Admission requirements for the Executive Master of Information Management

  • a relevant bachelor's or master's degree
  • At least completed higher professional education and at least three years of relevant work experience in the real estate industry

In order to guarantee the quality of the group of participants, a preliminary interview with our teachers is part of the admission procedure.

Premaster 

If you have completed an HBO program (higher professional education), successful completion of the premaster is a prerequisite for starting the program. In this way, we ensure that the level of all participants is consistent with each other. This means that you will ultimately benefit from the collaboration with a motivated group of talented participants from the healthcare field.

Business Research Methods

Business Research Methods (BRM) is part of your Master's degree. This module will help you make better decisions in situations where a solution to a problem is not immediately obvious because you are missing some of the information. 

For students doing an entire Master's program at TIAS, both BRM modules are mandatory. We recommend doing BRM I at the start of your Master's and BRM II at the end, just before graduation. Talk to your Program Adviser about the best time to schedule BRM I into your personal learning path.
