Are you planning on launching an international business career? Are you eager to work for a company or an organisation that operates on an international scale? Then the IBM major may be for you.

Students are challenged to study and work in a multicultural team.

Business information managers lead IT projects and supervise new IT systems. In the world of ICT, three things matter most: the right information shared in the right place with the right people. Students in the BIM major have an eye for both the overall picture and specific details. They have strong social skills, and excel at building bridges between users, managers and technical ICT experts. These are precisely the skills developed in this major. Students in the BIM are interested and, ideally, well-versed in technology, computers and networks. However, the focus is not on hardware or technical aspects, but on developing and evaluating information systems. There is a high demand in the industry for competent people who are willing and able to think creatively and logically about information systems. You will be trained to find solutions quickly and to explain them clearly to users.

Students in the IR major particularly develop insight into the role of governments in international relations and business. The IR major is built on three international pillars: an economic pillar (what is the economic environment in which an international firm operates?); a business pillar (how does an international firm operate in this environment?); and a political/legal pillar (which political and legal aspects does an international firm have to take into account?).
