100 years Erasmus University

Based around the theme ‘100 years Impact’, Erasmus University Rotterdam celebrated its centenary in the 2013-2014 academic year. What started a hundred years ago as the Nederlandsche Handels-Hoogeschool (Netherlands School of Commerce) is now a flourishing international university with over 23,000 students. A series of Centennial events were organised during the course of the academic year.

The centennial celebration officially ended on 1 September 2014 in the presence of His Majesty King Willem-Alexander.
