Dear alumni,

Together with you we at RBS we were all looking forward to this coming Saturday: the day of your graduation ceremony at location Kralingse Zoom, Rotterdam.

Because your health and the health of all participants are our number one priority, we had organised this ceremony within the COVID-19 related safety regulations that were in force at the time. Unfortunately, in light of the even more stringent regulations taken by the Dutch government last Monday, we are forced to cancel this much anticipated event.

This is a huge disappointment for all those concerned. In the first place for you and your fellow graduates. We are proud of you and we had hoped to give you the graduation ceremony that you all deserve.

We will look into an alternative for this important event. As soon as a decision has been taken, we will inform you about this.

For now, I would like to offer you my sympathies for any inconvenience due to this last minute decision we had to take.

Thank you for your understanding.

Kind regards,


Mariska Wit
Dean Rotterdam Business School
