Requirements for MSc programme
You will be admitted to the MSc programme directly if you have an academic Bachelor’s degree (BSc) in Business Administration or a business-related field, or another academic degree including sufficient courses about business and statistics.
If you have an academic degree in a different field, you may have to follow a number of courses from our pre-Master’s programme before you can enter the MSc programme.
If you have a degree from a university of applied sciences (HBO), you will have to follow the pre-Master’s programme from Amsterdam Business School to be admitted.
Requirements for pre-Master’s programme
If you are not yet eligible for the Master’s programme but you meet the requirements below, you can apply for the pre-Master's programme. Successful completion of the pre-Master’s programme guarantees you direct access to the Master's programme.
- Successfully completed higher education programme
You have an academic degree (Bachelor or Master) without quantitative courses and business courses such as strategy, marketing or human resource management.
Alternatively, you have a university of applied sciences degree (240 ECTS, HBO in Dutch) with sufficient business administration subjects.
- Courses in mathematics
You have taken mathematics courses as part of your secondary education. Dutch prospective students should have a university preparatory education (VWO) or senior general secondary education (HAVO) degree including mathematics.
If you do not have a HAVO or VWO diploma, you may be required to take an entry test in mathematics at Amsterdam Business School.
