The MBA at UvA
The Universiteit van Amsterdam, or UvA, is indeed a crown jewel of the Dutch educational landscape. It enjoys a "triple crown" accreditation, bestowed by three independent rating agencies. The Amsterdam Business School (ABS) offers three MBA paths. As one of the younger MBA programs in the Netherlands, ABS is finding traction for its focused programmes in Data Science and Healthcare, as well as small classes and a friendly teacher-student ratio. As an accredited program, 60% of its classes are taught by UvA full-time staff.
The cutoff GMAT score for an MBA is 630. Each year there are one or two exceptions, but the stories attached to those cases are truly exceptional. Think of building a $140 million-dollar business, for the most recent example of what it takes to get in with a lower score. The Amsterdam MBA start-date is in early September, and ABS operates a rolling admissions scheme, which means you can apply throughout the year up to the June 1st deadline.
