New Delhi: Nyenrode Business Universiteit has redesigned its Master of Science in Management to focus on digital business, global strategy and sustainability.
As part of the redesign of the program, two new study tracks will be offered starting from January 2018 – Digital Business and Innovation and Global Strategies and Sustainability – to accompany the pre-existing Financial Management. The new course will be run on the Breukelen campus and, from August 2018, in Amsterdam at Nyenrode’s city-centre campus.
Miša Džoljić, Rector Magnificus of Nyenrode, says:
“As the economy picks up we are seeing growing opportunities in the Amsterdam city region. Employment prospects for graduates are improving and that can only be a good thing. Expanding our presence in this city by offering the Master of Science in Management is highly beneficial for our students who will benefit from being able to both study within the tight-knit community of Nyenrode’s estate in Breukelen and better engage with local and international companies operating in Amsterdam’s vibrant business district.”
Hetty van Roozendaal, Director of the Master of Science in Management, adds:
“As Japan’s biggest bank, MUFG, relocates its EU base for investment banking to Amsterdam, the city once again takes its place on the international stage. Being based in such a city brings multiple business networking opportunities.
“Business schools have a responsibility for their students to be eligible for the labour market once they graduate. Here at Nyenrode Business Universiteit, shaping young, responsible leaders who know their own strengths is the core of our mission. These developments to our programme will better prepare our students for fast-paced and rewarding future careers.”
Alongside the new study tracks, students are able to choose two additional elective modules in offerings which include Sports Leadership, Business Law, Negotiation & Conflict Resolution and Bank Financial Management. The course will also include a ‘Global Immersion Programme’ where students take part in an intense week of lectures and company visits in various global locations, and a six month Company Project tailored to their individual strengths and career aspirations.
Hetty van Roozendaal continues:
“Each student is matched individually to a project that will most suit their areas of expertise and strengths, as well as their interests. They are able to integrate into these companies, many of which are in e-commerce, and are exposed to real business topics like global competition, the shift in economic power from West to East and disruptive best practices. This hands-on approach grants them management insight whilst operating in highly important international hubs. It means that they graduate with invaluable experience that so many companies desire.”
