The Netherlands are considered to be probably the most international gateway to Europe. Since the middle ages, the Netherlands were the trading capital of Europe with strong harbours and a trade minded-people. To this day, they still are. One of the reasons is this country?s openness and ability to adapt easily. Almost everyone speaks and understands English. That makes the Netherlands the choice for head offices of numerous international companies.

Tias Business School has campuses in both Tilburg and Utrecht. Utrecht lies in the centre of the Netherlands and has been one of the cultural and knowledge centres since Roman times. With its canals and historic centre, Utrecht looks like a small version of Amsterdam. Life in Utrecht (pop. 280.000, of which 65.000 are students) is safe, quite relaxed but still with a vibrant social and cultural life.

The Tias Tilburg campus is situated on the University of Tilburg campus. Modern and compact with cyber café?s, e-learning centres, hypermodern library, it?s an oasis in the middle of a small forest. The whole campus has wireless internet.

Both campuses are located in the middle of the Netherlands. Easy to reach and easy to travel from. A one or two hour drive gets you into Amsterdam, Brussels or Cologne. Easy fast trains connect you to Paris and Brussels. Schiphol Airport, the gateway to Europe, is at approximately one hour by train or car. And Rotterdam Airport, Eindhoven Airport or Weeze Airport with their budget airlines are easy to reach.


We will help you find suitable housing or lodging in Tilburg. So that you can experience the vibrant city life at its best. Prices & facilities may vary depending on room size. Contact us for more information.
