You will develop relevant professional skills, such as intercultural teamwork, planning, leadership and business communication. We maintain close contact with the professional world so you will work with real life business cases.

You are open-minded about other cultures and you have an international scope. You are independent, but a team player at the same time. And you are adventurous and self-motivated. You take an interest in international businesses, how they are organised and how they can improve.

Our community is truly international. Both students and lecturers come from the Netherlands and abroad. Our approach is personal. You will work in small groups and have your own personal coach.
