From September 2017 Nyenrode Business Universiteit will run its full-time MBA program from central Amsterdam, in order to better integrate students with the European business community. The university’s flagship programme will be located at De Vijf Keijzers, a complex situated on the iconic Emperors Canal (Keizersgracht).
The relocation is part of a wider initiative to further immerse the programme within the European business landscape. Nyenrode already connects students with the Dutch labour market through activities such as 'Meet the CEO' sessions, careers events held through the school’s Career & Personal Development Centre. Furthermore, in 2016 Nyenrode launched European Immersion Modules on the Full-time MBA, through which students can visit companies operating in a variety of sectors in key European capitals of; Brussels, Copenhagen, Dublin, Milan and Paris.
Increased interest from the school’s international students to become better connected with the European business environment during their studies, has also been instrumental in the programme’s recent developments.
For Prof. Dr. Dennis Vink Program Director of the Full-time MBA, moving the programme to Amsterdam was a natural step.
“Company visits connect our students with business executives of top tier companies and institutions, providing a great opportunity for them to expand their network, learn about the latest developments in international business, and enables them to explore employment possibilities," he says.
“Our strong connection with the business world plays a big role in providing employment possibilities to our students. Currently, 82 percent of them find a job within three months after graduation. Living and studying in Amsterdam will bring our students even closer to such opportunities."
Applications for Nyenrode’s Full-time MBA September 2020 intake are currently open, and will close on August 1st. For more information visit the Full-time MBA webpages.
