More than 20 students started the 1st of September in the MBA programmes at Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam. The students are full-time professionals and follow their MBA study over the weekends in Amsterdam. They all hope to obtain their MBA degree in the next 18 months. Executive MBA student Paula from Argentina responds enthusiastically to her first day: ”All the participants genuinely seem like friendly people! I am excited to spend the next 18-months with them!”
Aki Voudigaris, senior MBA recruiter, looks back on the festive launch with satisfaction: “What we have accomplished in the past years, from scratch to launch, is nothing short of a miracle! The MBA market is highly competitive in the Netherlands, and when you are launching not one, but two new programmes, the challenge becomes even more significant. Especially during a global crisis with Covid-19 and the uncertainty that comes with it. By recruiting more than 20 students, we validated that we are offering something new and different from other business schools, and we can be even more ambitious about the future." said Voudigaris.
VU Amsterdam offers an MBA programme in International Business, which is aimed at young professionals and an Executive MBA programme Leading with Purpose targeted at seasoned professionals.
