Pre-Master Programme

6 month preparation programme

The Pre-Master Programme is an ideal preparation programme for the English-taught Master programmes at Rotterdam Business School.

Our Pre-Master RBS Programme is designed to prepare you for one of our English-taught Master programmes: Consultancy and Entrepreneurship & International Supply Chain Management, or Shipping & Transport. By taking classes such as Business English Skills and the Specialisation and Supplementary courses you will build a solid foundation of business knowledge for your Masters studies.

We offer the 6 month preparation programme to students with both a business and non-business related bachelor degree. Based on the diploma you have, you are required to have work experience and an English level test. Check out the admission requirements page to find out more. 

The level of application of this knowledge increases throughout the course with students making presentations, writing business reports, developing research skills, working on projects with external companies and taking part in an online business simulation using real-time economic conditions. Emphasis is placed on the value of team-work, self-reflection, and personal development. The assessment process, guidance and expertise of lecturers will prepare you well for one of the Master programmes.

The 6-month programme commences in both February and September

Additional benefits of the Pre-Master programme

Successful completion of the Pre-Master programme will lead to:

  • A certificate for the Pre-Master RBS Programme.
  • An exemption from the English requirement.

Please note: As of September 2022 intake, the former 12 month Pre-Master programme will not be offered anymore. RBS will therefore proceed with 6 month versions of the Pre-Master programme only. If you have questions regarding your options and if you are admissible please check the admission requirements page
