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.
In a repeat to last year’s achievement, the Bachelor of Science (BSc) in Business Administration has once again been rated as the best program in the Netherlands in the category of International Business in the “Keuzegids Universiteiten 2019” (a selection guide for universities). The program far outperformed all other bachelor programs in the Economics & Business sector of the guide. With an overall score of 94 points out of 100, the BSc in Business Administration is the only program in the International Business category to earn the designation of “top program”, even tying for second place among all bachelor programs in the Netherlands.
Entrepreneurial finance is a fast-growing phenomenon in this day and age. New forms of financing are developing at a rapid pace with the changing European economy and the increasing number of startups and scale-ups. What is lagging behind in these developments is the literature. Until now, that is. The book “Entrepreneurial Finance: The Art and Science of Growing Ventures” is a new standard work, textbook and research book all in one, drawing enthusiastic responses from numerous students, lecturers and critics.

‘In the past sports governance didn’t appeal to me all that much,’ says Esther Vergeer. The seven-time Paralympic tennis champion brought her sports career to an end in 2013, after topping the world rankings in wheelchair tennis for an unbroken run of 14 years. But she hasn’t been taking it easy since then. Besides her involvement in the Esther Vergeer Foundation, which she set up in 2004, she has been tournament director of the AMRO World Wheelchair Tennis Tournament in Rotterdam.
