Pre-Master's programme for University Bachelor's students

How to apply

The programme

The Master’s in Business Administration is a multidisciplinary programme. This is why the pre-Master's programme for university-level students focuses primarily on theoretical knowledge in a number of core areas in Business Administration. Such as: Marketing, Strategy, Leadership and Management. These courses provide a solid foundation for your final choice of which track you want to take. Read more about the various courses and the learning objectives here.

In addition to theoretical knowledge you will also learn how to approach your profession with an  academic and professional attitude: independent, confident and innovative. These three characteristics will become part of your DNA so you can put them into practice in your future business administration career. During the programme we will challenge you, inspire you and support you in achieving this goal.
