De Nieuwe Compagnie van Verre (N.C.V.), association of students from Nyenrode Business Universiteit, was founded on the 8th of Februari 1947, only one year after the foundation of het Nederlands Opleidings Instituut voor het Buitenland, the 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. Currently, studying at Nyenrode consists of three main pillars: the academic part, the student life and the N.C.V. Despite the changes in the past, the third pillar always remained a steady course; The Nieuwe Compagnie van Verre has always remained strong, and to this date still is the important and valuable extension of both the Nyenrode study and campus life.
The N.C.V. is both a study as a social association with members currently from the BScBA and MSc program.
The N.C.V. gives it participants the possibility to evolve themselves by participating in one or more of the 44 committees. Besides the committees, the N.C.V. also has fraternities, sororities and year clubs, which all contribute to life-long friendships.
