About

The Economics - International Business specialisation at Radboud University combines economics and business studies, focusing specifically on firms that operate in an international environment.

Overview

Why study the Economics - International Business  specialisation at Radboud University ?

  • We teach students that the success rate of cross border business is not just about economic principles but is also influenced by differences in institutions and culture of host and parent countries. Therefore, this Master’s specialisation focus not only on the firm's profitability, but also on the differences in formal rules (institutions) and informal customs and forms of communication (culture).
  • In this specialisation, we combine the latest economic theories with the cultural aspect of doing international business. Graduates will understand that doing business globally requires more than an understanding of economic principles and they will be able to give their future employees a new and fresh look on the process of globalisation and how their company can manoeuvre and position themselves in multiple countries and markets.
  • Students learn about different types of international investments, the role of (free) trade agreements and trade policies, the financial side of trading internationally, and the effects of internationalisation at the firm and country level.
  • We teach students to develop strategies and policies that successfully navigate the global economic landscape. Students are challenged to take an in-depth look at different options for expanding abroad: opening branches or factories, outsourcing, mergers and acquisitions and joint ventures.

Career opportunities

International Business is a growing (student/labour) market. Economic globalisation and rapid developments in ICT have meant that nowadays many organisations operate on an international scale or at the very least interact with various stakeholders such as consumers, partner organisations, and institutions in other countries. It is therefore not surprising that many employers are seeking employees with a broad understanding of international business.
