Niki Eerd

Niki is passionate about business management, investment, innovation, and sustainability. She graduated on an MBA program from a Top 100 business school in the world and enjoyed her time studying abroad. Being an International student herself, it gave her valuable lessons and a humble view in life. She grew huge respect for the values of integrity, stewardship, courage, and compassion. Niki now represents primary to secondary levels of education. In Eerde we offer high-quality international education. In small classes with individual attention because we have such small classes, there is specific individual attention for all students. Not only if they need extra support because they have difficulties with subjects, but also for students who need more of a challenge. There are more than twenty nationalities at Eerde International Boarding School, English is the official language. The castle is situated in a beautiful estate managed by Natuurmonumenten.
