Strategy

The Strategy track is one of seven possible specialisation tracks in the Business Administration Master’s programme. It is designed for students who are fascinated by the important choices made by general managers and strategy consultants, such as which markets to enter, how to differentiate a firm from its competitors and how best to design organisational structures and management systems.

  • Customise the programme by choosing from a selection of more than 20 elective courses;
  • prepare for your career with real-world case studies and top-level guest lectures;
  • benefit from a strong research focus, qualified, international staff and fellow students from all over the world.

One Master's programme, seven tracks

The Master's in Business Administration allows you to choose a top-level academic specialisation track in one of seven disciplines.

In addition to a preferred track, you may choose from a wide range of elective courses, like Branding, Leadership, Management Consulting or Sustainability. This gives you the opportunity to tailor the programme precisely to your own personal preferences and skills.

Example from the classroom

Why do some companies outperform others? This is arguably the most important question in strategic management theory and one you will be invited to discuss as part of the Theories of Strategy course. To find its possible answers you will study and reflect upon leading publications that shape current thinking on the subject of competitive strategy. You will subsequently be asked to apply the insights you have gained to evaluate recent cases of high-impact strategic decisions by leading companies.

Career Preparation

You will kick off your studies with ‘UvA in Carré’, a series of inspirational seminars featuring prominent speakers from leading companies such as Ahold Delhaize, Unilever, Vodafone Ziggo, Google and l'Oréal.

Degree

After successful completion of this programme, you will receive an officially accredited Master’s degree in Business Administration and the title Master of Science (MSc).
