The Amsterdam School of International Business has contributed global minded and skilled people to the world of international business for more than 135 years: firmly rooted in the Golden Ages of Amsterdam business ever since the rise of its first multinationals, the merchant traders of the high seas.
Under the name Hogeschool voor Economische Studies (HES) we were situated in the heart of this city. In 2004 we relocated to the south-eastern region of Amsterdam – as the International Business School, part of the Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences. Today the Amsterdam School of International Business (AMSIB) is home to 2,800 students and 150 employees with real-world experience.
Many have worked for companies like Hewlett Packard, Barclays Bank, Deloitte, Intel Corporation and Cap Gemini, while other have run their own businesses. They have taught and worked in developed economies and emerging markets, providing our students with a unique lens on international business.
They contribute their knowledge and know-how to education as lecturers, expert, coaches, study advisors, programme managers, curriculum designers, mentors and skills trainers. Currently over 30% of the AMSIB staff has an international background.
