curriculum

Our unique approach to education results in a curriculum that is multidimensional and can adapt to your needs. The curriculum not only stimulates the cognitive skills of students, but also focuses on their individual development. Firstly, we centralise the development of your authentic personal skills. Secondly, a third of the program exists out of real-life challenges and collaborations with international businesses. And lastly, we established an off- and online education structure that is pro-active in nature. We believe in learning by doing!

This holistic approach to education is transformative for Dutch and International standards.

We update our curriculum constantly to link it to the current and future developments of our societies. For a break down by year and the explanation of the wheel of education, read more below.

Central to our curriculum is your personal development. Throughout the whole program you have access to coaching to develop your authentic skills and unlock your potential.

The content of the program is multidisciplinary and ranges from data to business. This way you prepare to become a multi-skilled employee or entrepreneur. We believe this is a guarantee for landing a good job right after graduation! The content is taught through both online and offline courses.

The challenges are an important part of our curriculum. After all, real-world challenges will give you real-world experience. You will learn by, together with your fellow students, designing creative solutions to real-life problems and cases offered by major global companies.

Online education through MOOCs (Massive Open Online Courses) are a form of interactive learning that develops your professional skills at the same time as embodying the content. The online courses allow for an interactive and innovative learning environment where simulations and gamification allow you to ‘play’ and learn at the same time!
