Seminars are the most important component of the Master’s specialisation. For these intensive courses, active participation and strong commitment are a must. Lecturers will present insightful stories during classes and guest lecturers with a proven marketing track record are happy to share their experience with you.
You will be expected to present excerpts of literature or case applications, ask questions, express doubts, and share ideas in class discussions. This starts immediately in block 1 when you will follow three courses (4 credits each). The seminar in block 2 (12 credits) involves a marketing strategy simulation game to teach students about market research and its connection with marketing strategy decision-making.
In block 3 you can choose a seminar in order to specialise in a topic of your interest (e.g. marketing analytics or global marketing).
In block 4 students choose two electives (4 credits) taught by the Marketing Department and one other Economics and Business Master’s course (4 credits).

Studying in a foreign country can be very expensive. Fortunately, the Dutch government subsidizes higher education which leads to lower tuition fees for students with a nationality from a country belonging to the European Economic Area (EEA). In recent years, more and more students from outside the EEA have decided to study in the Netherlands, resulting in a growing demand for academic scholarships. Below you can find the few scholarships that might be applicable to you.
Erasmus Education Fund
Every academic year, the Erasmus Education Fund (EEF) supports several students with a scholarship of 3000 euro's per year. The EEF is only for excellent students who need provable financial support. Students may apply by following the application procedure for the EEF.
Erasmus School of Economics Student Waiver for excellent students from non-EEA countries
The Erasmus School of Economics has created a separate fund to support excellent students. The maximum award of the waiver consists of a tuition fee waiver for the year 2016-2017. Resulting in a tuition fee equal to the statutory fee. Current or prospective students who are awarded this waiver will therefore not themselves directly receive a sum of money.
