Nyenrode Business Universiteit regards the shaping of responsible students, managers and professionals as our duty towards society. Additionally, in our daily operations we prioritize corporate social responsibility.
Nyenrode is a member of the UN PRME (United Nations' Principles for Responsible Management Education), thus underscoring the principles the UN have set for responsible management education. These principles largely overlap our core values Leadership, Entrepreneurship and Stewardship.
The annual Henk van Luijk Lecture is an initiative from the Dutch Small and Medium-sized Enterprise Association (MVO Nederland), Nyenrode Business Universiteit, and the Confederation of Netherlands Industry and Employers (VNO-NCW) to boost the subject of corporate ethics. The lecture was first held in 2010 in memory of the late Henk van Luijk, the patriarch of Dutch corporate ethics. The lecture is meant for relations of the organizing parties and others interested in the subject of business ethics.
