Program description

International Business

Would you like to study in an international atmosphere and work alongside students, faculty and partners from all over the word? Are you interested in global business and
intercultural communication? Are you eager for new experiences? Then the International Business bachelor is the right programme for you! This programme prepares you to become an international business professional who can help internationally operating businesses achieve their goals.

The IB four-year programme consists of lectures and classes, but students also work together in small groups in order to find answers to challenging, yet practical, business-related problems. Group work prepares you for effective communication and cooperation in international business. You will also receive training in professional skills, such as intercultural sensitivity, communication, information management and innovative thinking. Moreover, in your third year you will get the great opportunity to study at one of our partner universities abroad and to complete a work placement at an international company or organisation. At IBS we take a ‘learning by doing’ approach.
This, together with individual coaching, sets us apart from IB programmes at research universities.

Admission requirements

To be admitted to this programme you need a national or an international secondary school diploma. As the programme is taught in English, you may have to prove your English language proficiency, depending on your educational background and nationality.
