Programme in brief

In times of increasing global competition many companies operate globally or consider doing business internationally. But how do you decide on which markets to operate? How do you finance such undertakings? How do you hire the right internationally qualified employees? How do you make your product or service stand out from the crowd? These are some of the issues that managers at international companies face and for which you will be prepared during International Business (IB). The studies International Business is offered at either the Venlo Campus or the Eindhoven Campus.

More about this programme

What to expect from us

We train you to become an independent manager with knowledge of various fields; from marketing to management, from human resource to accounting. We teach you everything you need to know about running a business. The IB course is an international experience! You study with students from all over the world. This gives you an advantage over other students, because you already have a lot of experience with working with people from different cultural backgrounds. You also do two internships at companies abroad and you work on projects for international companies.

What do we expect from you

As a future student of IB you should be open to challenges and have a critical mind. Both being able to work independently and willingness to work in multicultural teams are preconditions for a successful study career. Here, an affinity to foreign languages with a special focus on English is desirable. What’s more, as a future IB student you should be particularly interested in different cultures and have a special desire to explore all facets of an organization. Most will therefore be striving for a career in internationally oriented companies.
