The International Business (IB) programme prepares you to become a business professional with a global mindset, who is ready to add value to international busines and society.

The IB 3-year programme is designed for students with a higher secondary school education (Dutch vwo, International Baccalaureate or international equivalent). Besides learning about fundamental areas of business, such as Marketing, Finance, Supply Chain, and HRM, you will also develop your professional skills, including intercultural sensitivity, information management and communication. To deepen your cultural awareness and broaden your international horizon you will spend a full year abroad that includes a semester at a partner university and an international work placement.

Compressing the International Business programme in 3 years instead of 4, requires ambition and a strong commitment to self-study. From the second year onwards, you will follow the same programme as the 4-year bachelor.
