About this course

This Master's degree programme attracts committed and inquisitive thinkers and doers with an international orientation. This is the only programme in the Netherlands that focuses on the cultural and linguistic aspects of international business communication, from a multi-disciplinary perspective. The influence of culture and language(s) on the corporate communications of organisations that operate internationally and therefore need to manage stakeholder relationships across different cultures plays a central role throughout the programme.

Through this programme, students will learn to apply advanced analytical research techniques to analyse communication in organisational contexts. They will gain insights into the latest (theoretical) developments in multiple disciplines relevant to the practice of international business communication, and they will develop key competencies that will allow them to make informed decisions relating to communication management challenges and communication design in an international context.
