What is it about your MBA program that students love the most 

The collaborative environment that pushes them as professionals and individuals.

Tell us about one new course that has recently been added to your curriculum in the last year.  How do you see this influencing the current cohort?

Course Title: Digital Transformation 

Subject Matter:
Focuses on Big Data, its meaning and application across disciplines. With the internet of things and the ability to measure nearly everything that happens during the course of one’s day, we felt that today’s leaders needed a broad understanding of this field and how to utilize and interpret large data sets in executive decision making. Whether marketing, operations or finance, big data continues to be one of the largest drivers of the decision making process for modern executives.

 

If you could invite a fictional character to lecture in one of your courses, who would it be and what course would he/she teach?  Why?

John Keating, Dead Poet’s Society (played by Robin Williams)

Course: Personal Leadership Development
Subject Matter: This is a course that is already a major part of RSM’s curriculum. The “class” runs throughout the entire program from the very first week and includes personal coaching sessions, learning how to give and receive feedback and identify one’s emotional intelligence.
 

If there were to be a fictional character to lecture this course, it would be John Keating, the teacher from Dead Poet’s Society. In the movie, he challenged his students to live their lives on their own terms, which is applicable in an MBA program. While all students might receive the same courses and education, it is what each student does with that education after graduation. I think Keating would be a great person to really push RSM students to look beyond the obvious, to push beyond their boundaries – and ultimately find a way to make their mark in the world. 

Rotterdam School of Management

We teach candidates to be a force for positive change in the world. By approaching business with a global perspective and an entrepreneurial spirit, with a focus on collaboration and sustainability. We design every class in our MBA programs with these values in mind.

That’s the Dutch way of doing business. It keeps our faculty and graduates grounded, yet ahead of market shifts and the business landscape.

 We’re consistently one of Europe’s top-ranked business schools, but we don’t brag much about it. That’s another Dutch value—humility. We believe the success of our students, faculty, and alumni speaks loud enough.
