International Business School
In order to prepare business professionals with a global mindset, who are ready to add value to business and society the International Business School (IBS) offers the following English taught programs:
- Master of Business Administration (MBA)
- Master in International Business & Management
- International Business and Management Studies (IBMS), 3 and 4 year bachelor programs
- Internationale Betriebswirtschaft, a 3 year bachelor program which is also taught in German
With over 1,500 students from all over the world and over 100 employees with relevant international experience, the most noticeable characteristic of IBS is its international atmosphere. The 70+ nationalities contribute to an open-minded and culturally diverse setting throughout our entire school. The language of communication within IBS is English.
As a result of national debates to reduce diversity in economic programs our IBMS program is planned to merge with the bachelor program International Business and Languages (IBL), currently taught at Hanze’s Institute of Marketing Management. This transition is planned for September 2018. With this shift, also the Hanze Language Center will come to IBS. This will open opportunities to broaden and strengthen our language teaching and further make it available Hanze wide.
The new Head of Education will be responsible for year 2 of the bachelor programs with special focus on the planned transition and further development of the Hanze Language Center.
