Accreditation

What is accreditation?

Accreditation is an official process that a programme must go through in order to obtain a seal of approval. Most national governments have an official accreditation process which ensures that programmes meet specifically defined quality standards. In the Netherlands the national accrediting body is the Accreditation Organisation of The Netherlands and Flanders (NVAO). All of the programmes offered by RSM have been accredited by the NVAO.

Are RSM degrees internationally recognised?

The degrees conferred by Rotterdam School of Management, Erasmus University: Bachelor of Science (BSc), Master of Science (MSc) and PhD are part of the framework of the so-called Bologna declaration and should therefore be fully recognised by all countries who have signed the declaration. The combination of a recognised degree, triple accreditation, and the strong brand image of the school (which is known all over the globe) has turned out to be a great asset for our graduates, enabling them to acquire good positions in the corporate world and giving them access to graduate programmes of the top tier of business schools all over the world.
