- How can I apply for a programme at SBE?
You can register for a study programme via Studielink. In Studielink, you will have to indicate which programme you would like to register for.
If you are registered in a Dutch municipality, you can only register using your DigiD. If you do not yet have a DigiD, you will need to request one. If you do not (yet) live in the Netherlands, you still register via Studielink, but you will not be able to use DigiD. Instead, you create a Studielink account yourself and UM will check your personal details.

- How does the application process work?
Everyone with a bachelor’s degree (also from a university of applied sciences) can apply for the master’s programmes. Provided that you submit a complete file with all the minimum required scores, your file will be assessed by the Board of Admissions. The Board of Admissions evaluates the quality of your application by looking at your GMAT score, IELTS/TOEFL score (if applicable), Grade Point Average, the level of statistics and mathematics and at how well your bachelor’s programme corresponds with the MSc programme. Besides this, they look at your motivation, relevant work experience, international experience and extra-curricular activities. Based on this information the Board of Admissions will decide whether you can be admitted to the programme or not.
Please find the specific requirements on our website, under the section 'Admission requirements'.
- I submitted my application before the application deadline. When can I expect to receive a decision from the Board of Admission?
Assessment of your file happens on a rolling basis. This means that, once you submit a complete file with all the minimum required scores, it will be presented to the Board of Admission. We will not wait until the deadline before we present your file to the Board. You will receive a decision within 2-4 weeks after completion of your file.
- Do you offer pre-master programmes?
A pre-master's programme for International Business is currently under development. This pre-master's programme is a transfer programme for students of Universities of Applied Sciences who wish to obtain a university Master's degree in International Business. The aimed starting date of the pre-master's programme is February 2020.
Interested in this pre-master? You can find more information on this webpage and fill out the form order to receive updates on the development.
For the other master's programmes, we do not offer a pre-master's programme yet.
- I would like to withdraw my application. What should I do?
If you are sure you will not further pursue your application, we kindly advise you to withdraw your application via Studielink.
- Can I defer my place?
Deferments are possible for the same master’s programme. If you are admissible to a master’s programme, your admission for that programme will remain valid for one year. If you want to apply for the next starting moment, you will again need to submit an application via Studielink and MyUM. We will be able to process the decision then, you do not need to upload the documents again.
