Loredana has been accepted to four universities in the Netherlands in recent weeks to study for a Bachelor of Science in International Business and Economics. This degree course allows students to gain in-depth knowledge of theories from the fields of economics and business economics.
In addition, students build upon their analytical, statistical, and practical skills. They are trained in the research methods needed when applying knowledge to current issues within the field, which includes working on relevant real-world cases. Many assignments are completed in small teams. This process teaches students to cooperate quickly and effectively with other team members, each of whom has a different (potentially international) background. Employers increasingly value this skill of collaboration. Internships and study abroad options are available with this degree, and it is taught in English.
