Duisenberg School of Finance was established in 2008 with the assistance of notable Dutch Universities, Holland Financial Center and a number of financial Industry Leaders.
Duisenberg school of finance adopted its name from the Dutch economist, financier and politician, the so-called ‘father of the Euro’ and first president of the European Central Bank, Willem Frederik Duisenberg, more commonly known as Wim Duisenberg (1935–2005).
DSF is a private institute set up in a reaction to the recent financial crisis by leaders within the finance industry ING Bank, ABN Amro, RBS, NYSE Euronext, Aegon, Deloitte, APG, De Nederlandsche Bank, SNS Reaal, Houthoff Buruma etc.) and top Dutch Universities RSM Erasmus University, University of Amsterdam, Tilburg University, VU University Amsterdam and Tinbergen Institute. The specialized DSF Master's in Finance (and Law) programmes are considered to be more comprehensive and provides rigorous understanding of finance compared to any other traditional Master's degree.
The Duisenberg school of finance attracts students who seek to achieve financial knowledge. The programmes are taught in English by a faculty selected from Dutch and foreign institutions. Financial support will be offered to talented applicants.

- Master of Science (MSc) in Risk Management

In September 2009 DSF added two new Master programmes to the existing ones:

These programmes are pragmatic, but also provide students with an unconventional and forward-looking approach to finance. Students will have the opportunity to become involved in research and will profit from the exposure to the school’s faculty, experts and fellow students.

Together, the Dutch government, the city of Amsterdam and five notable Dutch universities, specifically the University of Amsterdam, Tilburg University, Erasmus University Rotterdam, VU University Amsterdam, and Tinbergen Institute, established Duisenberg School of Finance. Professors from these Dutch Universities have joined together with other professors from universities around the globe to form a faculty. Many faculty members share similar experiences as to Duisenberg himself, having worked as academics, worked in banks or financial institutions, or served in a regulatory function.
Duisenberg school of finance was established also with the support of Dutch and international financial companies. These include: the Dutch Central Bank, ING Group, insurance giant AEGON, Fortis Bank Nederland, SNS Reaal, NYSE Euronext, the world’s largest stock market, and APG, a Dutch pension group. Given the close cooperation with industry, Duisenberg school of finance is positioned to bring global financial leaders from these companies and other international companies to the classroom, so bridging the gap between theory and practice, which Wim Duisenberg strongly valued. Students at Duisenberg school of finance may also benefit from this collaboration when they conduct their internships.
Duisenberg school of finance’s priority research goal is to work at an integrated view of the financial system, breaking down traditional distinctions between corporate finance, banking, risk management and asset pricing.
