TIAS School for Business and Society


TIAS, the business school of Tilburg University and the Eindhoven University of Technology, offers a broad and flexible portfolio of internationally recognized management programs. The motto of TIAS is ‘Never Stop Asking’, and this is reflected in programs that are rooted in leading management research, and designed to address the specific educational needs of individuals and organizations in the evolving world of business.

This orientation towards excellence resulted in the Financial Times ranking the Full-Time MBA program 25 in Europe, while The Economist Intelligence Unit’s ‘Which MBA?’ has placed the same program at no. 36 in its worldwide top 100 rankings. But rankings don’t tell the whole story. Studying at TIAS offers a unique experience, informed by:

International Focus: We Bring the World to You

International program 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 TIAS.

Diverse Choice of International Degree Offerings

TIAS recognizes 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 MSc offered on a full- or part-time basis;
  • MBA offered at a one-year, full-time or two-year part-time program (Tilburg, Utrecht, and Bonn);
  • Programs 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 program or an executive non-degree program, you will learn from faculty members who have a passion for management education.

In 2003 the European Economic Review ranked the Tilburg Faculty of Economics as the best research institution in Europe. The Faculty of Economics and Business Administration at Tilburg University has also achieved accreditation by AACSB.

Quality of Participants

A good management program 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 program, therefore, is dependent upon the quality of its students. Each year TIAS attracts over 2500 high-caliber 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 programs. You become part of a network that includes alumni who figure prominently in well-known organizations 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.
