TIAS is a fast growing business school in Europe, having expanded almost tenfold over the past ten years. We are the executive education arm of Tilburg University and Eindhoven University of Technology. Tilburg is internationally recognised as having one of the top three economics faculties in Europe, and Eindhoven as a leading European technical university. We offer one of the most comprehensive portfolios of programmes anywhere, focused on executive education for managers and professionals.
Today, TIAS is one of the top business schools in The Netherlands. All of our MBA programmes are internationally ranked and accredited by AMBA. We select only high calibre participants who are looking for a new intellectual challenge and who either wish to specialise further in their careers, or who wish to move into broader management roles, or who simply wish to top up their knowledge.
Our faculty are drawn from across the world and are ,hand-picked based on their experience and success in management education for professionals, and their ability to translate and communicate new knowledge and practice into the classroom.
Our small class sizes allow us to provide you with personal attention and focus from top international faculty, programme managers and dedicated support staff.
TIAS alumni play prominent roles in organisations both within The Netherlands and abroad. Many of our alumni are proud of their association with TIAS and are keen to remain part of the TIAS network. To maintain contact between the school and our alumni, we organise regular alumni events.
TIAS MBA programmes are distinctive through the "Frontiers of Knowledge" (conceptual knowledge driven) and "Project-based Learning" approach. For both the participant and the sponsoring company we offer a return on investment in terms of development and professionalism, a combination which makes our programmes extremely attractive.
Master of Business Administration (MBA) - Choice of Location and Formats
The TIAS MBA portfolio offers various MBAprogrammes:
A Full-time programme in Utrecht; Part-time programmes with different formats (weekly vs. monthly), different locations (Tilburg, Utrecht, Bonn), choice of degrees (Dutch and/or UK) and a distinctive focus of attention in the curriculum; and an international executive MBA programme (modular format, global residencies, dual degree).
The three programmes run in conjunction with Bradford University School of Management in the UK, one of the oldest and most respected business schools in Britain, include the Part-time MBA Utrecht, the Part-time MBA Bonn and the Full-time MBA also based in Utrecht.
Unlike a programme offered in the UK, however, you will experience the benefits of studying in a multi-cultural, English speaking environment in The Netherlands, at the crossroads of continental Europe.
The one year Full-time MBA programme is truly international with students coming from all continents of the world and an average age of 30, who engage in this international programme that is shorter in duration than most MBA programmes.

Both programmes target motivated people from a broad range of managerial, professional and cultural backgrounds who are looking for an advanced general management degree.
