Tuition Fee 2021-2022

The Dutch government proposes a one-off reduction of tuition fees for everyone enrolled in higher education in the academic year 2021-2022. The general aim is to give students some financial space during the corona pandemic. We announce the amounts when the law on them is passed.

Teaching and assessment

Study load

Business Innovation consists of three components: the core curriculum (120 EC), the negotiated curriculum (60 EC) and the graduation track (60 EC). Count on an average of forty hours of studying per week: attending class and working on assignments and projects with other students. You can earn 15 study credits per term for a total of 60 credits per year.


Binding Study Recommendation

At the end of the first year, we assess your study results to determine whether you met the requirements to continue to the second year. You need to obtain 50 ECTs including the study units Fundamentals of Business (FoB) and Applied Design Thinking (ADT) in order to be admitted to the second year.
