International Business and Career (IBaC)

Exchange programme

Bringing together marketing, finance and business skills, IBaC offers students the chance to work together with Dutch and international students in a consultancy team.

Your team’s goal is to advise a real company on entering new markets. The Dutch students are from the Marketing and Finance faculties, drawing on different fields of knowledge within each team.

Project-based learning gives students the tools to overcome challenges presented in each semester and the multicultural composition allows them to hone cross-cultural skills.

Why choose IBaC?

Since it was created in 1998, IBaC has brought students of different nationalities together to work with real companies focusing on real-time projects. We receive students from all over the world and work together with 80 different partner universities. At the end of the IBaC semester you will be able to apply international relationship management skills to multicultural challenges and situations.

With its solution-focus approach and project-based learning, students are triggered to find strategic, creative problems for existing international business and marketing challenges. In this way critical competences are developed and clearly evaluated and solutions which are mutually beneficial, logistically feasible and legally sound will be acquired. Innovative teaching approaches ensure a dynamic, stimulating environment in which students are pushed to achieve the very best. The competitive atmosphere encourages them to strive for optimal results, allowing them to stand out and gain a headstart when applying for a job.

In short, IBac can offer you:

  • Grounding for an international future
  • Active, real-time projects with existing companies
  • Innovative, project based learning and teaching
  • A competitive environment in which you can shine
  • A dynamic, multicultural environment, familiarising you with the dos and don'ts of international business
