Ever since it was founded in 1880, Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam has been known for its distinctive approach to knowledge. VU is an open organization, strongly linked to people and society. Within the Faculty of Economics and Business Administration, the Spatial Information Lab (SPINLab) coordinates the UNIGIS Amsterdam study programmes.
The UNIGIS Amsterdam Programme offers ample opportunities for professionals to acquire knowledge and skills in the field of GIS, within their existing organisation as well as to increase job mobility. The part-time distance-learning programmes on academic Master-level combine well with work and private life. In short:
Our students can be found applying their knowledge and training as technicians, researchers, lecturers, surveyors, marketers, managers and in many other positions. Students have found the course to open new horizons not only in the boundaries of their current employment, but also beyond.
