International Business Administration
Gain a solid foundation in marketing, management, accounting, and finance to pursue a career in an international organization or to start your own business.
What is International Business Administration?
Receive a solid educational foundation in the four core pillars of business: marketing, organization and management, accounting, and finance.
Unlike economics, which focuses on relations in the economic environment, International Business Administration focuses on all aspects of running a large, global organization, as well as its relationship to the outside world.
After a foundational phase in which you rapidly immerse yourself in all aspects of a global organization, you can specialize in the topics of your choice during your exchange period and in your thesis.
Develop business skills in the areas of teamwork, communication and (intercultural) communication, systematic research, planning, writing, presenting, reporting, and entrepreneurship.
