"These times call for leaders and managers who have developed a broad perspective on everything happening inside and outside their organization. Who, on all levels, are worthy conversation partners, able to form solid opinions on the more traditional functional specialties. A critical opinion, one that is based on facts but also considers social context. The Master of Management and Organization offers a commanding education to successfully fulfill a corresponding role. Give your career and your organization a new impulse with a Master of Management and Organization."

  • Toos Dankers
    Manager Personeel en Organisatie/ Risk en Veiligheid RET

    "Because of the Executive Master of Management and Organization (MMO) I now can combine theory with practice and the other way around. The insight to see a situation from different perspectives, I use every day.
    The period has been a wonderful time. Ofcourse the program has great impact on your personal life, but because it’s a program of 15 months it’s possible to do. We had a very nice group and we really met each other through it. Some will remain friends for life. We've been through a lot together. There was always a supporting Program Manager and an Academic Director. I never have had the feeling that I had to do it on my own.”

  • Dirk Jan Bolderheij
    Owner Simulation Experience

    "The Executive Master of Management and Organization (MMO) is the foundation of SimXP, a company owned by Dirk Jan Bolderheij and Axel Vlieth. Both alumni use program theory on a daily basis. Bolderheij: MMO is a recipe book for managers. Certain subjects help develop a broad perspective, while others explore topics in great depth. We now have a clear picture of what’s for sale. This helps when determining and ‘scouting’ out simulations and games." Vlieth: “and also in conversation with companies and organizations. The theory and practical experience mean that we now have an affinity with the strengths and weaknesses in teams and organizations. Enabling us to deliver this to them in a unique and unforgettable manner”

  • Marnix Suijkerbuijk
    Director Divisie Zorg- & Declaratieservice CZ

    “MMO was more than an education for me. Of course it was valuable to anchor receded knowledge from previous studies and subconscious competencies to current theory. The 15-month TIAS pressure cooker was not without private or professional strain. This automatically leads to making choices and setting priorities. When the smoke eventually clears and the dust settles again, you’re able to realize what a development journey you’ve been through. Not only through theory, but personally too. You are literally enriched with experience, perspectives and opinions that will last you a life time”
