Nijmegen School of Management (NSM) of Radboud University Nijmegen has about 4500 undergraduate and graduate students and 180 fte scientific staff. NSM houses seven disciplines: Business Administration, Public Administration, Economics and Business Economics, Environmental Governance and Politics, Spatial Planning, Political Science and Human Geography. The mission of NSM is to provide high quality, innovative knowledge about how management and governance in organisations and societies affect the future-proof realisation of multiple values, including social, economic and ecological sustainability, safety, justice and freedom.
Based on its culture of unity in diversity, the school expresses its developmental direction in its motto: ‘Creating knowledge for society’. Society is calling for critical reflection, for new views and scientifically validated, often multidisciplinary, knowledge, which can also be used in analysing and solving societal problems. The motto inspires new bridges between disciplines and researchers. It underlines the importance of interaction with organisations and with society, and it uses the disciplinary diversity and breadth of the school as a source of innovation in academic thinking and acting.
The educational curriculum at NSM focusses on quality, care for our students, the accessibility of our lecturers and small-scale teaching. Faculty and staff are very committed and we create a stimulating study environment in which an active effort and commitment from students is needed. Radboud University is located on a beautiful green campus, close to the centre of the university town of Nijmegen, the oldest city in the Netherlands.
