About Distance Learning MBA, International MBA Programme, MBA - at Business School Netherlands

The International MBA is a part-time, blended learning programme that embraces the philosophy of Action Learning. For those looking to continue beyond Master level education, the International MBA is the perfect stepping-stone on the journey to continued success, learning and breakthrough.

From the outset, as an International MBA student you will focus 100% on topics of relevance to you and your organisation. Through research and discussion, you will discover methods to resolve issues and implement new plans; applying change through action. You will complete four in-house assignments; Action Learning Projects (ALPs) aimed at issues of departmental level. Then the completion of the Dissertation, tackles a strategic organisational predicament where various research methodologies also come in to play.

Replicates the Global Business Environment

Those that address problems alone stand alone, but those that form a strong team and tackle a
problem in a cohesive, synergistic manner, ask challenging questions and devise the strongest
of formulas for change, they therefore realise their goals in an empowering fashion. For this
reason, your classmates, from various business backgrounds, are your winning team.

Assessment is based upon the areas that are relevant to professionals in a leadership position; we will appraise your diagnosis of the problem, your plan of action, your field research, your evaluation of the situation, and how you implement the plan to resolve the issue. Finally, we will assess your personal reflection of the situation; what you learned through the process and what if anything you will change next time.

Our specialised coaches encourage student interaction and lively discussion within the virtual class environment. Renowned module instructors and our in-house staff play a vital role during your visit with us at the international residency conferences. Here you have the opportunity to ask the most challenging of questions, dispute theories and exchange inspirational experiences.

With the additional support of our immense database of online journals, periodicals and management reviews, whatever your subject of interest, there is no problem in finding topical, significant and relevant information at the click of your mouse.
