The first two years of study in International Business and Management Studies are similar for our specialisations:
- International Marketing
- International Management
- International Finance and Accounting
For detailed information about the IBMS programme, please go to the IBMS Prospectus.
In the first year, each subject provides students with the broad knowledge and the basic skills needed for more specific subjects studied in the subsequent three years of study called the Main Phase. After a compulsory introduction, the programme continues with international business management modules including a foreign language.
Foreign Language (levels 1 & 2 - choose from Dutch, French, German and Spanish)
English Report-Writing Skills
Secondary Research Skills
Excel/Applied Information Processing
Foreign Language (levels 3 & 4 - choose from Dutch, French, German and Spanish)
Business Plan Project
Behaviour, Management & Organisation
English Presentation Skills
Primary Research Skills
In both semesters, students do a project (Consultancy Case/Business Plan) in which they find solutions to complex practically-oriented problems. This is done in small, multi-cultural groups and students will be expected to solve these practical problems before presenting recommendations to your lecturers and fellow students. Supporting this, training in specific skills essential to your future career, such as negotiation skills, providing and receiving feedback, working in groups, delegating and presentation skills are a unique part of the programme.
