Increasing globalisation and the rise of international companies has seen international business degrees become more popular. Businesses are now seeking to capitalise on the opportunities that trading worldwide can offer, making international business education all the more important.
An undergraduate degree in international business will usually give you a foundation knowledge of business. You will then be able to develop this knowledge and apply it to international contexts. International business courses will cover a wide range of topics, such as finance marketing, marketing management, international management and business and management.
You will mainly be taught through lectures and seminars. There may be opportunities to take part in projects that simulate a business assignment. Some degree programmes may offer a placement as a compulsory or optional module.
The Netherlands is a great choice for international students, as it has a very large international population that would be ready to make any new international students feel at home. The Netherlands was also one of the first non-native English speaking countries to offer courses taught in English to international students. The Dutch people have a long standing reputation of being tolerant and open minded, meaning you will feel welcomed and comfortable as soon as you arrive in the country.
