Science with Purpose

School of Business and Economics

For 75 years the School of Business and Economics (SBE) has stood for innovative and ambitious education and research. With contemporary knowledge in economics and business administration, we have always been able to respond effectively to the economic and social challenges facing our world. Past, present and future.

In a world where business, society and environment are closely related, and interact at an increasingly global scale, it is essential that people and organizations have profound knowledge of the mechanisms of economics and business. But also understand and embrace individual and cultural differences.

As a firm believer in independence, we are an academic institute that nurtures a stimulating and inclusive environment. Our differences help us to make decisions which have a positive impact on the world, society, and the lives of others. That is why we want to be the faculty for ambitious people and organizations who believe that collaborating, transparency and social responsibility are the only way forward. For science, business and humanity/ society.

We want our students, scientists and employees to learn, to enrich and develop their knowledge, to maximize their potential and to realize their ambition and find their purpose. We support everyone to shape the future responsibly, as academics, professionals and citizens of society.

We do this with one common goal: Science with Purpose.

Research at SBE

Partly due to the corona crisis, digitalisation has accelerated everywhere in society. What consequences does this have for vulnerable Amsterdam residents who do not always have the right skills or resources? Professor of Organisation Theory Elco van Burg researched the cooperation between aid organisations during lockdowns and its impact on homeless people, refugees and people with psychiatric disorders, among others.
