Netherlands Business Academy (NLBA) is a fully accredited top level Business School. The university started in 1982, and after some merges and several organizational changes it has been in the current structure since 2009. 

NLBA is a business school that was founded as an answer to the needs of life-long-learning. More and more business people felt the necessity to train themselves. Modern times made it important to share best practices and make science available and applicable to the world of business. Specific areas of expertise of NLBA are programs for Finance, Business and Mediation. NLBA was active in the EU funded project ‘Strengthening the European Identity by Culture, Heritage and Citizenship’. In this project NLBA worked with five European top institutes on developing a MBA Culture, Heritage and Citizenship. All experiences on international communication and integration are used in this new project Interadis. NLBA has been working with universities in Ukraine since 1999 and therefore understands the culture and needs of the universities. 

Because of the strong position in the Dutch market NLBA has an extensive network of partner organizations in the Netherlands and abroad.
