Business Schools Ranking in Netherlands

Western Europe

The Netherlands higher education system is a binary system, composed of Wetenschappelijk Onderwijs (WO which is more research-oriented and traditionally offered by universities) and Hoger Beroepsonderwijs (HBO – professional higher education, traditionally offered by hogescholen). WO programmes provide education and research in a wide range of disciplines: language and culture, behaviour and society, economics, law, medical and health sciences, natural sciences, engineering and agriculture. In addition, there is the Open Universiteit (OU – Open University) which offers fully recognized university degree courses through distance learning. Internationaal Onderwijs (IO) (international education), generally conducted in English, is mainly designed to meet the needs of Foreign students. Since September 2002, the higher education system in the Netherlands has been organized around a three-cycle degree system consisting of bachelor, master and PhD degrees. At the same time, the ECTS system (European Credit Transfer System) was implemented as a mean to quantify all higher education study programs.
