To apply for the MBA programme, you will need a bachelor degree, two years of professional work experience(in any field), and a good command of the English language. Applicants who meet these criteria will then be asked to expound on their application and motivation during a short interview.
Tuition fee, tax benefits
The costs of following the MBA programme are €18,500, for both the full-time programme as well as the part-time programme. This tuition fee allows you to follow MBA classes and exams, receive thesis supervision, and get unlimited access to our library and Internet facilities. However, you will have to buy books yourself. The estimated costs are € 800.
You can also pay the tuition fee in instalments. In that case, the price of the programme is € 18,650 and we require an advance payment of € 3,000.
The Master of Business Administration is exempt from VAT for Dutch students. Your employer can fully offset training costs against gross results and label them as operating expenses. For (Dutch) private individuals, the training costs are deductible in excess of the first € 500. This could save you almost half the tuition price. For more information, call the Dutch Tax Information Line on 0800 – 0543 or visit their website: http://www.belastingdienst.nl.
Here you can find information about scholarships for international students. Please note that these scholarships are one-time scholarships only, meaning that if you obtain them it is only for your first year of study.
