Program Description

Your future in International Business

The Netherlands are renowned for their expertise in export and international trade. Trade is expanding across the world, but at the same time the need to look after the future of the earth is becoming more evident. Companies are therefore facing a huge challenge. They need practical people who are capable and daring. Will you become the creative business professional that will help these companies innovate successfully? You will not only find smart solutions for one product, you also understand the bigger picture and coherence. This allows everybody to profit and enables your company to innovate in a sustainable way. So Planet, People and Profit. This is what makes International Business for the Future so different. 

The English-taught program will teach you how to apply business basics in an internationally oriented, sustainable business environment. Intercultural collaboration and organisational behaviour in an international setting, as well as sustainable circular economics are therefore part of your program.

Content program

You will be following objective specific courses, doing practical periods and preparing an exciting graduation assignment. In year three you will do a practical internship in a company of your choice.
