Education a Major Export for the Netherlands but it Needs to Import Young Talent

Higher education is one of the Netherlands’s major exports, but it has to import young talent and that is why educators like Wittenborg University of Applied Sciences are so important. This is according to Paul Zevenbergen, an executive board member of the Dutch-Flemish Accreditation Organization NVAO, who was the guest speaker at Wittenborg’s 30th anniversary gala last Friday.

History of Wittenborg

Wittenborg University of Applied Sciences was founded in 1987  by Dutch entrepreneur Williem H Nijkamp. The school quickly grew into an expertise centre for Banking and Insurance and Real Estate Management, providing these industries in the Netherlands with hundreds of graduates.

In 2002 Wittenborg University partnered with BTC, an international consultancy specialised in corporate training programmes (part of Birdsalls Limited). The business school started developing its international English taught business programmes, gaining state accreditation for its International Business Administration programmes from the world-wide recognised Netherlands and Flemish Accreditation Organisation (NVAO) in 2006.
