Programme profile

Today's 24/7 economy is subject to increasing international competition, and companies and organisations increasingly need to be in control and to maintain that control. They need tight budgeting, reliable forecasts, up-to-date insights into their turnover and costs, and better risk management. That"s why good international business controllers are in demand, and play an important role. This programme responds to that demand, and will equip you to take on such a role.

Each academic year consists of four units of ten weeks each. In each of those units, you will work closely with an international business and focus on a specific business problem faced by that company. Each unit concludes with a project where you are tasked with solving that problem. The subjects you study in the unit will equip you with the requisite skills and knowledge. Lots of practical work is built into the programme at every stage. This will vary from giving presentations to companies (even in your first year), learning how to respond to job applications and conduct job interviews, producing assignments and projects for companies, and attending corporate lectures and corporate fairs.

In the fourth year you have the option of taking your minor (specialisation) abroad through an exchange programme at a partner university.

In the first part of the third year you'll carry out a half-year internship. You"ll be working at an international company and putting theory into practice. Your internship can be in the netherlands or abroad, as long as you are in an international business environment. Another internship will constitute part of your final-year project, when you"ll be researching a specific business issue and advising on it.

Note that there is also an intensive three-year version of this programme available
