Do you have an entrepreneurial and global mindset? And are you eager to start an international career in business? The University of Amsterdam Business School is one of the few institutions in the Netherlands where you can start your Master’s in Business Administration in February as well as in September. Choose 1 of 3 tracks and learn to analyse complex organisational issues and design effective solutions.
How should businesses respond to the opportunities of new technology, digital marketing and globalisation? Why are some start-ups successful in developing new products and markets while others are not?
To solve such complex business issues, you need specialist knowledge and the ability to collaborate with other disciplines. We train you to study current research literature and subsequently apply that know-how to problems that companies face today.
This Master’s offers you the possibility to focus on the international aspects of business and management. And prepare for your career by solving real-world case studies presented by our corporate partners, such as ING, L’Oréal, Vodafone, Ahold Delhaize, VandeBron and Google.
Doing business internationally is reflected in all parts of our course design.
Be prepared to team up with fellow students from all over the world, which offers you the opportunity to widen your perspective and have an extraordinary learning experience.
You can tailor the programme to your needs and interests.
You will kick off your studies with ‘UvA in Carré’, a series of inspirational seminars featuring prominent speakers from leading companies such as ING, L’Oréal, Vodafone, Ahold Delhaize, VandeBron and Google. They will present their visions on current business issues and share their insights and experiences.
You can choose from a wide selection of electives we call business labs. Each one is connected to a corporate partner. You will be challenged to solve real-world business issues, working in international teams and presenting your solution to the company.
The Master’s thesis is the final requirement for your graduation. It is your chance to dive deep into a topic that you are enthusiastic about. A professor in your field of choice (track) will supervise and support you in writing your thesis.
Upon graduation, you will be awarded the title Master of Science (MSc).
