Master of Business Administration [EN] (Full-time)

The Hague is an international conglomerate of global organisations and businesses. It is the political heart of the Netherlands and also hosts the international criminal court and many other international institutes. Its proximity to Rotterdam, Delft, Utrecht and Amsterdam provides with an excellent central location for businesses and serves as a hub for a variety of entrepreneurial activities. Studying at THUAS therefore means that you have the opportunity to connect with some of the top multinationals of the world that are present in the city such as Shell, Siemens, KPN, T-Mobile, Huawei, Unilever and DSM. Therefore, our MBA creates an excellent opportunity for networking. 

At the MBA programme of THUAS, a top degree programme in the Netherlands*, you will encounter four important but distinct phases in the curriculum that will help you develop into a confident business professional. The first phase consists of basic modules that offer a solid foundation for your personal and professional development. The next phases offer modules to further deepen your knowledge in addition to implementing strategies and business models.  You will also acquire research skills and further develop your leadership competencies. The last component of the curriculum, and final phase, is the master thesis. The thesis incorporates and consolidates all the knowledge you have obtained throughout the programme and demonstrates your ability to act and think as an MBA graduate.

* Our MBA programme previously earned the title ‘Top Degree Programme!’ in 2017 (source: Keuzegids Masters 2017)

Structure and courses

The icing on the cake of your education

During the THUAS MBA you will learn how to apply business theory to real life scenarios. MBA students analyse relevant and current case studies, and will role-play as business consultants advising organisations on current issues they are struggling with. Social entrepreneurship and responsible leadership, but also human resources management, accounting, marketing and strategy are therefore at the very core of the MBA curriculum.

At THUAS, we find the practical side of business & management studies very important. To complement the regular curriculum you can expect elements of consultancy, case study, team projects, business planning, intercultural communication and critical thinking. We also arrange company visits and guest lectures by alumni. We have previously visited PostNL, Circl, Fairphone and update our visits each year.

Your programme exists of Core Modules and Specialisation modules, complemented by a vertical line of leadership development and business research methods. The Integration module forms a bridge between theory and practice, core and specialisation. Students can also opt to obtain an MBA in Responsible Management, and follow Term 3 at UPEACE in Costa Rica focusing on CSR.
