2014 WO Monitor

You completed your education at Erasmus University Rotterdam between 2008-2010. We are interested to know about your experience of the employment market since then, and how you now look back on your University education.

Erasmus University Rotterdam is therefore participating in a Dutch study, the WO Monitor, a study into higher academic education in the Netherlands. The WO Monitor charts the entry to the employment market of graduates from Dutch universities and, retrospectively, also analyses the quality of your study and its compatibility with the employment market.

Which bank survives a crisis?

Tuesday, 14 October 2014

During the recent financial crisis some banks collapsed but others did not. Why do some banks fail during a crisis, while others get off without a scratch? New research by PhD candidate Philip Fliers of Rotterdam School of Management, Erasmus University (RSM), uses Dutch economic history to find out. Fliers suggests that factors like age, size, debt ratios, branch penetration and internationalisation were all crucial for determining whether or not banks survived the Dutch banking crisis of the 1920s, the country’s last big banking crisis before that of 2008. Fliers argues that this historical crisis holds potentially very important lessons for policymakers today.
