Our incompany programmes

We offer customised programmes that focus on relevant market trends and business insights. Programmes can cover a broad range of topics, varying from data science to business strategy, and from operational management to business innovation and sustainability.

All our programmes offer an academic base and an interactive outcome. Your employees will be taught by university lecturers and experienced industry experts. Our incompany programmes combine a theoretical foundation with a practical, which means lessons learned can directly be applied into daily working practice.

Our customised portfolio consists of:

  • Short- and long-term programmes, offered as a hybrid (online and onsite), online or face-to-face programme. Think of 2-day masterclasses or long-term programmes of several months.
  • Knowledge boost lectures: short introduction lectures of max. 3 hours, presented as a webinar or face-to-face seminar. Lectures can be an introduction to a more in-depth open programme or be presented as a standalone presentation.

Programmes and lectures can be held at the convenience of your office or via online learning. It is also possible to accommodate the classes at the Amsterdam Business School (ask for the conditions).

Our personal partnership approach

We believe that designing a tailor-made programme is a partnership. Together, we create an incompany programme that meets your needs and ambitions. You might already have a detailed plan with specific themes in mind, or maybe you are looking for advice on how to set up a programme from strategy to execution. Either way, we are happy to think along and provide ideas to create impactful learning for the employees at your organisation. And to ensure all your objectives are being met, we will evaluate the programme during, and after completion of the programme. Together we build an educational framework for your employees to maximise their development.
