At our campus in Bali, we execute the same curriculum as taught at our mother campus in The Netherlands, leading to the NVAO (Netherlands Flanders Accreditation Organization) accredited Dutch Bachelor’s Degree (formally registered with the Centraal Register Hoger Onderwijs (CROHO)). You will receive a Bachelor of Business Administration upon completing the programme. As part of the double degree programme you will also receive the Sarjana Ekonomi, awarded through our partnering university, STIE (Sekolah Tinggi Ilmu Ekonomi Triatma Mulya) and accredited through the national accreditation board of higher education, the ban-pt.
Key subject areas in this programme include: Business Economics, Business English, Business Information Systems, Change Management, Corporate Communication, Creative and Conceptual Thinking, Human Resource Management, Law, Management and Leadership, Marketing, Modern Foreign Language, Professional Development, Professional Orientation, Project Management, Research and Strategic Management.
You will be trained as a specialist in these areas over the course of the four-year programme. You will learn theory as well as accepting practical assignments from national and international businesses and will learn to draft opinions, organise events, draft action plans and take part in a management team.
All subjects are taught in English by lecturers from different parts of the world. Likewise, our students represent a mix of nationalities, creating a truly multicultural study environment.
Explore international companies
The first year is designed to provide you with a solid foundation in International Business Administration: you will discover how business processes work and learn about different management styles. You will also take a closer look at customers and their identities, needs and requirements.
Higher up in the organisation
In your second year, you will develop more focused and detailed knowledge, building on what you have learned so far. You will translate this knowledge to perform duties and resolve issues that you may encounter as a manager. Practical simulations, games and a management position at our training venue will give you a taste of your future career, allowing you to expand your knowledge of an organisation’s business operations.
Strategic thinking and acting
You will gradually develop a set of management skills: you will learn to operate at a strategic level and focus on issues such as finance, human resource management and customer relations. In the second semester, you will take two electives*. You will spend this entire year at our mother campus in The Netherlands.
As you get ready to complete the programme, you will take part in an extensive internship and carry out an independent final-year project at a business or organisation, either in Indonesia or anywhere else in the world. You will be expected to provide advice on current issues, and if you and the company are a good fit, the company may end up offering you a position within their ranks.
* Electives are the opportunity for you to specialise, empowering you to focus and expand your knowledge on a specific subject and to truly take charge of your career by ‘customising’ your programme. Examples of electives: E-business, International Market Orientation, Marketing Communication, Change & Innovation and International Sustainable Entrepreneurship.
International Business Administration is a course where students get a glimpse of the business world and know what it is about. In Stenden, IBA is all about real world learning where students perform various business activities and gain experience through research and exploration. I personally am overwhelmed to have great learning experience with such generous atmosphere where one can openly express their thoughts and visions.
