About

Studying International Business Administration at Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam, you’ll combine a comprehensive study of all the essential business disciplines in a genuinely international context with a strong focus on people in a cross-cultural environment.

Overview

The International Business Administration programme at Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam is multi-disciplinary, which means you’ll study everything from management and organisation to cross-cultural marketing, and from information technology to international strategy. 

And you’ll get to work with real businesses – in IBA, companies meet classrooms to give you practical experience that will set you up for a career in international business.

The first half of the IBA programme allows you to explore a broad range of business disciplines, while the second half is about making choices and deciding what your future holds. Along the way, you’ll acquire research and analytical skills, as well as learning to deal with real-world business problems. 

Why International Business Administration at VU Amsterdam?

  • Unlike traditional Business Administration, IBA will give you a truly international training – our courses are customised for the international market. 
  • VU Amsterdam organises Business Experience Days, during which companies are invited to give presentations, workshops and masterclasses (and to recruit their new hires!) 
  • The university’s top-class career services offer events, internships, workshops and career coaching. 
  • Not only do you benefit from an exchange abroad; you’ll also work in real cross-cultural teams with students from all over the world. 
  • VU Amsterdam offers you the opportunity to make your own decisions and choices. 
  • VU Amsterdam is a campus university, which means students actively participate and spend time together – both during the programme and in their free time.

Job opportunities

Many IBA graduates end up at international corporations or even go on to become entrepreneurs and run their own start-ups. Lots of our students find work abroad, for obvious reasons, and fields include business analytics, supply chain management, marketing, financial management and policymaking. 

A Bachelor’s degree in IBA will give you any number of employable qualities, including critical thinking, research skills, self-awareness, social/professional skills, and the ability to make the link between theory and practice.
