Erasmus University Rotterdam is a public research university situated in Rotterdam, Netherlands. It is named after Desiderius Erasmus Roterodamus, a 15th-century humanist and theologian.
Erasmus MC is the biggest and one of the foremost academic medical centers and trauma centers in the Netherlands, whereas its economics and business school, Erasmus School of Economics, and Rotterdam School of Management are well known in Europe and beyond.
Erasmus University Rotterdam currently has been placed in the top 100 universities in the world by four prominent international ranking tables. In 2017, the university was rated by Times Higher Education as 69th in the world, with its business & economics as 17th, and clinical health as 42nd in the world, and was rated among the top ten business schools in Europe by the Financial Times.
In 2015, the university was rated by Times Higher Education as 20th in Europe and 72nd in the world, with its social sciences as 40th, and clinical health as 35th in the world.
Erasmus University Rotterdam was established on 8 November 1913 as the Netherlands School of Commerce (Nederlandsche Handels-Hoogeschool, or NHH) through a private initiative with broad support from the business community of Rotterdam.
The school was recognized in 1937 as a higher educational institute with university status, providing education in commerce and economics as an academic discipline.
However, this resulted in a change of its name: the NHH became the NEH, or Netherlands School of Economics (Nederlandse Economische Hogeschool). The growing complexity of society led in the 1960s to the arrival of the faculties of Law and Social Sciences, followed in later decades by Philosophy, History, Arts, and Business Administration.
The economics faculty is, according to the QS World University Rankings 2018, the 9th best in Europe (the UK included) and 50th in the world in economics and econometrics, and 37th in the world in accounting and finance (10th best in Europe).
Times Higher Education World University Rankings rates Erasmus University 1st in the Netherlands, 7th in Europe, and 28th in the world for the subject of Economics and Business in 2020.
Moreover, the Shanghai Jiao Tong University Academic Ranking of World Universities published in 2018, lists Erasmus School of Economics as 9th in Europe and 32nd in the world in the fields of economics and business.
According to US News 2022, Erasmus University Rotterdam is rated 1st in the Netherlands, 2nd in Europe, and 10th in the world for Economics and Business.
