Over the past 50 years, Rotterdam School of Management, Erasmus University (RSM) has firmly established its reputation as one of Europe’s most international and innovative business schools. Founded by business, our long history with international companies has become a reciprocal and supportive relationship.
We treasure this engagement because businesses deliver interaction with our students, either through recruitment, through study projects on real-life business challenges or through providing internships. They also help us to provide relevant and timely executive and organisational development programmes, and give us insights as well as valorisation for our cutting-edge research projects.
RSM offers a distinct intellectual culture and is committed to the UN’s 17 Sustainable Development Goals as a framework for its mission to be a force for positive change in the world. We aim to improve the practice of business and management through our research, our education, and our collaboration and engagement with our alumni and corporate and societal partners.
It’s in our culture to consider how to make the change happen; it's in our forward thinking I WILL initiative it’s in the curriculum as a goal-setting module for students to think about the future they want for themselves, and it’s in the way we use the United Nations’ 17 Sustainable Development Goals as a reference framework.
"The more people I get on board that are able to 3D print hands and to fund this, the more children we can help.”
"We are a fashion company because we sell clothes, but our main aim and motivation is that we make impact in places where it’s needed the most."
"I would love it if some projects are still 'alive' by the end of this academic year and that they continue working on it or pass it on to next year's ambassadors."
The Positive Change Initiative is involved in organising several activities. Learn all about the events we host, and about previous editions of these events.
