Wittenborg University is currently in the process of validating and accrediting a new Master programme, the MBA (International Master of Business Administration). The programme will combine traditional MBA subjects with the opportunity for students to specialize in distinct pathways, such as Entrepreneurship, Hospitality or Consultancy.  Currently the programme is under accreditation / peer review by the German, Swiss and Austria based FIBAA, and later other international accreditations, including the Dutch NVAO will be applied.

The MBA degree programme is aimed at providing graduates with the skills and competencies to fulfil management positions in the field of business administration, both in the public and private sector. These positions can  include management or policy- making positions in  large organisations, as  well  as positions of management in small  to medium sized companies (SMEs). An aim is that students are able to critically  analyse and evaluate various developments within an  organisation so  that they can  form,  create and instigate policies, visions and aims and solutions within that organisation. They should be in a position to analyse the  strategic processes  and vision of  a company  or  organisation and  using this   analysis apply and implement tools to innovate, optimise and (re-)structure these processes using an  integral approach. From an international perspective the students should learn to analyse the   environment they find themselves in and adapt their behaviour and role according to the  macro and micro environments they find themselves in.

The MBA programme is aimed at both international and local  students who have worked or are working within an international context in the fields of management and administration, either in business or non-commercial organisations, and aspire to continue developing careers in these areas. Students entering  the  programme,  will  have a feel   for  an intercultural and multi-lingual learning environment.

The   MBA   is   aimed   specifically   at   providing graduates with  the  opportunity to further develop a set of broad and equally balanced range of business, management   and  organisation  knowledge,  skills and competencies, whilst  also  allowing them to specialise during the programme in a more specific region  of  business  administration  that  interests them, and can allow them to create a more specific graduation profile. The MBA is also clearly aimed at providing students with  the  knowledge and skills that would enable them to further their studies at a  higher level  (for  instance a  DBA) if they wish  to, within a  Dutch higher education  system, however also in other systems.

The MBA is expected to be launched in the 2014-2015 academic year, and as places are limited students are requested to register their interest on time.
