From your second year on you’ll be digging a lot deeper. You’ll be doing training sessions to develop the skills you need to work successfully in an international organization, and the subjects taught in your first year will now be treated in greater depth so as to teach you everything you need as a prospective professional. In the second year of your hbo degree programme of International Business, you will also be doing an internship in a foreign country. In the third year you will follow Study Abroad, which involves six months of study in a foreign country. So you will get a lot of exposure to professional practice. In your fourth year you will specialize in one of the fields of international business and you will complete your studies with a final project demonstrating that you possess all the knowledge and skills required to start a successful career in international business. It’s up to you to decide whether you will be doing your graduation in the Netherlands or abroad. You’ll be conducting research to analyse a practical situation. Based on your research you will come up with some recommendations of practical use to the company.
