Career Services

Finding a job depends on a lot of various different factors : how actively the student searches, what the student is looking for, how flexible the student is, whether the student uses all the career tools MSM provides, how hard-working the student is, as well as past experiences (work, international exposure, volunteering, internships, education).

Besides being one of the only European countries fluent in English, the Netherlands has one of the more open policies in Europe for encouraging foreign students to come work in the Netherlands since there is a high demand for foreign student expertise. After completing the Master in Management or MBA, students are allowed to stay in the country for a whole year after completing your studies to search for a job (https://www.hollandalumni.nl/career/work-in-holland/orientation-year)
