AMBA-ACCREDITED

TiasNimbas Business School


Age: Combined, Tias and Nimbas clock up 41 years' experience in delivering business education.

History: In September 2006, Universiteit Nimbas and Tias Business School joined forces to create TiasNimbas Business School. Previously, Nimbas formed an alliance with Bradford University School of Management and awarded Bradford degrees. Tias, on the other hand, was born from two top Dutch universities (Tilburg University and Eindhoven University of Technology), with an international reputation for economics and technology. In 2008, TiasNimbas launched a competence centre to address governance of private public sector enterprise (CBMO) while, in the same year, the competence centre Globus broadened its focus from globalisation and sustainable development to corporate global responsibility.

Address: Campuses in the Netherlands (Utrecht, Tilburg, Eindhoven) and Germany (Bonn), as well as offices in Berlin and Taipei, Taiwan.

Ambience: The campus in Utrecht is located at one of Utrecht's famous canals. The building is of national historical importance, parts of it dating back to the 16th century. The Tilburg campus boasts state-of-the-art amphitheatre-style lecture theatres and over 40 break-out rooms. The campus in Eindhoven is located at the TU/e multimedia pavilion. Classes are also held at the High Tech Campus in Eindhoven where over 90 companies and institutions have established themselves.

Vital statistics: Programmes are taught by TiasNimbas faculty and by visiting professors from partner universities in Britain, the US and Germany, among other countries. You can choose between a one-year full-time MBA programme, three two-year part-time MBA programmes, or an 18-month modular executive MBA. TiasNimbas also offers a four-year part-time Doctor of Business Administration (DBA), in-company programmes, Executive Masters and executive development programmes, an MA in international business and marketing, and an MSc in financial management. Lectures are given in English and Dutch.

Added value: Strong international flavour, enhanced by the chance to spend time abroad. Flexibility that allows students to make up missed classes on other TiasNimbas programmes.

Easy to get into? For the International Full-Time MBA, you'll need a good degree, excellent English, a minimum of three years' work experience, an interview, and a high GMAT score. For the International Executive MBA (IMM), in addition to a good degree and excellent English, you will also need a minimum of five years work experience in positions of increasing professional responsibility as well as a current position of significant responsibility.

Glittering alumni: Dr Ronald Latenstein van Voorst, controlling director, SNS Real Group; Oktay Erciyaz, director of finance and controlling, DirectGroup Bertelsmann; Paul-Peter Feld, director of HR, legal and public relations, Xerox BV.

International connections: The school has partnerships with Bradford University School of Management in the UK; Purdue University in the USA; Central European University Budapest in Hungary and GISMA Business School Hanover in Germany as well as exchange opportunities at Cranfield University (United Kingdom), National Chiao Tung University (Taiwan), University of Glasgow Business School (United Kingdom), and University of Peking, Guanghua School of Management (China).

Student profile: The average age on the full-time MBA is 30; on the part-time, 35. The male to female ratio is 60:40, and the School’s 2500 students hail from around 60 countries.

Cost: Next year's fees are approximately €32,950 for the one-year International Full-Time MBA programme; and €38,950 for the two-year part-time (Tilburg, Utrecht and Bonn) programmes. The 18-month International Executive MBA (IMM) is €52,500.

Return on investment: Project-based approach to learning grants participants the chance to ‘ask’ and to ‘do’. The benefits of this approach are employees with more valuable contributions, improved problem-solving assets, vibrant networks and global options.

Who's the boss? Professor Ramon O'Callaghan, who received his MBA from IESE in Spain and a doctoral degree from Harvard Business School.
