    Programme structure

    A view of the study programme

    Three pillars

    Hogeschool Rotterdam Business School's Master programmes are built on three pillars:

    • The general and specialised modules provides you with the necessary knowledge, skills and competencies of a professional in international business.
    • Research is the focus of the final stage of our programmes. You will complete your studies with the graduation assignment, which should revolve around a project executed for an existing organisation.
    • Personal development is encouraged through a system that invites you to set your own particular study goals - and continually test those choices.

    Study Programme

    The curriculum of the Master Consultancy and Entrepreneurship consists of a number of specialisation courses, master classes and a number of general courses supporting all RBS master students. This ensures a balance between knowledge and skills that is in keeping with the professional work field.


    The specialisation courses are structured according to Milestones that need to be achieved. After an introduction period you choose your main subject in either consultancy or entrepreneurship. 

    The consultancy learning completes with a business case for a real life customer. The milestones are:

    1. Get your first customer
    2. Issue analysis
    3. Proposal
    4. The Business Case ready for Customer’s approval

    The entrepreneurship learning stream completes with business plan. The milestones are:

    1. Get your business idea and your first potential customer
    2. Opportunity analysis
    3. Proposal
    4. Business Plan ready for venture capitalist funding

    This way of teaching not only makes the programme unique, but also shows the typically Rotterdam"roll up your sleeves and get cracking" mentality.

    Expert Staff

    Our lecturers are a reflection of the international classroom. You will be taught by a multinational mix of experts in the field of Consultancy and Entrepreneurship. Our lecturers have years of professional experience in multinational organisations and hold at least one Masters or Doctoral degree. This combination of academic knowledge and practical experience provides you with the benefit of seeing how theory is applied in practice.
