Are you interested in understanding the challenges international companies face, and how they deal with such challenges? Then this programme might just be what you are looking for.
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 centers on real-world examples of international business 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.
Important to know: The BSc International Business is a fixed quota programme (numerus fixus) accepting 550 students. The application deadline is 15 January 2021. You will need to take part in the selection procedure.
Please visit the Faculty website to find specific information about online and on-campus activities, and your study start in September 2020.
International Business- the best choice for my interests and my future.
I chose to study International Business because I always thought
that it would be the best choice for my interests and my future,
and indeed it is. This program allows you to have a broader
understanding of both the international environment around you and
the changes that are continuously happening to our global economy.
This program provides you with a broad background in a lot of
fields, such as economy, human behaviour and many more.
What I like about living in Groningen is that it looks like a smaller, cuter and safer Amsterdam. Also, despite the size, there is always something to do and somewhere to go. The canals are amazing and the people as well, also because it is mainly a student city.
The perfect place to study.
After spending a semester abroad in the USA, I was sure that I want to study business and that I would like to continue studying in English. When I visited Groningen, I knew that this would be the perfect place to study. The International Business programme met my expectations. The programme is challenging in a positive way. I believe that it is important to have variety in your studies. Both the lectures and tutorials help us to get a broader understanding of the subjects. The students here are talking English in their daily life and are surrounded by people from all over the world. During tutorials, we work in multicultural groups and this prepares us for succeeding in an international company surrounding. For one of the presentations, I worked together with students from Cyprus, Russia and the Netherlands. In short, beautiful, exciting, loving and in my opinion, the perfect place to study.
