Overall
As one of the best universities in the Netherlands, AVANS does itself justice by having a selection of experienced teachers and well thought out curriculums and project. The International Business study, which is fully taught in English, sets you up for a promising career in a variety of different functions. You will undergo courses to improve your marketing, financial and entrepreneurial skills and implement these into several projects which fit the courses really well. You are left to your own responsibilities in finding your way into the work field, with very little to no help while finding your internship abroad. The study also helps you get acquainted with foreign cultures since you will often find international students within your project groups. Overall, I am really pleased with how this study helps you prepare yourself for the business world where you are aiming at.

Overall
Each quarter handles courses that are aligned with the main projects, forming a general theme every quarter.  The courses and workshops have a clear and logical order and structure and are interesting and challenging. Multiple courses build on the courses in previous quarters which confirms previously gained knowledge. and the content of the courses. With few exceptions, the level increases at a constant rate. 
Information between students and the university is clear and organized, the web portal is well-structured and email- and appointment protocols provide efficient and effective communication. Exam results are required to be online within 2 weeks, but are quite frequently available in 1 week or less, providing students with adequate preparation time for exams.
Students are assigned a coach to monitor and guide the study progress, the intensity of the coaching decreases over the years which results in a good foundation achieved mostly at the beginning of the study and increasing self-reliance toward the end of the study. 
The teachers have field experience or are still operating in some field of international business, which provides students with relatively accurate information about what to expect when entering the work field. The field experience of teachers also causes for interesting and valuable stories and situations which students could encounter as well in future jobs.
