Research Master in business administration
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 85th 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.
