Educational opportunities for companies
A custom programme can be tailored to the specific needs of an organisation, such as management training, a talent development programme for young professionals and a complete Master’s degree programme for employees appointed to a new position. The Academy of Masters & Professional Courses at The Hague University of Applied Sciences offers practice-oriented educational opportunities to organisations and their employees. These can take place in-company, at an external location, at the university of applied sciences or through web-based lectures.
Together with companies
Together with the company, the goals of the programme and its duration are discussed, the desired situation for the organisation established and the programme contents determined. Most of the lecturers have experience in the sector, giving them an excellent understanding of the daily practice of the employees and which also means that they speak your language.
Various types of clients
The Academy of Masters & Professional Courses has organised a wide range of short and longer custom programmes for clients in recent years. For the embassy staff at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, for example, a ‘Controller’ programme was developed that involved blended learning since the target group consisted of employees deployed around the world.
Another example is the ‘MBA Foundations for the Public Sector’ programme, developed by the Academy together with the Brazilian government. During the month-long programme, the 75 Brazilian government representatives in the Netherlands gained knowledge of public management and learned about best practices from the Dutch public sector.
Accredited degree programmes
For our custom programmes, the Academy for Masters & Professional Courses uses the modules and lecturers from its accredited Master’s and post-graduate programmes. The Academy offers courses in the Business Administration & Management, Finance & Risk and Organization & Employability sectors.
