CUTTing-edge curriculum

The modules follow the stages of growing a business. We aim to maximize the relevance of our classes by ensuring that the content we offer and the timing are aligned with your growth needs.

Scaling up a business has its unique challenges that require a different toolset than bringing an idea to market. This is something that keeps most start-ups from being able to scale effectively after their initial success.

This program knows what your journey as start-up founder has been like, and facilitates both you personally and your business to take the next step in gaining more traction in new markets, segments and expanding your portfolio of services & products.

WHY STUDENTS LOVE
OUR Master PROGRAM

You will start to grow your business from day 1: with classes and personal guidance from our learning coaches and business coaches.

We cover one topic per module, and that’s all you have to focus on during those 5 weeks.

We are in the heart of one of the biggest start-up scenes and give our students access to leading corporates across our network.

We asked experienced entrepreneurs and top academics to idenitify the most important growth challenges and used these insights to develop the Master’s program.

Thanks to our partnership with The Student Hotel, we can offer a tailored distance-learning approach, enabling you to travel, learn and grow your business across Europe.

Are you daring enough
to take a leap of faith ?

Startup Visa

Part time Masters are normally not possible for international student entrepreneurs. However, in combination with our startup visa program, it now is.

The Netherlands have a special “Startup Visa” that offers international students the opportunity to scale their own business in the Netherlands while they get their master’s degree.

We can assist you as you apply for this visa, so that you are able to stay in the country for the duration of the course, use this time to run your business and build the network you’ll need to establish your company in the local market. We can also help you stay in the Netherlands after the program while you remain in our incubator, until you can apply for permanent residency if desired.
