The Nijmegen School of Management (NSM) is an academic centre of research and higher education, focusing on institutional and managerial issues within complex organisations in both the public and private domains. There are seven disciplines within NSM: Business Administration, Public Administration, Political Science, Economics and Business Economics, Social and Political Sciences of the Environment, Human Geography, and Spatial Planning. NSM strives for a multidisciplinary approach where possible. Altogether, NSM employs 280 FTEs, 75% of whom are academics. 

Both Bachelor's and Master's degree programmes are offered in the seven focus areas, which are organised in the NSM's educational institute. The educational programme is characterised by small-scale teaching and provides a stimulating learning environment with an emphasis on the development of academic skills. NSM currently has approximately 4,800 students. NSM's research activities fall under the responsibility of the interdisciplinary Institute for Management Research (IMR). Under the motto 'Creating knowledge for society', IMR focuses on academic research into the development, design and effectiveness of the public and private structures that regulate, govern or manage human interactions.

The Department of Economics and Business Economics consists of four chair groups: Economic Theory and Policy, International Economics, Finance, and Business Economics. The department is responsible for the development and quality of the Bachelor's and Master's programmes in Economics, and also for the courses in Economics in the other study programmes offered by the faculty. What sets the Nijmegen curriculum in Economics apart is that it is characterised by a multidisciplinary approach, whereby, in addition to the economics discipline, inspiration is also sought from other areas.
