About this program

BBA in Sustainable Business and Innovations

(Official name of the programme: Global Project and Change Management)
Do you want to change the world and are you looking for an international challenge? Are sustainability, human rights, global health, social responsibility, the increasing divide between rich and poor and global warming themes that you care about? Do you want to contribute personally and professionally to a better world? In our four-year programme we teach you how you can make a difference.

We combine theory and practice, project management, business and research with global issues. The programme consists of courses, real projects with companies from the first year onwards, an international internship and professional career counselling. In the end you'll know how to lead a project team and how to put innovative ideas into practice. You'll become a change maker, aware of your own strengths and ambitions, able to create sustainable value for society.

Global Project and Change Management is a Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA) offered by the Windesheim Honours College.

After graduating, you can start your career for example as a project manager or advisor at governments, NGOs like Red Cross and Doctors without Borders, in slave-free clothing, food industry or for businesses aiming to introduce sustainable production, or you can start your own company as a social entrepreneur.

Nice about this programme is that housing is guaranteed in year 1!
