Vision on learning

Grow with challenging education at TIAS Business School

Do you see yourself as one of tomorrow’s leaders? Someone who will transform business, engage stakeholders and make an impact by assuming responsibility for your own actions and environment? TIAS helps you grow by offering you new, challenging perspectives on the development of strategies and innovative, future-proof business models.

A transformation mindset for business and society

As a School for Business and Society, our mission is ‘to develop leaders to serve society by transforming business.’ We believe that transformation is the only possible solution to the challenges of our time. Our educational offerings aim to stimulate and promote the development of a transformation mindset.

Integration of business and society

Our programs systematically incorporate Business and Society. Instead of offering separate courses on business and societal issues, we aim to include such content in our existing courses. To that end, we have designed a TIAS Business and Society Competency Framework. This framework consists of four competency areas, which you will encounter repeatedly throughout the program: Responsible Leadership, Collaboration, Business Modeling and Sustainable Innovation.

A powerful combination

Each of the four competency areas covers three competencies. Every competency is defined by indicators relating to knowledge, skills and behavior. Each competency area is important, of course. Combining all four of them, however, is what will enable you to transform your business and make an impact as one of tomorrow’s leaders.

Learning with impact

Experiences of participants

Alumnus Paul_Ticheler “I've been working in real estate for twenty years. Real estate involves much more than just building, and I wanted to learn more about this. In my search for a renowned study program, TIAS stood out because of its modular design. I have a busy job and this allows me to choose my own study times. This is what appealed to me in TIAS right away. The Master of Real Estate is an all-round management degree. I've gained some surprising insights working with other professionals. The intensive contact with the program manager is great. I am not a number.”

- Paul TichelerDeputy Director of the Janssen de Jong Business Premises Cluster



 Alumna Sanne van Heteren “The Master of Management and Organization is demanding, but you'll get out of it what you put in. I was looking for ways to further develop myself outside of work and found it at TIAS. The study modules are easily applicable in practice. By using simulations, you quickly find out whether a certain strategy works. There is plenty of personal contact due to the small-scale set-up of the program. My work involves a lot of deadlines. They can interfere with studying – that's why it's great that TIAS allows you to study at your own pace.”
