Erasmus University Rotterdam is located in the second largest city of the Netherlands and is best known for its leading research and teaching in economics. Furthermore it is also known for its growing and enriching international student milieu.


Erasmus University Rotterdam has seven faculties and focuses on four areas of expertise:

  1. Health – Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences/Erasmus MC and Erasmus School of Health Policy & Management (ESHPM)
  2. Wealth – Erasmus School of Economics and Rotterdam School of Management, Erasmus University
  3. Governance – Erasmus School of Law and Faculty of Social Sciences
  4. Culture – Erasmus School of History, Culture and Communication, Faculty of Social Sciences and Faculty of Philosophy


The Erasmus School of Health Policy & Management (ESHPM) of Erasmus University Rotterdam is responsible for the European Master in Health Economics and Management at EUR.

At ESHPM, research and educational activities are closely intertwined. Knowledge and experiences of various scientific disciplines such as economics, law, social-medical sciences, organisational science and public administration are brought together and applied to the health care sector. This multidisciplinary approach to education and research is unique.

Internationalisation is highly valued at ESHPM. The number of students, teachers and researchers from abroad has risen significantly over the past years and it certainly seems as if this trend will carry on. It is obvious that this broad international orientation has enriched ESHPM’s study programmes.
