Clear focus

EUR is known as the University of ambitious thinkers and doers. Our cutting-edge profile is characterised by extensive cooperation and our focus on a select number of disciplines. Our academic teaching and research focuses on four areas:

  • Health: from molecule to man to society
  • Wealth: sustainable economic growth
  • Governance: the organisation of companies and society
  • Culture; media, happiness and identity in modern urban society

Profile and focus ensure that Erasmus University attracts special people from all parts of the world. As a result the university is a melting pot of talents of all ages with different nationalities and cultural backgrounds. This diversity is a strength and the basis for innovation and enables the university - in the spirit of our namesake Desiderius Erasmus - to train their students to be real global citizens.
