logo-nl-met-payoffDear ITS Students,

The International Team of Business School Netherlands would like to share with you an opportunity to pursue The International MBA programme fully funded by the Dutch government through The Orange Knowledge Programme, a scholarship offered by Nuffic. This program will start on:

  • 10 September 2018
  • 11 February 2019
  • 9 September 2019

Nuffic is the official organization in the Netherlands to internationalize Dutch education. Orange Knowledge Programme, one of Nuffic’s scholarships, is a €185 Million global development programme, funded by the Dutch government. Formally known as the Netherlands Fellowship Programme, this new OKP programme kicked off mid-2017 and will run for a period of 5 years and involves around 52 countries. The overall aim of the OKP is to help increase both the number and the competencies of skilled staff at a wide range of governmental and non-governmental organizations.

Business School Netherlands is proud to be one of the Dutch institutions offering OKP-qualified programmes to 52 Nuffic countries. The qualified programme is its two-year English-language distance-learning International ACTION LEARNING MBA programme. For OKP scholarship recipients, tuition fee, flights and other expense incurred during the international visits will be fully funded.

BSN adopts the ACTION LEARNING methodology throughout its programmes, which brings a two-fold result at the end of the study: for the employing organisation, it can be viewed as an external consulting firm hired to address corporate issues through its employees participating in the MBA learning; for applicants as working professionals, the training is a valuable asset, improving their knowledge and skills, learning about relevant global developments as well as building an international network.

This program opens for ITS Students with criteria below :

  • You are a business manager or you hold a trainee manager post
  • You have completed a Bachelor / First Degree or equivalent
  • A recommendation letter of the applicant’s employer is required

For non-English speakers a TOEFL or IELTS language test is required. The minimum pass mark for TOEFL is 550 (paper); 213 (computer) or 80 (internet) and IELTS 6.0. Exemptions can be considered should your mother tongue be English and you have successfully completed your degree in English.

This program's price is EUR 27,500. However, Full and Partial Scholarships are available.

To apply this program, you should:

  1. Prepare and apply for the IALMBA programme
