In the past three years, Dutch scale-up firms created 70,000 jobs despite declining national employment. Entrepreneurship is valued in Dutch society, but it's uncommon, involving less than 10% of adults. Rotterdam School of Management boasts high-quality knowledge from S&E scholars, equipping emerging businesses with unique tools for a competitive edge.

This entrepreneurial approach isn't limited to start-ups; it's vital for established firms too. Focussing on "ambidexterity" - balancing established and innovative business models to adapt to a changing global economy - attracts major Dutch companies. RSM's academic research informs tailored executive education programs, facilitating the adoption of ambidexterity techniques. This showcases RSM's ability to bridge academic knowledge with practical business applications, benefiting society as a whole.
