Wittenborg's New Master in Business Management Due to Start in September

MBM Applicants Don't Need Work Experience, Unlike MBA

Applications are now open for a new cluster of master's programmes at Wittenborg University of Applied Sciences - the Master in Business Management (MBM) – which will start in September this year.

Unlike classic MBA programmes the MBM programme does not require applicants to have work experience of 3 years or more. Wittenborg senior admissions officer, Florian Oosterberg, said: “Another contrast with the classic MBA is that students are offered specialisation modules from the first semester, and also introduced to professional-based learning and company exposure.”

According to Oosterberg applications are going well, and many Wittenborg alumni as well as current students have shown interest.

There are 8 specialisations within the MBM programme of which 4 fall under Wittenborg’s School of Business and 4 under the School of Hospitality & Tourism. With the latter, a double degree with the University of Brighton is possible.

“For our current International Business Administration (IBA) students this is a great programme to do as a follow-up if they want to do a master's degree but have not yet gained work experience,” Oosterberg said. “The duration of the programme is 1.5 years and it has more economic-related content than an MBA. It also features Project Weeks and, as with our other master's programmes, doing an internship is optional,” Oosterberg said.

There are 6 entry dates per year for applicants. The 8 MBM specialisations are: Human Resource Management, Logistics and Trade, Digital Marketing & Communication, Entrepreneurship & Innovation, Sport Business, Tourism & Travel, Hospitality Management and Event Management.
