Learn how to influence an organization’s behavior. Understand a company’s finance and control. And when international distribution and external logistics come into play. You also learn about control and information systems. Manufacturing processes and ERP. International entrepreneurship. And more!

The program in a nutshell

Your classes and workshops take place Monday through Friday. You get a feel for marketing and tactical skills. Finance and qualitative research. And more! Seminars take place 1-2 times per week. And guest speakers come often to share their experiences and knowhow. And to answer questions. You take a written exam on the subjects halfway through each semester. 

The first half of the year, you work in a group of classmates on a final project: a research paper on Dutch Economy in a global context. The second half sees you take off for an international business project.

Students as partners

Dutch way of learning

The atmosphere in a Dutch classroom is quite informal and your lecturers are easy to talk to. In fact, at HAN you’re seen as a partner in the learning process. Class sizes are small and your lecturers encourage you to actively participate in class. To ask questions and give your own opinion. They also stimulate you to be creative and to discover things for yourself.

International welcome days

The HAN’s On: International Welcome Days give you a great start at HAN. Students and staff organize these days especially for new international students. That means you! You get loads of useful info and practical tips about studying and living in Arnhem. What’s more, you have great fun and meet lots of other students. The program is a must for all new international students. And it’s free of charge!

What about credits and grading?

At HAN we use the European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System, or ECTS. It’s the standard credit system used in higher education across Europe. How does it work? One credit = 28 hours of study. Think of contact hours. Time spent working on assignments. Preparing for exams.

One semester = 30 credits = 840 hours of study. To earn credits, you need to pass your exams. What counts as a pass? A grade of at least 5.5.
