De Nieuwe Compagnie van Verre, the N.C.V., was founded on the 8th of Februari 1947, one year after the foundation of het Nederlands Opleidings Instituut voor het Buitenland, het N.O.I.B. The N.O.I.B. was tailored towards preparing young and talented Dutch men for a career abroad, with the ultimate goal of furthering the economy of the Netherlands. The foundation of the N.C.V., in 1947, was in collaboration with our honorably member and patron ZKH Prins Bernhard von Lippe-Biesterfeld. Since then a lot has changed at Nyenrode. Women were first allowed on campus in 1972, and the study program changed from BBA, to IDP and to MSc. In 2016 the Bachelor program returned to Nyenrode, allowing for young students to get their bachelor's degree after a 3 year program.
Currently, studying at Nyenrode consists of three main pillars which include; study, student life and the N.C.V. Despite the changes in the past, the third pillar remained constant; the N.C.V. De Nieuwe Compagnie van Verre has always remained strong, and remains to this date the important and valuable extension of both the Nyenrode study and campus life.
De Nieuwe Compagnie van Verre has it's homebase on the beautiful Nyenrode Estate. Ever since the 1947 the Student Association has been guest on this estate and it's roots, traditions and values have been heavily influenced by this location
