The history of the school goes back to the year 1913 when the ‘Nederlandse Handelshoogeschool’ was established by several entrepreneurial Rotterdam businessmen with the aim to bring economics and business to a higher level by way of scientific methods. In 1939, the school changed names and became known as ‘Nederlandse Economische Hogeschool’ (Netherlands School of Economics).
The name change did not mean a change in the practice orientated way of teaching. Education and research remained its primary focus. By 1973, Netherlands School of Economics became Erasmus University Rotterdam, comprising the medical campus Hoboken and the social campus Woudestein. Even in those days, its aim was the establishment of a vigorous and flourishing University with a – nowadays – prominent Erasmus School of Economics, incorporating a wide range of economic expertise as well as keeping strong ties with the regional and international markets.
