Windesheim Honours College
Launched in 2009, Windesheim Honours College offers a four year programme in international project management. After the first year students will choose a specialization in either Communication & Media or Public Health. Upon successful completion of the programme students will receive an internationally recognized bachelor degree in Business Administration (BBA).
Windesheim Honours College is the first residential college at a University of Applied Sciences in the Netherlands. During the first two years of the programme students will study and live together with fellow students in the student residence. Windesheim Honours College challenges and motivates students to work hard and make the most of your study. Teaching at the College is based on experiential learning; you learn by doing, for instance during real life projects. In the most recent Dutch National Student Survey (2012) our programme received an exceptional high score. With a Windesheim Honours College bachelor degree students are prepared for an international career as a (junior) project manager or consultant, ready to change the world in a structural and realistic way.
The college is quite small scale, with classes not exceeding 25 students. We aim to attract different nationalities of both Staff and students.
