Hogeschool van AmsterdamGo to sponsors website
The Hogeschool van Amsterdam, University of Applied Sciences (HvA) is one of the largest institutes for higher professional education in The Netherlands. HvA mainly offers bachelor degree programmes, but also has a number of (professional) master degree programmes.
Since the 17th century, Amsterdam has been an international centre of finance and trade. Its central location, close to Amsterdam Schiphol Airport and the port, makes it the ideal gateway to Europe. It is an attractive place for business to settle, which is why it has drawn many international companies. Amsterdam has excellent connections, through airways, train lines and highways, to other European cities. Brussels, Paris, Madrid and Berlin can be reached within a matter of hours.
Amsterdam is an international centre of knowledge. Its wide range of educational organisations, research institutions and academic hospitals attract many highly educated professionals. Amsterdam's economy is growing, mainly due to the increasing number of companies working in the creative sector.
HvA has matched its programme offerings to these developments. In addition, Amsterdam's labour force is multilingual, which is a direct consequence of it's internationally oriented economy and multicultural social fabric. And that is a major advantage for companies whose operations and services span the globe.
Amsterdam is also a junction for Internet and data transfer. The city is investing in high-speed data networks such as Netherlight. Furthermore, the Amsterdam Internet Exchange (AMS-IX) in the Amsterdam Science Park is one of Europe's largest independent Internet hubs. This cutting-edge infrastructure attracts innovative IT companies, which is not only a catalyst for cooperation between research institutes and high-tech companies, but also leads to innovation.
Working together with or studying at the Hogeschool van Amsterdam, University of Applied Sciences is an opportunity to benefit from a knowledge-intensive, internationally-oriented environment in which everyone is given the chance to make the most of their abilities and ambitions.
