Today, BSN is situated in the picturesque town of Buren in the Netherlands, and continues to expand its provision of Action Learning programmes beyond the boundaries of the Netherlands, creating a global Action Learning community of business leaders, having partners situated in Algeria, Cameroon, China, Czech Republic, Curacao, Egypt, Ghana, Iran, Nigeria, South Africa, Suriname, Tanzania, Turkey, Uganda and Zambia.
Business School Netherlands (BSN) recognises the exponential growth of the body of knowledge. Even enthusiastic students will fail to fathom it all in a lifetime, let alone during a two-year course. That is why we look at the academic part of an MBA- or management programme from a different point of view.
We start with the problem, your problem, a relevant issue that your organisation needs to solve. Once identified, you will learn to critically evaluate available knowledge in the respective field, weigh the alternatives, and propose an appropriate solution. It doesn’t stop there. The Action Learning concept recognises that real learning only takes place when we have implemented the solution and seen the result. Confucius worked it out ages ago: “I hear and I forget. I see and I remember. I do and I understand”
