What can I study? 

Exchange students can choose from our 2nd and 3rd year bachelor courses. Nyenrode currently does not offer an exchange opportunity in our Master of Science in Management and MBA programs.  

Nyenrode offers an academic program focusing on practical relevance in today’s business world in which you can develop your hard and soft skills. 

Improve your communication skills as well as your personal development with our PLDJ (Personal Leadership Development Journey) course.
