About Entrepreneurship at Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam

Turning opportunities into action

Thinking and feeling like an entrepreneur benefits your career as employee or business owner. That is why the Master's programme Entrepreneurship aims to provide students with cutting-edge knowledge on entrepreneurship, relevant skills, and an entrepreneurial attitude. Students will be able to bridge theory and practice by applying and creating relevant academic knowledge on entrepreneurship in real life settings to solve challenging problems.

You will be equipped to assess and successfully develop new business ideas in uncertain environments with limited resources but with decent foundations, in the context of both new ventures as well as established firms.

The programme broadly positions the concept by looking at different types of entrepreneurship. This broad positioning can also be seen in the enrollment of students from various academic backgrounds; not only students with a degree in business or economics are admitted but also students with degrees in different academic disciplines.

Entry requirements

The Environment and Resource Management programme is open to both Dutch and international students. The Faculty's Admission Board will decide upon your admission after having evaluated your complete online application.

In order to gain admission to the Environment and Resource Management Master's programme, you will need to have at least a Bachelor's degree from an accredited research university including at least three full years of academic study amounting to a minimum of 180 ECTS or equivalent. We do not require a GRE or GMAT test score. A Bachelor degree obtained at an applied university or higher vocational education (HBO in Dutch) in most cases does not grant direct access to the programme (only exceptionally high ranking students stand a chance of admission).

Students from all disciplinary backgrounds will be considered, but the following subjects provide a particularly relevant basis for participating in the ERM programme: Environmental studies, Economics, Political Science, Social Science, Law, Natural Sciences.
