Year 2 and after

You will gradually do more and more projects in your studies. Since your focus is on the international market, you’ll be attending the English-taught programme.

From your second year on you’ll be digging a lot deeper. For all relevant fields of international business, you will attain the advanced level required from an IB Bachelor. This means you will deepen and broaden your knowledge and understanding of Logistics, Sales and Marketing, Finance & Accounting, HRM and of course languages.

The study programme curriculum is characterized by the integration of various subjects, so that the cohesion between the disciplines is clearly visible. Practice also figures more and more prominently in the programme, through company visits and frequent collaboration with businesses for practical research and consulting activities.

From theory to project groups

At the start of your study programme the theory will be presented to you in lectures and seminars. During the course of the programme you will be working more and more on assignments in project groups.

Internship abroad

Starting the second semester of your second year, you’ll be doing your internship abroad. This gives you the opportunity to apply the learned theory and skills into practice.

Study Abroad

This semester involves studying abroad for a minimum period of one semester (not compulsory for non-Dutch students). Studying at a university abroad is not just an unforgettable experience, it is also invaluable to your language skills!

Graduation in the Netherlands or abroad

In your fourth year you will deepen your knowledge by specializing in one of the fields of international business and you will complete your studies with your graduation. It’s up to you to decide if you’re going to do this 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.
