Nyenrode Business Universiteit
Nyenrode Business Universiteit, founded in 1946, is the only private university in the Netherlands. It builds on the motto ‘for and by business’.
Situated on a 13th century estate, Nyenrode has a unique atmosphere to work and study.
Nyenrode is the only private university in the Netherlands. In 1946, captains of industry from leading Dutch corporations as KLM, Shell, Unilever, Philips and Akzo, took the initiative to start an institute where an action-inclined, internationally focused generation of new business leaders would be educated. Main goal was to rebuild the economic position of the Netherlands and Dutch enterprises after WWII.
The Nijenrode estate is dominated by the thirteenth-century castle estate. Situated in a park-like estate and surrounded by a moat, the castle is a true eye-catcher. The Nijenrode estate is known for its beautiful landscape architecture. Since 2001, the estate has enjoyed the protection provided by the Historic Buildings and Ancient Monuments Act.
