What will I learn?

The Bachelor's degree programme in International Business prepares you for a management position in an international environment. You will combine courses in Business Management with courses in Sociology, Economics and Law.

The programme has an international focus. It uses international cases and you will study abroad for one semester. In addition, the entire programme is taught in English.

International Business in Groningen is challenging and fast-paced. You need to be hard-working, have a good command of English and be able to understand mathematical expressions, quantitative research methods and economics. Most importantly, however, you need to be deeply interested in the very broad range of issues that make doing business different from country to country. Learning from lecturers and fellow students of diverse nationalities is therefore essential.

Why study this programme in Groningen?

International Business is an internationally accredited programme, ensuring a high-quality education that meets both the AACSB and EQUIS standards, which only one percent of universities reach worldwide. The programme is about business theories as well as organisations and their settings.

It is the intellectual understanding and their sensitivity to differences in perceptions and approaches that equips international business students to correctly analyse situations and to determine effective responses. You will be challenged to approach various business cases from different economic, cultural, legal and political perspectives. In your 3rd year, you will spend a semester abroad at one of our international partner universities.
