From September 2017 Nyenrode Business Universiteit will run its full-time MBA program from central Amsterdam, in order to better integrate students with the European business community. The university’s flagship programme will be located at De Vijf Keijzers, a complex situated on the iconic Emperors Canal (Keizersgracht).
Starting in 2017, Nyenrode Business Universiteit is to offer study courses in Amsterdam. The International MBA will be moving from the Breukelen-based campus to De Vijf Keizers, a building complex on Keizersgracht in Amsterdam, where Nyenrode New Business School (NNBS) is also located. Over the coming years, the Amsterdam site will be transformed into an annex of Nyenrode Business Universiteit, where other degree programs will also be offered. In the years ahead, for the Bachelor in Business studies, an expansion in BSc in Business Administration is anticipated. For the BBA New Business & Bachelor of Arts (Hons) in Amsterdam, there will be a student stop as from 2018.

When it comes to the business sector, digital transformation is not just a choice, but rather a necessity. That is what Dr. Ir. Wolter Lemstra reiterates, the core professor of Digital Strategy and Transformation – a course of the Modular Executive MBA in Business & IT. Lemstra: “At one point or another, every organization will have to face digital transformation. So the best approach is to be adequately prepared.”
All the complaints about alleged irregularities during a Nyenrode New Business School (NNBS) study trip to China in May of this year, have been found to be unjustified by an independent commission of inquiry chaired by Prof. Dr. Emile Kolthoff. The findings of the inquiry entirely clear NNBS director Anton Busselman and the two co-accused teachers.
The eagerly anticipated move to a new and exciting location in the heart of Amsterdam’s creative and entrepreneurial centre is an ambition waiting to be fulfilled. Comprising of 2,750m² of study space, this incredible building will inspire generations of students and staff who have made the decision to be part of Nyenrode New Business School’s future.
A date has been set for Nyenrode New Business School’s eagerly anticipated move from the Weteringschans 165 to the creative heartbeat of the city—Keizersgracht 279-287. Associate-Dean Gert Meijer says: “Although we would have liked to have started this academic year at The 5 Keizers, at NNBS we are very optimistic the move will take place at the beginning of 2014.”
