International curriculum Business, Languages and Applied Information Technology.

I

The faculty of Business and Information Management offers an extensive English-taught curriculum and attracts high numbers of exchange students from its many European partner institutions.

Without a doubt, the added value of an international experience cannot be underestimated for students of languages (we have a flourishing Business Translator programme), but the possibilities are equally extensive for students from applied information technology and business studies in its wide variety.

Since courses are taught in English, we require the students to have a good command of the English language (B2 level is advised). Please have a look at the European language levels.
