International Business School (IBS)

Welcome to the International Business School (formerly known as School of Marketing and International Management). The School where business, marketing, management and languages merge. Saxion International Business School (IBS) focuses on conscious business, entrepreneurship, international networking, and personal branding. This reflects in the way we teach, the attention for personal development, the content of the projects, and our international staff with various cultural backgrounds. Our School has approximately 1,000 students, employs 55 members of staff, and offers education at two locations (Deventer and Enschede).

Our programmes 

When studying International Business you will work with peers from 35 nationalities and you will learn how to become a conscious business professional who really can make a difference. We expect you to spend at least one semester abroad and you will be able to start your career anywhere in the world after your graduation.


International Business offers you the opportunity to determine your own study career within an international framework. After my initial studies, I completed an internship in New York.
