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.


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. Of course, you want to take charge during the various projects you work on. You might, for example, become the general manager of your student company.
