Personal impact development
The Full-time MBA program is built around three axes: Academic, Personal and Societal. The aim is to develop your skills and abilities in all three directions and on multiple levels. To make you a better leader – better for you, your team, the environment and society at large. Personal Impact is not only achieved through knowledge, but also through networks, skills and competencies. To help you improve these attributes and make them part of an effective career plan, we offer a Personal and Career Development Program (PCDP).
The aim of the PCDP is to increase your self-awareness; understand who you are as a person, with your unique talents, qualities, drives and values, to establish and work towards your ultimate career goal. One of the key elements is the Personal Leadership Program called ABBY, which stands for Accelerate By Being You. Subsequently, in personal coaching sessions you will deep dive on your learnings and self-discoveries.
Besides, TIAS is well known and highly evaluated on the very personal approach by their career consultants. Each individual student is assigned a personal coach and a career consultant, and the career consultant is available for free career advice up to 3 years after graduation. You will be the starting point for the guidance you might need, to work towards your career goal.
You will understand who you are and what your capabilities are. By focusing on your strengths, you take your capabilities to the next level. To be well prepared for the (Dutch) job market, we will offer you very hands-on “learning labs”, focusing on LinkedIn, targeted CV, networking and job interview.
Improve your communication, presentation and networking skills and expand your network during workshops and company outreach days. In the academic courses you will practice skills and you will learn to speak to inspire.
TIAS is the School for Business and Society. We stimulate our MBA's to view the world from different perspectives, to explore it and to discover new possibilities. The program includes courses on the many challenges at the Business and Society nexus. Both the European as well as emerging economy perspectives are integrated to offer a complete picture of the various challenges in different parts of the world. Site-visits, guest speakers and a visit to the EU parliament in Brussels offers insights into the complexity of international economic and political collaboration and shows the complex interplay of business and government. In our program you deepen the understanding of the links between business and society and the impact you can have as a future leader and manager on society.
