The selection guide states that the Nyenrode program is ‘fantastic for professional preparation’: ‘The format in which students work four days and study one day is clearly a success.’ Marjolijn Oussoren, Head of Program for the Bsc in Accountancy, is ‘very happy’ with this rating: ‘It’s great that we can consistently keep the quality of the program at this high level for our students, and that this is also appreciated.’
