises to do: to provide a lively platform where today’s top business practitioners, RSM’s top academics, our valued alumni, and corporate connections come together for a day of high-level networking and the sharing of knowledge. 

The first RSM Leadership Summit was held in 2009. Since then, the popularity of the event – which is timed to kick off the Alumni Reunion Weekend, and features the Distinguished Alumni Awards – has grown dramatically, attracting more and more members of the RSM community each year.

Prominent business leaders such as Frans van Houten (CEO Philips), Guus Dekkers (CIO Airbus), Søren Hansen (VP IKEA Group), Rene Hooft Graafland (CFO Heineken) and Chris Zook (Partner Bain & Company) have discussed the latest ideas, trends, and models impacting business leadership during past summits.
