It is with great sadness that the Management Team of Erasmus School of Economics has learnt of the death of student Corno van der Steen on 10 January 2017.

Corno started the Bachelor Economics and Business Economics Programme in the academic year 2014 and despite of his illness, he put down a great performance by completing all courses. Also during his second year he was able to complete a large part of his courses. Unfortunately, at the end of 2016 Corno’s health declined and his study came to a virtual standstill.

The Management Team extends its deepest sympathies to the parents, family and fellow students in this difficult time of sorrow.
