Nijmegen School of Management
The Nijmegen School of Management (NSM) is an academic centre of research and higher education within Radboud University, focusing on institutional and managerial issues concerning complex organisations in both the public and private domain. It covers seven disciplines: Business Administration, Public Administration, Political Science, Economics and Business Economics, Social and Political Sciences of the Environment, Human Geography, and Spatial Planning. The NSM strives for a multidisciplinary approach whenever possible. The NSM employs 260 FTEs, of whom 75% are academics. The NSM currently has approximately 4,200 students.
Spatial planning research and education in Nijmegen aims at discovering potentials and opportunities, acknowledging difference and ambiguity, and providing pathways to urban futures. In that spirit, the group follows three main objectives: educating future professionals and academics for daily practice of planning; offering advice to stakeholders and the general public on actual planning issues; improving the knowledge about and the knowledge for planning practice through academic and applied research. The group does so in three main interrelated fields: land and property development; water and climate governance, and mobility and spatial planning. Core theoretical perspectives focus on governance and institutional dimensions. The research of the planning group covers a broad set of fields relevant to mobility questions, spatial development and sustainability, including new mobility concepts, issues of justice and transport, transit-oriented development, and urban futures. We work with diverse qualitative and quantitative methods, including gaming, group model building or GIS and map-based techniques, and have access to up-to-date hardware and tools (e.g. map tables). The group works in international, national, regional and local projects, networks and contexts, and has a very good track record of research projects. The Faculty supports a number of multidisciplinary research groups focusing on responsible decision making, governance and innovation in social services, innovation and entrepreneurship, sustainable places and practices, local-global divides and connections, and European policy and legislation. Many of these themes include topics or address challenges related to mobility and transport and offer the opportunity for multi- and inter-disciplinary research projects.
