Doing Business in the World

Doing business in the world

(Autumn)

Do you want to learn how to get a solid background for doing business internationally? Do you want to learn how to analyze a global company, researching trends and issues in the environment? Join our International Business Studies exchange programme 'Doing Business In the World' and learn how to make a difference in business! 

Delivering a good project result under time pressure, will bring intercultural differences to the surface. Working in a multicultural setting or international company therefore requires flexibility to handle the differences in language skills, knowledge and cultural backgrounds. You will learn and gain these skills during this exchange programme.

About the programme

This programme aims to provide students with a solid background for doing business internationally. The working language is English. The central focus of this programme is a project; you will work on analyzing a global company and research trends and issues in its environment. Together with other students you form an international project group. Theoretical modules provide a theoretical background for completing the project. 

Practice oriented 

In a practice-oriented environment, students learn how to work together and make practical use of theoretical knowledge.

Multicultural 

Students study in a multicultural environment, which helps them develop intercultural skills and understand norms and values unlike their own.

Real-life projects

Your team will analyze a multinational company from the International Forbes global 2000 list. These global companies are very large; more than 100,000 employees and an annual turnover of $20 billion or more, like Nike, Nokia, Shell, Apple or Coca Cola.

Training sessions in multicultural business skills (meeting and presentation skills) allow you to work effectively in an international business environment. You will experience working with people from different countries and cultural backgrounds - something highly valuable in today's workplace.
