As a part of Nyenrode Corporate Governance Institutes strategic focus on 'Making Markets Fit for Purpose', Nyenrode Business Universiteit and NewForesight Consultancy facilitated an author workshop to write a book on 'Changing the Game: How to Achieve Sustainable Market Transformation'.
The outcomes of research on innovation in family businesses debunk the myth that family businesses are not innovative. This is according to the research report by Prof. Dr. Roberto Flören, professor of family businesses at Nyenrode Business Universiteit, in collaboration with ING and NPM Capital. Family business owners are more supportive of innovation policy than owners of non-family businesses. At the same time, the study shows that when more financial resources are available, nearly one-third of family businesses will be more innovative. Family businesses are therefore on par with other types of businesses when it comes to innovation.
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).
