If you have a Bachelor’s degree in (International) Business Administration, or a comparable field of study, from a Dutch research university, you are eligible for direct admission to our Master’s programme in Business Administration. However, some students must follow a a pre-Master's programme before signing up for the Master's programme in Business Administration.
For example, if you have a Bachelor’s degree in another field or from a university of applied sciences (‘HBO’ in Dutch), then it will be up to our Admissions Committee to decide whether you can be accepted or not, and whether or not you will need to follow a customized pre-Master’s programme.
Check the admission requirements to find out whether you are eligible for the BA Master’s.
The pre-Master’s programme is a transfer and bridging programme in which you will gain the knowledge and skills needed for successful participation in the Master’s. As a student or graduate of a Bachelor’s programme at a university of applied sciences, you can enter a pre-Master’s programme after completing your Bachelor’s degree or during your Bachelor's programme. In the latter case, the pre-Master’s will be your minor. An advantage of doing the pre-Master’s as a minor at a university of applied sciences is that you won’t have to study six months extra nor pay an extra semester’s worth of tuition fees.
