Radboud University Nijmegen

Strategically located in Europe, Radboud University Nijmegen is one of the leading academic communities in the Netherlands. A place with a personal touch, where top-flight education and research take place on a beautiful green campus in modern buildings with state-of-art facilities.

Nijmegen School of Management

The Nijmegen School of Management (NSM) is an academic centre of research and higher learning, focusing on institutional and managerial issues within complex organizations in both the public and private domain. There are seven focus areas within the NSM: Business Administration, Public Administration, Political Science, Economics, Social and Political Sciences of the Environment, Human Geography, and Spatial Planning. The NSM strives for a multi-disciplinary approach whenever possible. Altogether, the NSM employs 220 full-time staff, of whom 75% are academics. The NSM has about 3,000 students.

The Department of Economics is one of the four departments within the NSM and consists of four chairs: Economic Theory and Policy, International Economics, Finance, and Accounting. What sets the Nijmegen curriculum in Economics apart is that it takes a view labeled as “Economics+”. This focus reflects a broader view concerning the developments within the discipline of economics itself. That is, economics is seen as pluralistic, which enables the combination of various, different perspectives. Consequently, in the curriculum the standard course listing is combined with classes that put economics within an ethical, historical, philosophical, institutional, and methodological perspective. As such, it reflects the research of the Department of Economics, which is also characterized by a multidisciplinary approach.
