Passionate about business management, investment, innovation, and sustainability and having graduated from an MBA programme in a top 100 business school in the world, Nikki enjoyed her time studying abroad. Being an International student, she gained valuable lessons and a humble view in life. She grew huge respect for the values of integrity, stewardship, courage, and compassion and she now represents primary to secondary levels of education.

“In Eerde we offer a high-quality international education, in small classes with individual attention. As we have such small classes, each student receives specific individual attention. Not only if they need extra support due to subject difficulties, but also for students who need more of a challenge.” There are more than twenty nationalities at Eerde International Boarding School with English as the official language. The castle is situated in a beautiful estate managed by Natuurmonumenten.
