Schools

The development of 5 Schools

Wittenborg University of Applied Sciences was traditionally a Business School. When it moved from its original location, the town of Deventer, to Apeldoorn in 2010, it set out to develop programmes & research projects in 5 different areas, so as to uniquely identify itself within Dutch higher education.
The schools would all maintain the binding elements of programmes focused on ‘management’, with ‘internationalisation’, ‘diversity’ and ‘sustainability’ as key characteristics of the institute and its programmes.
