Course description

What does a car manufacturer need to consider when launching a new model? How does a designing firm enter the Italian clothing market? What does it take to effectively lead a sales team in Portugal? International Business and Management Studies graduates know how to deal with these situations.

Rated as the No. 1 IBMS course in the Netherlands (in a 2013 student survey by Elsevier), the International Business and Management Studies (IBMS) at HAN University of Applied Sciences prepares students for careers in both the private and public sectors in the fields of international finance, marketing, business and management. International law, marketing, customer behaviour, organisations, the investment world, leadership; these are but a few of the areas students will have a solid foundation in as a graduate of the IBMS course.

What is more, The Elsevier 2014 survey results show that of all the large universities of applied sciences, students at HAN are the most satisfied with their courses.

Practical approach

During the 1st semester of the 3rd year, students will do a work placement, which will give them the chance to work within a multinational company.

In the 2nd semester of this 3rd year, students will expand their knowledge by studying abroad for a semester.

The final step of the course is embarked on during the 2nd semester of the 4th year, which is a graduation assignment within a multinational company. Experience in the marketing, sales, finance or logistics departments can be gained in the offices of Deloitte Consulting, KLM, L’Oréal or BMW, to name but a few.

Careers prospects of IBMS graduates

Examples of functions after finishing the IBMS course are: international marketing consultant, export manager, international account manager or international sales manager.


The application follows the same procedure as for our other Bachelors and it starts with applying through Studielink and further with the HAN Admissions Office.

The application requirements are sufficient scores in Mathematics and diploma of secondary education (General Certificate of Secondary Education – A level or International Baccalaureate).
