Then International Business Management will be your cup of tea! This bachelor programme is taught entirely in English to an international group of students. Graduates with an international mindset and a thorough knowledge of English are in high demand by employers these days. COACHING AND MENTORING OF STUDENTS We attach great importance to the coaching of our students: the programme starts with a course unit “Talent & Management Development”. Skills such as effective time management, minute taking, planning, organising etc. are not only useful for the future professional life, but also contribute to being successful in higher education. Personal supervision of each student by his/her study coach will complement this course unit throughout the first year. In the following two years, we continue to work on the development of our students, as to fully prepare them for the professional life. Furthermore, all our lecturers are very approachable and are happy to help students with resolving any problems. PRACTICE-ORIENTED Practice orientation is our main priority. We discuss numerous cases and organise company visits, practicals and study trips. Furthermore, we work closely with many different companies, including for the graduation internship (±65 working days). The bachelor project consists of a consultancy assignment that students have to carry out in groups during a period of four months under supervision of experts. The practical sessions that focus on teaching skills and attitudes are held in small groups. The lesson schedule is student-friendly and provides lesson-free moments for self-study, group work and practicals. QUALITY CONTROL We set high quality standards for our students, but also for ourselves. By carefully reviewing the study programme and consulting employers we ensure that our curriculum is closely aligned with the needs of the labour market. This gives our graduates the best chance of job security. INTERNATIONAL CLASSES The students almost naturally acquire intercultural skills because they work together in an international group of students with very diverse backgrounds on a daily basis.
