We live in exciting times offering as many challenges as opportunities. Hence, we need enterprising, spirited and creative professionals who are able to translate their power and passions into future-oriented and innovative solutions.
We aim to lay the foundation by creating an inspiring learning environment, embedded in a unique campus, placing great emphasis in personal development, interactive teaching and practical relevance.
Experience meets entrepreneurship
The in collaboration of the SRH Group and the Global School for Entrepreneurship established institution offers students innovative teaching and learning concepts that encourage professional and personal growth.
Decades of experience in education, research and knowledge transfer within an entrepreneurial setting have led to optimized academic programs, designed to offer the best possible preparation for the desired field of work.
We want you to expand your horizon and surpass yourself by placing independent and active learning at the heart of everything we do.
Culture of entrepreneurship
Our students are encouraged to develop their own ideas.
That’s why entrepreneurship meanders like a red thread through all of our programs, ensuring our students come into early contact with topics surrounding the foundation of a business.
The unique ecosystem, including an incubator hub in the Cupola of Haarlem, will additionally provide perfect conditions by offering a specialized network as well as supporting infrastructure.
Learning instead of teaching
We ensure that the active learner takes the centre stage.
Small study groups, authentic professional tasks and theme-centered five-week blocks enable project-oriented working and learning, creating the best possible prerequisites for personal and professional growth.
To be consistent, our instructors will also take on a completely new role by moving away from simply imparting knowledge to serving as learning coaches and role models for the students.
Self-determination and independence
We believe students have the right to direct their own lives.
That’s why our educational concept implies a high degree of self-determination, leading to greater independence and self-advocacy of our students.
Our highly flexible programs are only one important piece of the puzzle.
Hybrid learning, practice-oriented case studies, real-life assessments and a flat hierarchy round off the system, ensuring our students are able to develop freely.
