Choose your topic

You identify and develop the project together with your organisation of choice, and under the supervision of a faculty member assigned by the Amsterdam MBA programme. Samples of our MBA in-company project companies: Avanade, TomTom, Heineken, Vodafone, Philips and several start-up companies.

Examples of project topics might be:

  • Relationship-based factors that influence the performance of an international joint venture
  • Unifying brand identity: lessons from an NGO
  • How does operational process design matter for success in service quality delivery?
  • Impact of innovation technology on intellectual property in the music industry

When and where?

Research takes place during the Dutch summer period, prior to graduation. Typically from about mid-June to mid-August. The end result of the project is a written, graded report. Students in the part-time programme typically conduct their final project within the setting of their employer’s organisation or industry. Students in the full-time programme often combine their project with a summer internship.

Support in finding your project

It’s the student’s own responsibility to find a project in the field of management. Fortunately the greater Amsterdam metropolitan area is full of with (inter)national organisations.

Alumni, the Careers Office, and faculty members can also be helpful in finding a project. The organisation may even be located outside the Netherlands.
