Many Bachelor of International Business Administration students are motivated by the opportunities of doing trade between their own country and countries in Europe or Asia and this IBA specialization is suited to those students who are intending to work in the field of cross border transactions, trade and transportation.
Logistics and International Trade involves purchasing, materials management, inventory control, warehousing, transport and distribution. Logistics supports effective and efficient supply chain management by integrating the flow of materials and goods from the initial purchase of raw materials through to final delivery of a product to customers. Logistics and international trade students will be introduced to the supply chain, both in theory and in practice.
Today, supply chain management is also concerned with the management of the return of goods or packaging to manufacturers as part of global awareness of the environment and conservation. This is known as reverse logistics and it is becoming increasingly relevant to business.
English is increasingly the language of international business and trade. The combination of subject knowledge and good English language skills students develop on the IBA programme will give you a distinct advantage in the international job market, either in the Netherlands or world-wide.
There are many jobs available for you in business, trade, public service, finance, marketing, management, retailing and the leisure industry. Some of our most successful graduates have even started their own businesses and many go on to postgraduate study, either here at Wittenborg or elsewhere.
