    Is a product more attractive for consumers when it is advertised in their mother tongue? Which associations does the French language evoke if you want to sell a perfume? Is English as a Lingua Franca the ultimate communication mode that multinational companies should use in their corporate communication?

    Students who study International Business Communication in Nijmegen cover these kinds of questions. They learn to apply advanced research techniques, and analyse and audit communication in international and multilingual organisational contexts. They gain insights into the latest (theoretical) developments in multiple disciplines, including corporate communications, applied linguistics and international management, that are relevant to the practice of international business communication. Students develop key competences that allow them to make informed and research-based decisions regarding the communication management and communication design challenges faced by organisations that operate in an international context.
