International Business


International Business is a highly innovative and flexible course. It is especially designed to let you experience the real world of international business. Start studying International Business and you will step right into this dynamic and fast paced world. A world where no 2 days are the same.

During your 1st year you get a solid foundation in all areas of international business. From the 2nd year you specialise in one of the following: 

  • Finance
  • Management
  • Marketing & Sales
  • Supply Chain Management

These specialisations reflect the needs of the market. So when you graduate, your skills will be in high demand.

Practical international experience

The International Business course is all about gaining experience in the real world. That’s why you spend a semester studying abroad in your 3rd year. You can do this at one of our many international partner universities.

In your 3rd year, you also do a semester-long work placement. This is done at an internationally oriented company in the Netherlands or abroad. The work placement gives you valuable experience in the corporate world. And it vastly improves your language and communication skills.

Finally, in your 4th year, you complete a graduation assignment. This involves doing research for an internationally oriented company.

Arnhem Business School

International Business is part of Arnhem Business School. The school has a lively and very friendly international community. During your first semester, student mentors help you settle in.
