How does it work and what are the steps?

At the moment we are in the process of applying for accreditation to be able to offer a full-time MBA program in the Netherlands. When you complete the Online MBA you will have the possibility to participate in short research and the results might be taken into consideration for the accreditation process. When we receive the accreditation – we will open a full-time MBA in the Netherlands. As an alumnus of our Online program, you will be offered studies for FREE. That means you will be able to travel to the Netherlands and do studies for free. You will still be asked to pay for your accommodation and living costs (food, transportation etc). But as a student in the Netherlands, you will be allowed to work 16 hours per week and full time in the summer months. If you are interested, you can work next to your studies and cover your costs. We might be able to advise where you will be able to find a job. After graduation from a full-time MBA, you will be given a one-year residence permit – orientation year visa – that gives you the right to work in the Netherlands. And if you would like to stay in the Netherlands further – during this year you can look for a job that will allow you to stay in the Netherlands after your one-year permit as well.  The scholarship is equal to 90% of the total fee for the program.
