Program & Price

The program is online. A student is taking studies from his/her home or any other place.

We offer a high-quality program that is in full accordance with standards for an MBA program. Our program is incomparably cheaper than any other program that would provide such a high level of education!

The Netherlands Education Group (a subsidiary of Stichting Libertas International) is in process of applying for accreditation for a Master's education in the Netherlands. Such accreditation is provided to educational institutions by the Accreditation Organization of the Netherlands and Flanders. One of the requirements for accreditation is a completed 1-year (or longer) education program. That is why we are organizing this Online MBA program – and that is why the price is so cheap!

With your help, we will be able to receive the accreditation and offer an actual Master-degree program! For you, that also means that the diploma will be issued by an institution that is accredited in accordance with the standards of Dutch Master-education!
The program is offered for this price only this year. After we receive the accreditation the price for the program will significantly grow. So, if you want to receive quality business education that is complying with international standards for a very cheap price – you have this opportunity now! Next year the program will cost much more!
What do you get? 
When we receive accreditation for the Master's program you can join it! And that will be free for you! That means that we will apply for you for 1-year study visa and in case of successful completion of the Master program in the Netherlands – you can apply afterward for a 1-year Orientation Visa to look for a job in the Netherlands
Yes! We are not joking! Why do we do that? Because we believe that refugees in today’s Europe can play a significant positive role in economic development and opportunities like this can give them the tools to do it!

So how the process is organized? A student receives study materials for each study block. The student studies those materials and needs to prepare the assignments for each course. The assignments are different – it could be an essay, small research, offering the solution, etc. Then the student needs to send the assignment to the tutor within a particular deadline. A tutor checks the assignment and provides evaluation with detailed feedback. Our tutors are all experienced specialists in their area – professors of universities, MBA-graduates, practicing professionals. Though the program is online, the participants receive relevant feedback on their assignments.

The course is certified.
