Redesigned Nyenrode Masters in Management expands to Amsterdam

August 24 2017

From August 2018, Nyenrode Business Universiteit offers students the possibility to follow the Full-time MSc in Management program at the Keizersgracht premises in Amsterdam. The program has been recently redesigned with a focus on digital innovation, global strategies and sustainability.

As part of the redesign of the program, two new study tracks will be offered starting from January 2018 – Digital Business and Innovation and Global Strategies and Sustainability – to accompany the pre-existing Financial Management. The new course will be run on the Breukelen campus and, from August 2018, in Amsterdam at Nyenrode’s city-center campus.


Miša Džoljić, Rector Magnificus of Nyenrode, says: “As the economy picks up we are seeing growing opportunities in the Amsterdam city region. Employment prospects for graduates are improving and that can only be a good thing. Expanding our presence in this city by offering the Master of Science in Management is highly beneficial for our students who will benefit from being able to both study within the tight-knit community of Nyenrode’s estate in Breukelen and better engage with local and international companies operating in Amsterdam’s vibrant business district.’’

Hetty van Roozendaal, Director of the Master of Science in Management, adds: “Every year 120 international companies choose to settle in Amsterdam. The City of Amsterdam has expressed ambitions to become a European business center. A location in a city like Amsterdam offers students a variety of networking opportunities. Business schools must ensure that their students are immediately eligible for the job market as soon as they graduate. At Nyenrode Business University we aim to form young, responsible leaders who know their strengths. Thanks to these developments within our program, we are further preparing students for rewarding careers"

Individual ambitions

Alongside the new study tracks, students are able to choose two additional elective modules in offerings which include Sports Leadership, Business Law, Negotiation & Conflict Resolution and Bank Financial Management, The course will also include a ‘Global Immersion Programme’ where students take part in an intense week of lectures and company visits in various global locations, and a six month Company Project tailored to their individual strengths and career aspirations.

Hetty van Roozendaal continues: “Each student is matched individually to a project that will most suit their areas of expertise and strengths, as well as their interests. They are able to integrate into these companies, many of which are in e-commerce, and are exposed to real business topics like global competition, the shift in economic power from West to East and disruptive best practices. This hands-on approach grants them management insight whilst operating in highly important international hubs. It means that they graduate with invaluable experience that so many companies desire.”
