ABRI Education

ABRI aims to create an environment to create research excellence amongst students and participating professors. Therefor, we organise extensive graduate education in business performance and management of professional and financial services.

In 2009 the Amsterdam Business Research Institute was set up as an initiative of the School of Business & Economics of Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam. In September 2009 ABRI started a 4 year full-time PhD programme in Business and Organisation. After a successful year, ABRI expanded its collaboration with the VU Faculty of Social Sciences (FSW) and the Amsterdam Business School of the University of Amsterdam (UvA), in order to continue to deliver excellent teaching and research. 

We are proud to offer, as part of our PhD Programme, a Research Master programme in Business in Society (2 years), that can also be accessed by current MSc students with an interest in an academic career.
