Why study International Business and Management Studies at Hanze University of Applied Sciences?

The International Business and Management Studies (IBMS), offered by the International Business School at Hanze University of Applied Sciences, is a four-year undergraduate programme. Upon completion, graduates receive a Bachelor of Business Administration degree in one of the following majors:

  • International Marketing
  • International Management
  • International Finance and Accounting
  • International Travel and Tourism

The degree programme is taught entirely in English. However, students are encouraged to learn second or a third language.

Out of the approx. 1000 students studying IBMS, more than half come from outside The Netherlands. In total, approximately 55 different nationalities are represented. A balance is sought between theoretical and practical knowledge in order to prepare our students for todays global economy.

The highlight for many students is the year abroad.

In addition to learning theory about business subjects and working in internationally mixed project groups, you will gain valuable practical experience. As part of your full year abroad, you can do a six-month placement at a company such as Hugo Boss in New York. Then, in your final year, you will round off your major, followed by a graduation project at, for example, the Marketing and Sales Department of Coca Cola in Berlin. One thing is clear: by the end of your studies you will already have two job experiences to add to your CV!

For your study abroad, take advantage of the contacts IBS has with over 50 partner universities worldwide. The sky is the limit! Besides gaining more independence and improving your international flexibility, you will have the opportunity to develop your foreign language skills to perfection.

Research among graduates has shown that the average amount of time spent on searching for a job is as little as two months. Many graduates are offered jobs with their placement company or the company for which they did their final graduation project. We are even contacted directly by international companies that are looking for our graduates.
