International Business is an English-taught study programme that focuses on a wide range of subjects related to doing business internationally, such as:
- supply chain management
- foreign languages
If you are interested in a fascinating and challenging job that involves a great deal of international exposure and business contacts all over the world, International Business will be an excellent starting point for a dynamic and international career.
Lower tuition fee for first-year students
If it is the first time you are enrolling in a bachelor's degree programme, then you may be eligible to pay only half of the statutory tuition fees for the first year when you are an EU-citizen.
To come to an acceptable end result, you will not only need factual knowledge on subjects like finance, marketing, operations and supply chain management but as a professional-to-be, you also need to develop certain skills. By working on a real-life business challenge, you will for example learn how to co-operate, communicate, do research, analyze and think critically with intercultural awareness. Our coaches will guide you and your fellow students through the process.
Real-life business cases
International Business takes a hands-on approach to learning, by continuously combining theory and practice during the entire study programme. This means that all modules are centered around a real-life business case, presented to us by existing (international) companies or organizations. You will be asked to solve a company’s business problem in groups with fellow students from all stages of the study programme. Supported by experts on the underlying theory, you will do research on the subject and develop a plan for your customer.
Second foreign language
Since our study programme is fully taught in English, your language and communication skills will reach a high level during the programme. Besides English you will study a second (foreign) language as part of an Intercultural Business Line focusing on doing business in either German, French or Spanish speaking countries, Asia or the Euregion.
Intercultural Business Lines
An Intercultural Business Line - an ongoing four-year course - teaches you about the culture of the geographical region of your choice and how this affects business in that region. In the first year you will choose one out of the five. Your choice allows you to specialize yourself in a specific geographical region. Language classes are part of the line to enhance your language skills and study the cultural aspects.
