The Bachelor's programme in International Business Communication is a challenging English-taught programme in which you combine the study of communication processes in (international) organisations with the study of a foreign language (English, French, German, or Spanish). The BA IBC programme at Radboud University offers a combination of communication studies and business-oriented foreign-language courses. In the courses you will gain insight into (intercultural) communication, marketing communication and management, so as to prepare you for a (communication) career in the international business world.

Radboud’s foreign language programme

The Nijmegen Bachelor's in International Business Communication provides you with a unique and exciting opportunity to study communication and organisation in combination with a foreign language (English, French, German or Spanish).
