Bachelor in International Business
You look beyond borders and are interested in economics, marketing and business. The International Business study programme will prepare you for a managerial role in an international organisation.
A large multinational wants to tap into a new market in Brazil. You give the management advice on marketing. Or a mobile phone manufacturer wants to relocate some of its production to Eastern Europe. You research the options and write a business plan.
As an international business manager, you can advise on all sorts of business matters. Like communication, marketing, trade, sales or finance. You approach international business issues from various perspectives and resolve them.
You are open-minded about other cultures. You are independent, but a team player at the same time. And you are adventurous and self-motivated. You take an interest in international businesses, how they are organised and how they can improve.
