The Nijmegen School of Management
(NSM) enables students, institutions and companies, societal actors and governments to play their part in a transformation towards sustainable societies.
As a faculty, NSM is committed to Radboud University's mission of contributing to a healthy, free world with equal opportunities for all. In the context of our 'Responsible governance for sustainable societies' mission, we address scientific and societal challenges from a good governance perspective. Our work focuses on the topics Beyond Economy, Climate, Inclusivity, Safety, and Democracy. By building, questioning and extending the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (UN SDG's), we acknowledge their interrelatedness and focus on a number of grand challenges within society. On topics such as inequality, gender, decent work and poverty, we contribute to innovation and sustainable growth. Furthermore, we address environmental and climate challenges, seeking to contribute towards resolving them.
At the Nijmegen School of Management, academic research and teaching are carried out in challenging educational programmes. These programmes are offered in Business Administration; Economics and Business Economics; Geography, Planning and Environment; Political Science; and Public Administration. Research in the above-mentioned domains is centred within the Institute for Management Research (IMR) and is carried out in interdisciplinary research groups: the Hot Spots. NSM currently has 350 FTE staff and approximately 5,000 students.
The Department of Business Administration
's mission is to educate future leaders in responsible organisation, offering an integral Business Administration programme focusing on societal problems and social processes in organisations. Our interdisciplinary Responsible Organisation research programme addresses the multiple values underlying responsibility, the conditions required to realise those values, and the interventions geared to the transition of organisations towards responsible organisations. We co-create knowledge with multiple stakeholders in the wider community to ensure the impact of our scholarly work. The Department is responsible for the BSc programmes in Business Administration (including a full track offered in English, and a track in International Business Administration) as well as eight specialisations within the MSc programme in Business Administration (all in English).
We want to get the best out of science, others and ourselves. Why? Because this is what the world around us desperately needs. Leading research and education make an indispensable contribution to a healthy, free world with equal opportunities for all. This is what unites the more than 24,000 students and 5,600 employees at Radboud University. And this requires even more talent, collaboration and lifelong learning. You have a part to play!
