Bachelor in International Business and Trade Short Programme (English)

General

Program Description

Do you dream of an international career in business? And do you already have a bachelor’s or master’s degree in tourism, hospitality or another field of study? Then this short programme will allow you to obtain a second bachelor’s degree in just one year!

Programme

After this one-year course, you will think in business models, know more about the economic makeup of different continents and will be able to analyse economic data with ease.

Semester 1

During the first semester, you will gain more insight in a broad range of subjects related to international business including finance, management, economics, export, supply chain, ERP and so much more.

Semester 2

The focus in the second semester is largely on real live practice. You will first gain international experience during an internship abroad to complete the programme with a thesis proving that you can carry out independent research in your own area of interest.

Practice makes perfect

In this short programme, you will take all courses in English, together with international students. This will allow you to improve your interpersonal and communication skills, preparing you to operate effectively in the globalised business world of the 21st century.

All questions about your individual study programme, exemptions or credits can be directed to the study counselor Kristel Van Leuven. Do you need study advice? Your study coach Christina Hermans is there to guide you.

Go International

Through this programme, you can gain international experience anywhere in the world. In the past students have done internships in the US, China, Malaysia, South Africa, Brazil, Dubai, France, Germany, Russia, Mexico, ...

Finding a job

After graduation, the world will be at your feet. Both SME and multinational companies with international ambitions are potential employers. With good training in international entrepreneurship, some of our students even start their own company. Last year a Thomas More-alumnus won a prize for best start-up of the year.

Consultancy or advisory functions for companies linking investors to different cultures are also within your reach. A few examples of potential employers: Brussels airport, DB Schenker, DHL, Flanders Investment & Trade, CS&A, Chambers of Commerce or P&G.
