About the UUBC

The Utrecht University Business Course was founded in 2013 by three students. They perceived a gap in linking practice to theory in the current master curriculum. To fill this gap, they founded this honours programme that aims to bring students closer to real working experience.


The organisation of Utrecht University Business Course consists of organising staff – a student board, professors, and alumni. The organising staff is primarily responsible for the course’s programme and its operations. They are supported by a supervisory board, which provides input and direction for the execution of the program and long-term vision.
