As part of this, Nyenrode is inviting global talents to join the discussion during the ‘Nyenrode MBA European Weekend’. This intensive event will take place between June 28 and 30, 2013 at the beautiful 13th century estate of Nyenrode Business Universiteit, Breukelen, in the Netherlands.


Founded in 1946, Nyenrode has always been an active participant in the global discussion, not only because of the location and history of the university, but also the significant role its plays linking academic research with professional expertise, says Shaoqing Wang, manager of International and Executive MBA program at Nyenrode.

‘We are very proud to have introduced a separate ‘European Module’ in our International MBA program, which provides our students with the awareness, knowledge, insight and skills they need to optimize the effectiveness of individuals, and thus their organizations, in a European context,’ Wang says.

‘Our students have benefited from the combination of interactive lectures, action learning, interviews, scenario analysis and simulation games as well as company and institutional visits in Brussels.’
