International Business Management Bachelor's degrees

Overview

Commerce makes the world go 'round. That involves establishing international contacts, doing business and spatting - or creating - opportunities. The International Business Management degree programme brings you a step closer to international success.
You might, for example, work as an account manager, a financial manager or a sales or district manager. You can also start your own business.

Is this bachelor programme right for you?

Tio’s International Business Management bachelor programme is based on the International Business (IB) programme and places additional focus on finance and e-commerce. This means you will also feel right at home in the finance and online world after completing this bachelor programme. Do you recognise yourself in the following description? Are you:

  • Competitive?

    Do you have the will to score? You stay on top of international developments and are always one step ahead of the latest trends. You have contacts all over the world and use your knowledge as the manager of a multinational, as an independent entrepreneur or an adviser during a corporate takeover. Your winner mentality ensures your organisation is successful.

  • Interested in trading on the stock exchange?

    Do you want to know everything about bonds, shares, options and futures? Step by step, you learn everything you need to know to take your first steps as an investor on the stock market. In the spirit of competition, the three students with the best results can win a sum of money during the Stocks & Bonds project.

  • Good with numbers and figures?

    How is it that this week’s revenue figures are so much lower than last week’s? You could not help but notice the decline in the statistics. Does it have to do with the season or is there something more going on? The International Business Management bachelor’s degree teaches you to understand these numbers and take appropriate action.

  • Internationally oriented?

    Would you like to work in an international environment? This bachelor programme allows you to see more of the world! During the international study trip, you visit a partner university and international companies. You gain international professional experience during your (international) internships.

  • Entrepreneurial?

    Do you see opportunities wherever you go? Would you like to start up your own business? This business programme lets you get started right away. Together with your fellow students, you set up your own business and advise other organisations regarding their strategy and operations.  

  • Interested in other cultures?

    The world runs on trade and you want to be a player on the international stage. Even during your studies, you will therefore come into contact with different cultures during the study trip, your international internship(s) or when you study abroad. You will learn how to successfully do business in other countries.  

  • In control?

    Do you like to be in charge? Do you see yourself in a leadership position? During this bachelor programme, your leadership skills are developed during the Management Skills course.
