For years, the educational curriculum at the Nijmegen School of Management has been praised for the attention that it has paid to quality, supervision of its students, accessibility of lecturers and small-scale teaching. In order to create a stimulating study environment an active effort and commitment from students is needed. We expect to see this attitude shared by those who come here to study.


As a student-oriented academic school of management, NSM is able to nurture a close relationship with its students, and we pride ourselves on our student-focus. We share joint responsibility for the personal growth and development of our students. It is on the basis of this vision that we also regard our students not as mere ‘consumers of education’, but as individuals who play an active role in forming their own future.


The Institute for Management Research (IMR) is the multidisciplinary research institute of the NSM, conducting top-level research on the governance of complex social systems. IMR researchers strongly believe that complex societal issues can best be understood and addressed by combining the latest theories, empirical insights and methods from various disciplinary traditions.
