MSc in Management Challenge

Are you thinking about starting an academic master at Nyenrode, but do you lack the financial means to start your application? Join our MSc in Management Challenge on the 14th of July and get the opportunity to have your full tuition fee (€29.250)  for the Full-time Master of Science in Management waived! Are you the talented young professional we're looking for?

The challenge in detail

Potential students get the opportunity to pitch a business case to a Nyenrode jury of four members who are willing to invest in the student's further education. This means that the winner gets a full tuition waiver and starts with the master program this August.

The challenge consists of two parts:

  1. The video application (deadline 24 June 2021)
  2. The pitching day on campus

The pitching day takes place on the Nyenrode campuses in Breukelen and Amsterdam and is broadcast live on YouTube and Instagram. Nyenrode reporters Amber & Sharon (see video above) guide the participants in preparation for their pitches and share backstage footage with the online audience. Family members and friends can watch the broadcast and support their loved ones online.

The complete process

  1. Registration form: start your application by completing the registration form on this page.
  2. Video submission: after submitting the registration form, you receive more detailed information about the video application. In this video you state your name, share your ambitions and elaborate on why Nyenrode should invest in you. Address at least one of Nyenrode's core values: Leadership, Entrepreneurship & Stewardship.
    This is your time to convince us that you are the talent that we've been looking for all along. 
  3. First selection & business case: after evaluating all the applications, the Nyenrode jury members select 10 participants who made it to the final pitching day. These 10 participants receive a real life business case from one of our jury members and have one week to work on the case.
  4. Pitching day: on the 14th of July all the 10 participants are invited to the Nyenrode campuses to pitch the business case outcome. As a participant, you have the opportunity to show the jury that you meet Nyenrode's academic standards and provide additional reasoning on how the master will help you to achieve your (professional) goals.
