Is financial aid available?

No. We do not offer scholarships for our executive programmes. However study costs are a personal deduction and can be used if you have  taxable income in the Netherlands. The personal deduction can also be allocated to your tax partner. More information visit the Belastingdienst website.

Am I eligible for VAT-free invoicing?

Our executive education programmes are, in principle, all subject to 21% VAT* but exemption from VAT is possible in some cases.

You are eligible for VAT-free invoicing if you:

  • Follow the programme as a private person
  • Work at an organisation that does not pay VAT (e.g. a government agency, bank, insurer, cultural, health or non-profit organisation)

In these instances, it is not possible to reclaim VAT, so we recommend to use a VAT-free option. To cover our administrative and purchasing costs (which are not VAT-exempted), a non-refundable surcharge of 10% is added to the VAT-free price.

Next steps

If you are eligible for exemption from VAT and would like to make use of it, please mention "VAT-free invoicing" in the comments section when registering for your programme.

* All prices exclude VAT (‘BTW’ in the Netherlands). The percentage of VAT is subject to change according to Dutch law.

Are there any tuition discounts?

Yes. Alumni from RSM and Erasmus University Rotterdam receive a 10% discount. RSM alumni are students who have completed either a Bachelor of Science, Master of Science, PhD or one executive education programme of more than 40 hours. Participants of open programmes of less than 40 hours do not receive a discount. Companies sponsoring several participants may also be offered a special price.
