You’ll break new ground in international business management in a classroom where fellow students and lecturers come from 40+ countries.
The industry contacts will give you the tools to become a ‘manager of change’ in a high-flying business management or consultancy career.
Recent IB graduate, Ian Burgers, took his final year digital marketing internship at Bloomreach. He explains: “The International Business programme gave me the theoretical foundation and taught me practical skills, such as communication and working in the international environment, that I needed for this internship. Throughout the countless projects that I did at IB, I created a structured way of working for myself that is crucial to my success at this internship!"
People and Organisation is one of the specialisations on the IB programme. Mariya Stancheva found her calling in this field and made her mark as a professional recruiter at Michael Page International after a successful internship.
During the first two years on the IB programme the curriculum mostly takes place on campus. You’ll be assessed on your theoretical understanding and apply this to group projects, interdisciplinary business games and test scenarios.
In years three and four, you’ll put your theoretical foundations to the test. You’ll take a semester-long exchange in one of our 180 partner universities across the globe, followed by a four-month international internship.
You’ll complete IB with a final thesis that solves a real business problem for an international sponsor company.
The IB programme offers four specialisations:
- People and Organisation
- Finance and Accounting
- Operations and Supply Chain
- Marketing and Sales
The graduates often apply these specialisms to general roles with a wide range of duties in small and medium-sized companies, or more specialist roles in larger companies or multinationals.

- Junior financial analyst
- Financial consultant
- Corporate communications manager
- Assistant accountant
- Client reporting specialist
