Are you interested in small and medium-sized enterprises and entrepreneurship? Then this Master programme is for you.

**Best general MSc Business Administration in the Netherlands - Higher Education Guide Masters 2017**

Small- and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) comprise over 95% of businesses in many countries. SMEs are renowned for their entrepreneurship. Entrepreneurial activities allow firms to remain competitive, and they can create economic growth and solve societal problems.
You learn to understand the role SMEs are playing in the modern entrepreneurial economy and, more importantly, the strategic and managerial challenges small business owners and entrepreneurs face. Many management programmes focus on large businesses, whereas SMEs and entrepreneurial firms have specific characteristics. You will learn about them and how small business owners and entrepreneurs can effectively manage their businesses.
You will link the specific theories on SMEs and entrepreneurship to practice by means of assignments and guest lectures. The programme has an international group of enthusiastic lecturers with research experience and contacts in the professional field. Besides, the relatively small group of students results in a personal approach.

'Thinking about starting my own business'

The nice thing about the programme is that it has a very practical orientation. There is a strong focus on concrete aspects such as legislation, entry barriers and issues of succession, for example in family businesses.

" I heard about the Master's degree in SB&E at a RUG information meeting and I was immediately enthusiastic, partly because I have been interested in entrepreneurship for a long time and I am thinking about starting my own business. The nice thing about the Master's degree programme in SB&E is that it has a very practical orientation...
I am currently doing an internship at AM Energy, the 'sustainable development department' of the property developer AM, where I am investigating the possibilities for exploiting sustainable energy in the Netherlands. I am very interested in the world of real estate. It's a market with relatively few big players and a good few smaller ones, there's lots of money involved and the output is visible. I think I will end up in this market after I graduate. Many students of Economics and Business want to work for multinationals, but I am more interested in SMEs. After I graduate I will first travel around Australia and New Zealand for about a year and then find a job. I would advise new Master's students not to underestimate the first six months. It's a busy time. There are no shortcuts and it's hard work, but it's definitely worth it!"
