Start your application for this Master's

Did you obtain your Bachelor's at UT or another Dutch university? And are you wondering if you can transfer to this Master's at UT? 

Perhaps you need to take the Pre-Master's first to prepare yourself for the Master's in Business Administration. Whether you are admissible, depends on your previous education. You can check below if you can enrol in the (Pre-)Master's in Business Administration with your bachelor's degree.

Can you follow this Master's after your bachelor's?

Tip: is your educational institute not listed? Check if a similar bachelor's is offered at one of the listed institutes. If that one is admissible, then you might be eligible with your bachelor's too! Just contact the study adviser if you are still trying to figure out if your bachelor's is sufficiently relevant. You can also check the (Dutch) transfer matrix.

If you have completed a bachelor's that is not listed above, and you can argue and prove that your knowledge and skills in business administration are relevant and sufficient for the Master's in Business Administration, you can also apply for admission. In all cases, the admission committee will conduct an individual assessment procedure to determine if you have sufficient basic qualifications in business administration, for example in the form of a minor or additional modules in Business Administration

Didn't graduate yet?

You may be granted conditional acceptance based on your transcripts, detailed curriculum information, relevant research and expected graduation date. To finally be enrolled in the (Pre-)Master's, you do need to submit your bachelor's degree, once you have obtained this. You can also start your application when you have obtained a bachelor's or master's degree at UT in the past. 

Need to follow a Pre-Master's first?

You don't need to sign up for the Pre-Master's itself. You apply by signing up for this Master's. UT will alter this to a pre-master's registration. Once you are admitted, you get access to the Pre-Master's automatically.
