3616.jpg The MIB programme has been carefully thought out with a practical approach. We first start with the basic fundamentals; different ways to approach and/or enter (foreign) markets in the Advanced topics of the International Strategy module. At the same time, in the International Finance and Tax module, we examine the key documents in international procedures and the financial consequences for MNEs. In the international Marketing module, we do different case studies to discover which marketing techniques were used by analysing real MNEs. Market analysis and different calculations are studied in the Economy and Law module. During the International Human Resource Management-module we gain insight into how to manage employees, and how to turn (international) problems into challenges and cope with them. After these basic fundamentals we specialize in how to do business in different parts of the world: Asia, Latin America, Europe and the rest of the world are studied in depth. By doing an internship at a MNE you have the chance to apply your theories in the world of work. All the subject matter is covered in lecturers by qualified professors as well as guest speakers from multinationals, government and other businesses."
