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 home to a wide variety of (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.
