Intercultural competence IBSpromotie-5473.jpg

Intercultural competence stands for the effective and appropriate enactment of cultural sensitivity in all business interactions. Intercultural competence is increasingly seen as a precursor for sustainable (business) development. The truly global manager knows how to deal with the different cultural perspectives of its workers, stakeholders and clients, and how to turn this into an added value for the company or organization, as much as for society at large.

In a globalised society where international trade and cooperation between companies, public organisations, and universities is increasing, the international orientation of this master’s programme is vital. In the international classroom, you will know what it is like to work in an international context. You will study with a mixed group of students, consisting of Dutch as well as international students, sharing your specific points of view and learning from their perspective. You will broaden your horizon and expand your international network.
