Become the international leader the world needs

Our MBA in International Business programme follows a four-block structure focused on developing you into an entrepreneurial thinker with a global mindset.

Beyond the core curriculum, the programme offers various opportunities to deepen and broaden professional skills (e.g., intercultural communication or negotiation) and to profit from professional career services such as workshops to develop an own brand or individual career coaching.

Teaching approach

  • Evidence-based Education: Teaching is supported by state-of-the-art research evidence otherwise unavailable to professionals.
  • Mixed classroom: We believe strength comes from diversity and are proud to create places and programmes that attract people from different backgrounds and provide equal opportunity to all.
  • Interactive methods: Teaching consists of a combination of traditional and interactive ‘flip-the-classroom’ based elements (e.g., presentations, discussions, teamwork, software-based business simulations).
  • New world knowledge: We focus on relevant learning and knowledge co-creation – offering inspirational guest speakers and ‘real life’ case studies developed in collaboration with renowned firms and start-ups to build relevant skills and connections between the programme and industry demands.

Professors

Distinguished professors from VU's School of Business and Economics will lead the courses. They will be supported by renowned academic subject-matter experts, executive coaches, and former and current executives and entrepreneurs, who will share their expertise and experiences with the participants, ensuring close ties between the programme and industry demands.
