At the Master of Business Administration (MBA) of The Hague University of Applied Sciences (THUAS) you’ll learn to grasp those opportunities.

Master of Business Administration

Today, businesses around the world face unprecedented challenges: climate change, urbanisation, migration and shifting economic powers are but a few. Often enough though, these problems result in unexpected business opportunities. At the Master of Business Administration (MBA) of The Hague University of Applied Sciences (THUAS) you’ll learn to grasp those opportunities. Our strong focus on businesses’ social and environmental responsibility and our international perspective are a few of the reasons our graduates actually make a difference and trump shortsighted business executives.

At THUAS’ MBA you’ll go through four study phases. Firstly, you’ll lay a solid foundation and follow basic courses such as Organisational Behaviour, Accounting and Economics. In the second and third phase you’ll deepen the knowledge you acquire in the first term with Statistics, Corporate Finance, Strategic Management and multiple group projects. You’ll conclude the MBA with a Master Thesis in the fourth phase. Alongside these general subjects you’ll also work on your professional skills to give you that typical THUAS’ MBA edge and a competitive advantage in the business world.

Our MBA programme has earned the title ‘Top Degree Programme!’ for 2017! (source: Keuzegids Masters 2017)

Students can also follow an MBA specialization track in Responsible Management, in collaboration with UPEACE, taking place in term 3. Four specialization modules around the themes of sustainable business, responsible management, corporate social responsibility and social entrepreneurship will take place at the University for Peace in Costa Rica. The final phase will be in The Hague with the MBA Full Time cohort. You will earn UN approved certificates on top of the MBA degree.

Study load

Full-time students start the programme during the first week of September and complete it the following August, and will have 24 lecture hours (which accounts for four lectures days) a week. During the fourth term, students will complete their thesis project and won’t have any other classes during that period.

Structure of Master of Business Administration (MBA)

The icing on the cake of your education

Whenever you mention the word MBA during a job interview, you’ll be sure to grab everyone’s attention. And that’s hardly surprising, considering an MBA is the most prestigious Master among business professionals. What’s more, studying at The Hague University of Applied Sciences means you have the opportunity to hone your business skills at some of the top multinationals in the world, such as Shell, Siemens, KPN, T-Mobile, Huawei, Unilever and DSM. During the THUAS’ MBA you will learn how to apply business theory to true-to-life scenarios. MBA students explore up-to-date case studies and role-play as business consultants advising organisations on current issues they are struggling with. Business administration, management skills, entrepreneurship, human resources and strategy are at the very core of MBA’s curriculum. What further sets the THUAS’ MBA apart is its evident emphasis on the practical side of business studies. To complement the regular curriculum you can expect multiple large-scale projects, such as the Bangladesh Garment Project and the Costa Rica Pineapple Project. But we also arrange plenty of company visits during the year to remind MBA students what their professional future has in store. Last year, for example, we visited De Jong Packaging, a Dutch packaging facility, and Persgroep Publishing, one of the largest media conglomerates in The Netherlands.

Costs

Tuition fee

The costs of following the MBA programme are €19,900, for both the full-time programme as well as the part-time programme. This tuition fee allows you to follow MBA classes and exams, receive thesis supervision, and get unlimited access to our library and Internet facilities. However, you will have to buy books yourself. The estimated costs are € 800.

You can also pay the tuition fee in instalments. In that case, the price of the programme is € 20,400. 

If you follow an MBA specialization track in Responsible Management you will pay EUR 23,500 (incl. travel & accommodation costs).

Tax benefit

The Master of Business Administration is exempt from VAT for Dutch students. Your employer can fully offset training costs against gross results and label them as operating expenses. For (Dutch) private individuals, the training costs are deductible in excess of the first € 500. This could save you almost half the tuition price.
