IB is a broad business study programme covering all departments of a company: from general management to human resources, marketing and finance. The programme aims at preparing you for a management position within an international business environment. Examples of projects you will work on are; writing a business plan for a company, managing the acquisition of a foreign company or advising organisations on whether to stay or leave a market.

At Fontys you study in various ways. There are lectures in classrooms with about 25 other students, sometimes classes are combined in a lecture hall. In practical lectures you work independently or with a project team on your assignments. The campus offers a wide array of facilities to study alone or with a group.
Regularly you are in touch with your study career manager / tutor who supports you and guides you during your studies. In the second year you will work on group projects, such as the mini company, in which you gain practical experience in the field of marketing, finance and economics.
In the third year you specialise in an area of your choice in a minor or semester abroad. After that you will do an internship at a company. In the fourth year you come back to Fontys to specialise more and you end your 4-year study programme with a bachelor thesis which you write during your second internship.
During the whole study programme you will work in projects and on individual assignments, a method which will stimulate a hands on, independent way of working. At Fontys we believe in interaction. We like it when you ask questions during lectures and also outside lectures we are there for you.
