Erasmus University Rotterdam was founded on 8 November 1913 as the Netherlands School of Commerce (Nederlandsche Handels-Hoogeschool, or NHH) through the private industry with broad support from the business community of Rotterdam. In 1937, the school was identified as a higher educational institute with university status, delivering education in trade and economics as an academic discipline.

This resulted in a change of its name: the NHH became the NEH, or Netherlands School of Economics (Nederlandse Economische Hogeschool). The growing sophistication of society led in the 1960s to the arrival of the faculties of Law and Social Sciences, followed in later decades by Philosophy, History, Arts, and Business Administration.

Erasmus MC is the new name for the university medical center in Rotterdam, which is a union of the Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences and the University Hospital Rotterdam (Dijkzigt, Sophia, Daniel den Hoed clinic).

The Erasmus School of Health Policy and Management (ESHPM) forms a bridge between medicine and the health sciences on the one hand and social sciences on the other. The Institute for Medical Technology Assessment (iMTA) conducts health economic research in cooperation with both the Erasmus MC and the Erasmus School of Health Policy and Management.
