DDM China and the World Economy

Linking education to research and career preparation

Our education is strongly rooted in business practice and society. Also right from the start of your degree programme attention is paid to academic research and preprofessional development. Since an analytical and critical mind and problem-solving capabilities are important qualities in any career our students aspire.

In collaboration with external partners we conduct research projects on e.g banking, local government, customer insights, leadership, energy, healthy ageing and lean operations.

  • Testimonial van Fleur Ruiterman

    "I was involved in a project at Unilever China and at the Shanghai Stock Exchange, which were both incredible experiences."

    "International Economics & Business (IE&B) is about the behaviour of individuals, businesses and governments in an international setting. It includes politics and international relations and extends beyond borders. That's why I chose this programme, because it is extremely useful even if you don't intend to become an economist. I completed the double degree programme 'China and the world economy', a two-year programme in which the second semester is completed in Shanghai.

    The programme provides you with a solid skills base and includes theories, numbers and statistics in a well-combined package. This degree is about learning to think in a different way. You can apply this new mind set to almost everything, not just business. During my time in Shanghai I had the chance to do internships in the second semester because of the flexible schedule. I was involved in a project at Unilever China and at the Shanghai Stock Exchange, which were both incredible experiences. I also volunteered at Chinese migrant schools, where I taught English.

    Now that I have graduated I am looking for a job at a big international firm. I am sure that the IE&B programme will help me accomplish this. A true Dutch experience in a small student city combined with an incredible international experience in one of the world's largest cities have prepared me for the next step."
