TIAS School for Business and Society Utrecht

Utrecht, Netherlands TIAS School for Business and Society
At TIAS School for Business and Society we educate on the guiding principle that today’s insights are not tomorrow’s solutions. So apart from teaching theory, we also focus on developing critical and inquisitive students. An attitude that inspires them to ask the questions that get to the truth of the matter and pursue the answers that will impact organizations, business and society.


TIAS, the business school of Tilburg University and Eindhoven University of Technology, offers a broad and flexible portfolio of internationally recognised management programmes. The motto of TiasNimbas is Never Stop Asking, and this is reflected in programmes that are rooted in leading management research, and designed to address the specific educational needs of individuals and organisations in the evolving world of business.
Studying at TIAS offers a unique experience, informed by:

International Focus: We Bring the World to You

International programme participants, faculty members, partner schools and teaching locations from Tilburg to Taipei translate into a truly international management learning experience. Our students gain cross cultural skills, and build a worldwide network of contacts that will continue to be of benefit long after they have left TiasNimbas.

Diverse Choice of International Degree Offerings

TiasNimbas recognises that people have different needs and commitments. So the diversity of our curriculum is endless:

  • Earn a European, American or British MBA degree;
  • MBA and MScBA offered on a full- or part-time basis;
  • MBA offered as one-year full-time or two-year part-time programme (Tilburg and Utrecht);
  • Programmes flex with your schedule and commitments.
Quality of Faculty

TIAS engages in continuous, intensive knowledge exchange with researchers at Tilburg University and the Eindhoven University of Technology. These eminent professors are part of our teaching faculty, as are an extended network of international experts. Whether you study on a degree programme or an executive non-degree programme, you will learn from faculty members who have a passion for management education.

Quality of Participants

A good management programme is highly interactive: you learn in part through working with your peers as you prepare, present and evaluate projects with them. The quality of a programme, therefore, is dependent upon the quality of its students. Each year TIAS attracts over 2500 high-calibre participants from 60-plus countries, each highly motivated and looking for a new intellectual challenge and a greater international understanding of business management.

Strong Alumni Network

Becoming an alumnus of TIAS is one of the great benefits of our programmes. You become part of a network that includes alumni who figure prominently in well-known organisations throughout the world, including Fortune 500 companies. Our alumni are keen to remain part of the team and may meet up at reunions and events; or at seminars, short courses or electives that keep their management skills top-notch.
