TIAS School for Business & Society

At TIAS School for Business and Society we teach from the idea that today's insights are not the solutions of tomorrow. That is why, in addition to transferring knowledge and skills, we emphasize the stimulation of a critical, curious approach. Ask other questions to know how it really works. Look for answers with an impact on organizations, business and society. TIAS is the business school of Tilburg University and Eindhoven University of Technology and has a broad portfolio of part-time masters, MBA courses, master classes and tailor-made solutions.

To all new students out there, congratulations on getting in at TIAS. I’m sure a very eventful year will be awaiting you! You’re probably already in the process of getting to know Utrecht, and studying away at the prep courses (If so, say hi to John Taylor for me).
