'EMBA helped me broaden my horizon' The Executive MBA program has helped me tremendously as a manager, by teaching me to look at things from different perspectives. This EMBA course has encouraged me to broaden my horizon and take a close look at how I can improve in my own professional field. The program also focuses on the social impact of your business. You look at long-term solutions that will help your company contribute to society. The Executive MBA course was easy to combine with my personal life. Lectures only took place during one weekend a month, which meant I did not have to sacrifice quality time with my family or my job.' Boy Sleddering Business Manager


Executive MBA Program – Program Overview

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'.
