Wittenborg University of Applied Sciences


Wittenborg University of Applied Sciences is a so-called “boutique university” - a Business School with a primary focus on management as it relates to disciplines in society. Our personal attention to your education is very important. It is for this reason that we take quality seriously and are accredited by the Dutch Flemish Accreditation organisation (NVAO) and Foundation for International Business Administration Accreditation (FIBAA).

We are a unique business school where “Better Yourself, Better Our World” is our motto.

At Wittenborg our mission is:

To promote excellence in teaching and learning international business and management, as well as to create the best environment for students and staff, where internationalisation, diversity and ethics lay the foundations of successfully applied, research-informed global learning.

With our main campus based in Apeldoorn, we introduce students to organisations in the local area and region, enhancing the region’s economy, cultural and social climate. Our Amsterdam location enables us to support international entrepreneurs coming to the Netherlands, with a tailored, entrepreneurial bachelor’s programme, and our Munich locations offers a unique opportunity to study in two countries. Enter Wittenborg and you enter a highly motivated and results-driven organisation operating in a diverse and multicultural environment, in which more than 100 nationalities work, study, innovate and socialise together. At Wittenborg we believe that learning should be an enjoyable process that allows you to develop your goals and aspirations, and provides you with the constant support and the required study pressure to achieve those targets.

Wittenborg graduates are world citizens; they nurture respect and have a sense of achievement. They have developed ambition and pride themselves in excellence. They are our greatest ambassadors!
