Nyenrode beeld The 2018 FT European Business School Ranking has been published

The 2018 FT European Business School Ranking has been published

Education |  December 3 2018
The 2018 Financial Times European Business School Ranking has been published. As expected, Nyenrode Business Universiteit has slipped in the overall ranking of European Business Schools, falling from 38th place in 2017 to 51st out of 95 institutions in 2018. The university believes the reason for this result is clear: it is a consequence of a one-time lack of responses from graduates in 2014, which factors into the ranking.

Scientific validation of audit methodology in accountancy needed

Research |  November 28 2018
“The field of Auditing & Assurance is about people and trust”, says Prof. Dr. Joost van Buuren. However, according to Van Buuren, the field has not been innovative enough in recent years and is failing to adequately fulfill users’ wishes. Van Buuren therefore calls upon the sector to develop a new active approach: one in which innovation is aimed at meeting users’ needs and boosting their trust in the accountant through scientific validation of audit methodology. Van Buuren: “Accountants must start thinking differently and seize opportunities with an open mind in order to increase the relevance of the accounting position.”
