Rotterdam Business School

Rotterdam Business School (RBS) is the international business school of Rotterdam University of Applied Sciences. Over 2,500 students are currently enrolled in our English-taught Bachelor and Master programmes.



Just like in the world of business, our focus is fully international. Over 50 nationalities are represented amongst our student population. We work closely with partners in the business and education communities in Europe, Asia, Africa and the Americas to offer our students the global outlook and experience they need to succeed.


Education, business placements, exchange programmes and practical research projects; they are all aimed at preparing our students for a career in international business. Real-life business cases provided by international companies are at the heart of many courses. They challenge our students to learn to act quickly and decisively, and to base their decisions on growing experience and healthy reflection.
