Our MBA programme

  • Full-time or part-time

    On campus, full-time or part-time

    The Amsterdam MBA is our on-campus MBA programme. We give you the option to study full-time or part-time, so you can choose what fits you best. The full-time MBA takes 12 months, offers 15 hours per week of scheduled on-campus classes and starts in September. The part-time MBA takes 24 moths, offers 7 hours of scheduled on-campus classes and also starts in September.

    Hybrid MBA

    Do you prefer the freedom to study wherever you want? Choose our part-time Hybrid MBA to follow live online classes, but still engage in various on-campus activities.

  • Core programme

    The MBA core programme consists of 4 clusters evolving around key management subjects:

    • Leadership
    • Strategy & Operations
    • Finance & Accounting
    • Contemporary Management Issues

    Together they address the key challenges for future leaders in business and society.

Education in the 1st semester of 2020-2021

The 2020-2021 academic year will start as scheduled in September. If we are once again allowed to offer education to physically take place at the Roeterseiland Campus, we will do this. We will use a step-by-step approach to decide which components we will be able to offer physically on campus, in compliance with government regulations. We expect that at first, these will mainly be small-scale activities organised to promote contact between students and between lecturers and students.

We will provide you as a student – wherever you may reside – with the certainty that you will be able to commence or continue with your study. Therefore, we will in any case offer education and exams online in the 1st semester. In each period, we will evaluate whether the circumstances, in line with the social distancing rules of a 1.5 metre society, allow for meetings of small groups for small-scale lectures at the Roeterseiland Campus. There will be no mandatory attendance for these lectures.

Small-scale, interactive classes

Small class sizes underpin our programme’s success. Each year’s cohort comprises around 25 students, with a maximum of 5 per group for team projects. This intimate learning environment allows you to interact fully with fellow students and peers. Maximising learning potential and fostering a sense of investment and inclusion.

International with diverse backgrounds

Learn from both your instructors with in-depth industry experience and a world-class academic reputation and from your international and motivated classmates. All with highly diversified industry backgrounds.
