More focus on acquiring research skills than in other business programmes in the Netherlands

Six months of studying or internship abroad as optional or fixed part of the programme.
In contrast to more general Business Administration programmes, we also focus on the social-economic aspects of running a business and catering to a particular market. You will study how different parties in markets influence the performance of the organisation and how this can be adjusted to meet the organisation's best interests. Students will also learn about research methodology, and will frequently interact with organisations to develop their hands-on experience.
