Does working in a hotel, hospital, the event, catering or security business appeal to you? Or, alternatively, working as a purchasing, project, services or workplace manager? Is creating a sustainable and healthy (work) environment your goal? Then International Facility Management at Hanze University of Applied Sciences, Groningen, is the right programme for you.

International Facility Management (IFM) is a unique programme that literally broadens your horizons. This is because of the wide range of topics studied, global perspective and international experience. All this makes for an immense personal development. The combination of all aspects results in excellent career opportunities at management level. The IFM programme is accredited by the International Facility Management Association (IFMA), the world’s largest and most widely recognized association for FM professionals.

People skills are important in your future career as well as during your education at our school. Personal development including learning how to function in a team is guided by a coach. The coach also facilitates students in choosing their own international path.

The IFM curriculum consists of four years, each of which is composed of two semesters. Every semester takes twenty weeks and deals with one specific theme. Theory is assessed by exams, projects, presentations and assignments which are related to the theme of the semester. They are either carried out individually or in project groups consisting of students from different countries.
