What are you going to do?
Our Master of Science in Management is flexible in its design. You choose the program best suited to the subjects you want to excel at. You also choose your location: Breukelen or Amsterdam.
Note: classes of some tracks take place solely in Breukelen. The general classes and the pre-master classes take place at your preferred location.
Breukelen or Amsterdam
If you select Breukelen, you choose our close-knit campus community with diverse educational backgrounds and an active student association (NCV) with over 30 committees.
If you decide on Amsterdam, your classes are in Amsterdam's historic city center and you will be joined by students from all over the world. You will also be in close contact with the Nyenrode Incubator.
There is also the possibility to live on our Diemen Zuid Campus near the city. There is a limited number of places at our Amsterdam location.
If you'd like to know more about the differences between studying in Breukelen or Amsterdam, we advise you to download the Master in Management brochure.
The pre-master phase lasts a maximum of four months. You only take the classes needed. If you have a college (non-university) bachelor's degree, you follow the complete pre-master program. During the pre-master phase you have classes in these four fields:
- Academic Skills
- Organizational Behavior & Leadership Development
- Marketing Strategy & Customer Behavior
If you are a student at Amsterdam's Vrije Universiteit Medical Centre, you may arrange your pre-master as a minor Leadership in Health Care.

Select from three tracks
You choose one of these tracks during your master:
- Global Strategies & Sustainability (offered in Breukelen)
- Digital Business & Innovation (offered in Breukelen)
- Financial Management (offered in Breukelen and Amsterdam)
Students can choose a track regardless of their choice between Amsterdam or Breukelen. For example, students based in Amsterdam can follow the track Digital Business & Innovation which takes place in Breukelen (30-45 min commuting time between Amsterdam and Breukelen) Some conditions to select a track apply.
Part of your master is the Nyenrode Traineeship. During the four months of this traineeship, you apply your new found academic knowledge in a Company Project, and take part in an intensive Personal Leadership Development Journey, with workshops on Leadership, Entrepreneurship and Stewardship. You will also be trained in consultancy skills.
Electives allow you to adapt the program to suit your personal needs. Some of them provide you with an additional international experience as they include visits to cities like Geneva & Brussels. You choose two of the many subjects on offer, such as Sports Leadership, International Business & Diplomacy, Business Law or Sustainability & Ethics.
