The Master's Foundation Programme is an ideal preparation programme for the English-taught Master programmes at Rotterdam Business School.
Our Master's Foundation Programmes are designed to prepare you for one of our three English-taught Master programmes: Master in Finance and Accounting, Consultancy and Entrepreneurship or Logistics Management. By taking classes such as Business English Skills and the Specialisation and Supplementary courses you will build a solid foundation of business knowledge for your Masters studies.
The level of application of this knowledge increases throughout the course with students making presentations, writing business reports, working on projects with external companies and taking part in an online business simulation using real-time economic conditions. Emphasis is placed on the value of team-work, self-reflection, and personal development.
