The dual Master's programme combines work and study. During this programme the student is employed part time, and studies part time. The work has to be relevant for the study. In addition the student gets 12 credit points (cp) for the work time. The external master's project can also be carried out at the same company. Most dual students choose for this option. Two university staff members are involved in the supervision of the external master project.
Admission to the dual master's programme is granted to those who have a Business Analytics Bachelor's degree. For those with another university Bachelor's degree such as Mathematics, Econometrics, Computer Science, or a Bachelor's degree from an institute of higher education, admission may be granted on an individual basis. Those seeking admission to the dual master's programme should realise that admission also depends on obtaining suitable employment. The Vrije Universiteit has contacts with a number of companies that are interested in participating in the programme.
