About the course


Picture yourself at a large football stadium where people want to have a great evening out. Visitors of the match demand a great variety of things at such a large scale event.

As the facility manager, you take care of the parking, catering, security, ticket sales, merchandise sales. All communication between the partner companies who provide these elements to let the game begin is arranged… by you!

Does coordinating and directing all the support services of an organisation or event appeal to you?

As a facility manager you are a team player who ensures that guests feel comfortable and staff can perform well in their work. You know how to deal with (top) management, internal and external customers, suppliers and with your own staff. Facility managers are at the heart of organisations such as hotels, hospitals, offices, airports, catering companies, events companies and consultancy firms worldwide.

Study programme

First year

The first year curriculum is centred around two introduction modules:

  • Knowing the fundamentals of Facility Operations.: This module is an introduction to Operations Management and Management Information Systems in facility management organizations, in combination with practical training in the in-house training company Sibelicious. You will work in several outlets such as catering, service desk, store room, restaurant and kitchen. You organize, cater for, manage and provide service to real customers, who come in daily for lunch, dinner, a meeting or a congress. Next to that, you learn the basic principles of emergency response.
  • Understanding the Facility Management Industry: You will learn how to deal with the basics of Finance, Economics, Marketing, Business Law & Ethics and Investigative Abilities in relation to the facility management industry.

The competencies acquired from these modules will be brought together at the end of the year in a final project. Working in a close-knit group, you will make a prototype or renewal of a facility environment.

Second year

The second and third years consist of three modules:

  • Developing People and Organisations:Take a close look at behavioral aspects of working with people in organisations. (Courses: Oganisational behaviour, Business Law & Ethics, Investigative Abilities and Economics)
  • Managing Business Performance and Innovation: Learn how to deal with customer relations, service marketing and pricing strategies. (Courses: Accounting, Operations Management, Management Information Systems and Marketing)
  • Exploring the International Facility Industry: In this 5 month practical placement you will experience living and working in a real life, cross cultural facility environment abroad. 

Third year

At the core of the third year is the Excellence in Facility Management module. The main focus of this module is strategic management. It examines the corporate strategic possibilities of organisations and encourages you to integrate, at a strategic level, what you have learned in previous courses, based on investigative abilities.

Fourth year

You will write a bachelor’s thesis on a topic of your choice. It is also possible to complete a personalised curriculum component (e.g. a minor, work placement, advisory report, business plan). Under the supervision of a personal coach, you will work on your final thesis, which you will defend at the end of the year.
