Languages are key in the Management and Administration programme.

You can choose between English, French, German, Spanish, Chinese and Dutch! You will also use these languages effectively within various project courses.

Intercultural diversity

Borders are dissolving, cultures are melting. Focus on four regions in which you want to excel. Europe, Africa, Latin/North America, Asia or the Middle East. Inter-National experts fly over to immerse you the culture and professional routines.


Are you more business oriented? Choose additional courses from the Business Management programme or why not from the Tourism and Leisure Management programme?
