Your cup of tea?

who are you?

You care about current global issues and are fascinated by languages, people and other cultures. As an open-minded yet criti­cal thinker, you easily adapt to ever-changing surroundings. Those passions and qualities will lead to a successful career in an international company or abroad. 

What do you want to learn?

You understand that communication skills matter and will develop those easily in courses like ‘Intercultural Communication Skills’ and ‘International Business ­English’. You want to improve your language skills and reach a professional level in two foreign languages. But you also want to expand your knowledge of ICT, business basics and discover the inner workings of process and project management.

What do you want to become?

It will not take long before you are the one to keep business up and running in international companies and organisations. As a multilingual office manager you implement and coordinate new media strategies, you coordinate projects from A to Z and you are an indispensable workforce in the company. You know how to manage complex problems and optimise procedures and processes. 

What to expect?

International practice
Theory is good, practice is better! Let us inspire you: you can expect an internship abroad in your final semester, innumerable company visits and guest lectures, groundbreaking field trips abroad and internationally oriented cases.

Internationally-minded fellow students
Artevelde University of Applied Sciences relies on a broad network of partner institutions in Europe, Asia, Africa and America. This enables attractive and enriching exchange collaborations. And your fellow students all have a global world view. A great opportunity to improve your language skills, hear other points of view and work together on cases and projects.

 I am very lucky to have so many open-minded people in my class. From day one, they were all so helpful. In return, I volunteered to act as a student ambassador for the programme. I always tell people that Ghent really is a great place if you want to live and study in a truly international environment.
