Can you afford RSM tuition fees without any scholarship?
If you can, it's a no brainer, take RSM.

RSM is one of the best economic schools in the world.
On par with London School of Economics.

You definitely get more exposure from RSM degree compare to Nyenrode.
Also, you can live in Rotterdam, it's probably the best city in holland to do business.

Go for RSM if you can afford the money. Nevertheless, keep in mind that if you are planning to work in holland do prepare to learn the language otherwise it will result in huge disappointment post MBA.

Also going to Nyenrode will be waste of time until you do not have any thing to do even you are getting scholarship

Hey mba_holland. Whatever you decide, it's great to have options! Having just gone through this process myself, let me share a couple thoughts...

I agree that RSM seems to be a bit more recognized outside of the Netherlands (which may or may not reflect on the strength of their program). Nyenrode, however, seems to command quite a bit of respect from within the Netherlands. Keep in mind that as an older, more established school many of the older generation of Dutch business leaders (and hiring managers) attended school there.

Ultimately, the choice of which school is "better" comes down to what you're looking for in an end result - like where you see yourself working post-MBA and in what industry. Trying not to sound biased, I'll admit that I decided on Nyenrode - only in part, by their scholarship program. Other factors were appealing, the Dutch flavor of the school, small town living, smaller class size, etc.

Good luck with your decision. Either way I think you'll wind up in a good place.

Lots of B-schools spend a fortune on state of the art buildings, shiny glass and exquisite facilities... Nyenrode has mother nature to thank for their stunning wintery wonderland...
