Overview

In the Creative Business (CB) programme from HU University of Applied Sciences Utrecht, you work with an international group of students and tutors on global projects; for example bringing an American product or brand to the European market, or introducing a European innovation to the Middle East.

You develop into a flexible and creative professional with an entrepreneurial mind set, ready for an (international) career in creative business.
