Overview

International Business Communication (IBC) is an English-taught Bachelor’s programme about effective communication in multilingual organisations. An increasing number of organisations are going global, which calls for communication advisers with a keen eye for intercultural communication and a talent for foreign languages, such as English, French, German and Spanish. Becoming fluent in one of these languages and understanding the intercultural context of business communication gives our IBC graduates a competitive edge in the area of consultancy, communication management, communication research, training and education.

Why study International Business Communication?

- Become an expert in intercultural communication & languages
- Learn to communicate effectively in English, French, German, or Spanish
- Study a semester abroad to explore the culture of your chosen language

Programme structure

This three-year Bachelor’s programme is divided into two semesters and four periods per year. A complete year at Radboud University consists of 60-course credits (European credits), divided over several courses. At the end of each period, you will have a series of exams to test what you have learned.

During the first year of the English-taught Bachelor’s programme in International Business Communication, you will take a range of courses that will introduce you to the three main areas of the programme: Language, Communication and Organisation; Intercultural Communication; and Academic and Research Skills.

In the second year of the English-taught Bachelor’s programme in International Business Communication, you will specialise further and take more advanced courses in the field of intercultural and international business communication.

In the third year, theory and practice are combined and you will have the opportunity to apply your knowledge and skills to find solutions to social issues of topical relevance. This will be done as part of a minor. We offer a variety of minors with a societal theme, varying from gender and diversity to migration and big data. Choosing one of these themes will help you put focus on your programme, making it easier to set yourself apart from others when entering the labour market.
