About

Nyenrode Business University

The Netherlands is an enduringly popular choice for international students, and at Nyenrode Business Universiteit you’ll see all sides of this multifaceted country. The school has two campuses: one in the capital Amsterdam and another in Breukelen, a smaller town lying between Amsterdam and Utrecht. Whilst the Amsterdam campus is centrally located within one of the liveliest cities in Europe, the tranquil Breukelen campus is located in the grounds of a 13th-century castle – yet still a short distance away from the capital. Ultimately it comes down to a choice between the push and shove of city life or the immersive university experience in Breukelen.

But no matter where you choose to study, you will be at a leading Dutch business school that over time has fostered close links with Amsterdam’s business community. The likes of PwC, Heineken and Unilever all typically recruit from Nyenrode, whilst the university’s business incubator also caters for entrepreneurs looking to join the city’s thriving startup scene. Whichever route you decide to go down after your Nyenrode experience, the school’s focus on producing not just successful but responsible leaders will leave you a more rounded individual as a result, ready to tackle any challenges your future career might present.

The Master of Science in Management is the jewel in the crown at Nyenrode, offering young professionals the chance to expand upon both their academic knowledge and practical work experience over a 16 month period. The first four months of that will be a so-called pre-master, which is a foundational course designed to prepare incoming students for the mMaster itself. Alongside the compulsory modules you will also have the chance to specialise in Digital Business & Innovation, Financial Management or Global Business before concluding your program with an individual thesis. If you want to launch your career in the Netherlands then a mMaster’s from Nyenrode Business Universiteit is the perfect first step.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why Nyenrode’s MSc in Management?

Nyenrode provides the ideal combination between academic rigor, practical relevance and personal development. During the Full-time MSc in Management program, you will follow a strong academic program while you also engage in real-life business. For example, you will work for 9 months on a Company Project including coaching sessions on how to approach these type of projects, what it means in reality to apply leadership, entrepreneurship & stewardship; among others. Some of our students have worked on the Company Project with companies such as Philips, Tesla, Heineken, etc. You will also engage in a Personal Leadership Development Journey.

What is the difference between studying in Amsterdam or Breukelen?

If you are based in Amsterdam, you can also follow one of the tracks offered in Breukelen. This only means that you will need to travel to Breukelen for classes for a period of 3-4 months. Traveling time between Amsterdam and Breukelen is of 30-45 minutes.

Can I apply for a scholarship?

Only partial. For students who choose Breukelen, Stichting Nyenrode Fund offers additional scholarship possibilities sponsored by Nyenrode alumni.

Do I need to do the Pre-Master?

This depends on your background. If you studied at a University of Applied Sciences you certainly need to follow the entire Pre-Master. For students who choose to study in Breukelen, you need to follow at least two courses of the Pre-Master to be able to live on campus. If you graduated from a research university, the courses that you need to follow during the Pre-Master will be determined according to the courses you already took.

Do I need to take the GMAT?

Yes and no. We accept GMAT and GRE scores but we also offer the Nyenrode Admission’s Test, IQ & EQ.
