Year 1

International Business

For you, business is an adventure. You are ambitious, eager and ready for a challenging academic programme with a global mindset. You want to live in the vibrant city of Amsterdam, a true hotbed of ambitious entrepreneurs and multinationals. You want to study and work abroad to set yourself up for a truly global career. Join our EPAS-accredited international programme at the Amsterdam School of International Business (AMSIB).

The Fast-Track programme International Business is a three-year Bachelor’s degree programme taught entirely in English. The programme delivers the same intended learning outcomes as the four-year programme, only more academic in nature, citing a broader range of literature and business theory.

The programme combines lectures and real-business world projects. This will prepare you to start your own business or launch a career at a multinational corporation like Nike, Google or Microsoft, or start a Master's progamme.


The first year of the programme is called the General Business Track which runs through the first three semesters of the programme. The aim of this track is to broaden your business knowledge through fundamental modules such as Principles of Management, Business Information Technology, Change Management, Marketing Strategy and Governance, Sustainability & Entrepreneurship.

As part of your professional development, you will follow Professional English Writing and Cross-Cultural Management.
