The 18-year-old climbed through the ranks to secure a place in the club's first team during the course of last term.
Ajax chief Danny Blind feels the Dutch youth international has a bright future in the game and has handed him a three-year deal.
Emanuelson is delighted by the developments and is looking to secure a regular starting berth next term.
"Officially I haven't signed anything yet, but that will happen soon," he told De Telegraaf.
"It has always been a dream of mine to become a first team regular at Ajax.
"Last year I played five games and if it's right, then that will be more next season.
"The offer from Ajax spoke a lot about the confidence the club have in me."
