A WORD FROM ONE OF OUR PARTICIPANTS

THE EXPERIENCE OF MAAIKE

‘What I was looking for and what I found at TIAS: professors who do not get the theory from a book, but who bring experienced knowledge that you can apply directly in your own practice. And while one does that in a more playful way, the other goes into more depth, the third really seeks interaction and the fourth brings a magnificent game to all play together.’ Maaike Blom-Bronkhorst Manager HR - Rijnstate

Executive MBA Program – Program Overview

The TIAS Executive MBA program consists of three thematic blocks and focuses on your academic and personal development, your leadership qualities and your social awareness. You close each block with an integration module. Insights from previous modules come together here. The study load for this Executive MBA is 16-18 hours per week.

International modules

The program includes two international modules. During these modules you learn to look at companies and organizations from different cultural perspectives and you develop an international perspective. The modules fit in seamlessly with the EMBA curriculum and are therefore a relevant extension of the 'classroom'. We offer the international modules in collaboration with renowned business schools from our international network.

A WORD FROM OUR ACADEMIC DIRECTOR

An MBA is not your typical educational program. Deep down, it is a transformation process, which is what makes the Executive MBA so special. Obviously, we have excellent faculty whose expertise has been tested in the corporate world. You will discover a meaningful boost to your business skills, including problem-solving and decision-making. And yet: Those skills ultimately do not make the difference. It’s all about that personal transformation. Someone who suddenly finds herself in the role of trusted advisor to the CEO. Or someone who realizes he’s ready for a big new responsibility, and makes it happen. Or someone who gets clear on what her dream is, and changes direction in order to pursue it. Our commitment, as TIAS – and mine, as Academic Director – is to help bring this transformation about. Because only then can we live up to our purpose: to develop leaders who serve society by transforming business. Executive Professor Roemer Visser Academic Director
