Rotterdam Business School (RBS) is an expert in international business and management study programmes. Founded in 1990, RBS has been part of Rotterdam University of Applied Sciences since 2002. Our English-taught Master programmes prepare students for successful careers in international business. Roughly 1/3 of our students are from over 40 countries, resulting in a constant exchange of cultures and experiences.

International Business begins here! The dynamic harbour city of Rotterdam offers the perfect location to embark on an international study career. Home to the largest port in Europe, Rotterdam has global trade and transport links. A major factor of our success is staying closely tuned to the pulse of the city. Because RBS wants to be closely connected to society and teach students to link their knowledge and skills to a sense of social responsibility, we closely cooperate with businesses and organisations. This benefits both the practical field as well as the quality of our education.

RBS is the international business faculty of Rotterdam University of Applied Sciences, one of the largest Universities of Higher Professional Education in the Netherlands.
