Are you aiming for a career in business? Do you thrive in an intercultural environment? With an International Business (IB) degree you can.

Our International Business degree teaches you how to be an innovator, an intercultural business communicator and a value-oriented leader. Since every business faces complex challenges, you will tackle multidisciplinary challenges in this programme, as well as learn how to develop data-driven decisions to back up your strategies.

We think it's valuable for you to get out there in the business world as a student. Less research and more of a practical approach is our approved method of preparing students for the international business world. It means that your assignments will deal with real issues in real companies. You will get to work on marketing plans and sales techniques. You will test out entry and organisational strategies. You will learn about accounting and assess the financial performances of companies. You will also create supply chain networks, using the latest digital tools.

Languages are an important part of the education we offer and are one of the unique elements of our university. You will learn at least one foreign language. This will complement your studies and improve your knowledge and cultural understanding when operating across borders.
