Work environment
The Nijmegen School of Management (NSM) of Radboud University Nijmegen in 
the Netherlands is an academic centre of research and higher learning, 
focusing on institutional complexity and managerial issues within and 
between organizations in both the public and private domain. There are seven 
focus areas within the NSM: Business Administration, Public Administration, 
Political Science, Economics, Social and Political Sciences of the 
Environment, Human Geography, and Spatial Planning. The NSM strives for a 
multidisciplinary approach whenever possible. Altogether, the NSM employs 
220 full-time staff, of whom 75% are academics. The NSM has about 3,000 

The Department of Business Administration is one of the four departments 
within the NSM and consists of five chairs: Strategy, Marketing, 
Organizational Design and Development, Strategic Human Resources Management 
and Research Methods. What sets the Nijmegen curriculum in Business 
Administration apart is that it takes a Responsible Organization perspective 
on Business Administration. This focus reflects a broader view concerning 
the developments within the discipline of management itself. In the 
curriculum, the standard course listing is therefore combined with classes 
that put Business Administration within an ethical, historical, 
philosophical, institutional, and methodological perspective. As such, the 
curriculum reflects the research of the Department of Business 
Administration, which is also characterized by a multidisciplinary approach. 
Research within the Strategy group can be divided into three core generic 
themes: stakeholder management and strategic decision making; strategic 
responses to institutional complexity; and strategic reorientation and 
organization restructuring.
