*Research Master in business administration

The University of Amsterdam and the VU University Amsterdam are 
launching a new Research Master in business administration starting in 
September 2015. This two-year Research Master named ‘Business in 
Society’ aims to prepare students for a PhD position or a 
research-related position in the public or private sector such as 
strategic advisor, researcher, or policy maker. Our Research Master is 
designed to develop the theory-building skills of students as well as 
strong methodological skills. It is a selective program (max. 25 
students) to enable individual mentoring by internationally renowned 
researchers. Content-wise, we will pay particular attention to the 
complex interactions between business and society.

We are looking for those students who are academically ambitious and 
would like to pursue a research-oriented career. Admission criteria 
include standardized tests scores above the 85^th percentile for the 
GMAT or GRE. The best graduates of our program will be offered 
fully-funded PhD positions at the two universities upon completion of 
the two-year Research Master.

*Please inform any students that you think are a good fit to our 
program, and encourage them to apply.*Applications will be accepted 
until April 1, 2015.
