RSM is committed to developing close partnerships with companies with the joint aim of creating and acquiring new talents and enhanced knowledge within the fields of research and education. The spirit of the partnership comes from the fact that both parties wish to benefit from each other’s strengths in order to reduce the distance between the academic world and the business world, thus allowing both parties to operate more effectively within their own field. Parties can envisage sufficient opportunities for creating added value for the other.

Some corporate partners have sponsored research chairs or research centres at the School; some have worked with us on scholarships for our students; others have sponsored our MSc Honours Class. Meanwhile not all being formalised corporate partners, we work together with more than six hundred national and international companies on a yearly basis. Company contacts that result from hiring our students through our RSM Job Board or executing projects with our students or coming on campus to present their organisation to RSM students.

Rotterdam School of Management, Erasmus University resides in the centre of a network that links us to every aspect of global business.
