Master of Business Administration Part-time

At THUAS’ MBA you’ll go through four study phases. Firstly, you’ll lay a solid foundation and follow basic courses such as Business AdministrationOrganisational Behaviour, Accounting and Economics. In the second and third phase you’ll deepen the knowledge you acquire in the first term with Statistics, Corporate Finance, Strategic Management and multiple group projects. You’ll conclude the MBA with a Master Thesis in the fourth phase. Alongside these general subjects you’ll also work on your professional skills to give you that typical THUAS’ MBA edge and a competitive advantage in the business world.

Study load

Full-time students start the programme during the first week of September and complete it the following August. Part-time students take approximately two years to complete the MBA programme. Full-time students will have 24 lecture hours (which accounts for four lectures days) a week. Part-time students only follow these main courses on Tuesday and Thursday evenings from 7pm tot 10 pm over the two-year period of their studies. During the fourth term, both full-time and part-time students will complete their thesis project and won’t have any other classes during that period.

Structure of Master of Business Administration Part-time

The icing on the cake of your education

Whenever you mention the word MBA during a job interview, you’ll be sure to grab everyone’s attention. And that’s hardly surprising, considering an MBA is the most prestigious Master among business professionals. What’s more, studying at The Hague University of Applied Sciences means you have the opportunity to hone your business skills at some of the top multinationals in the world, such as Shell, Siemens, KPN, T-Mobile, Huawei, Unilever and DSM. During the THUAS’ MBA you will learn how to apply business theory to true-to-life scenarios. MBA students explore up-to-date case studies and role-play as business consultants advising organisations on current issues they are struggling with. Business administration, management skills, entrepreneurship, human resources and strategy are at the very core of MBA’s curriculum. What further sets the THUAS’ MBA apart is its evident emphasis on the practical side of business studies. To complement the regular curriculum you can expect multiple large-scale projects, such as the Bangladesh Garment Project and the Costa Rica Pineapple Project. But we also arrange plenty of company visits during the year to remind MBA students what their professional future has in store. Last year, for example, we visited De Jong Packaging, a Dutch packaging facility, and Persgroep Publishing, one of the largest media conglomerates in The Netherlands.
