About us & our values

IBS-U Is a non profit study association that plans events for International Business students of the Hanze university of applied science.


"Connect to be connected"

By participating business and non-business events, students connect with each other.

IBS-U is a non-profit student organization, which was founded in 2007. The organization provides recreation and entertainment opportunities for all international students.

IBS-U has grown at a rapid pace and in 2009 was recognized as an official part of Hanze University of Applied Sciences. With an annual membership of over 400 students, IBS-U is able to arrange a variety of social events that take place from September to June. Also, students get the opportunity to develop themselves by becoming an active member and join different committees.

Moreover, the IBS-U is responsible for the afternoon and evening programm during the Introduction Week for new students. This brings people together and helps new students settle in quickly.
