Connecting MAcbook Pro to external monitor

Hello,

Would you advise me what cable/adapter I need to connect my MAcbook Pro 15|" 2014 late to my NEC Multisync PA241W Displayport? Will use it as external monitor.
Many Thanks

Going only from specs, not from personal experience, something like this:

Use DisplayPort (on the MacBook Pro, what Apple calls ThunderBolt). The display should have come with a cable.
