MBA programme

The MBA programme currently has 8 specialisations and is fully taught at our Apeldoorn campus. Students applying for this programme need to have at least a bachelor’s degree, along with 3 years of professional work experience afterwards. For an overview of all MBA programmes that participate in the OTS Scholarship programme, please see here.

Master of Business Management programme (MBM - MSc)

On top of the MBA programme, students interested in Wittenborg Master of Business Management (MSc) programmes can also apply for the OTS scholarship. These programmes do not require work experience, in contrast to the MBA programmes that require 3 years of experience. Another contrast to the MBA is that students are offered specialisation modules from the first semester, and also introduced to professional-based learning and company exposure.
