The Rennes School of Business bachelor’s degree is carefully structured into a series of “learning loops”. Each loop begins with the introduction of a new context (a business, the international environment, etc.), followed by theory-based contributions and discussions with lecturers to consolidate and appraise students’ observations. It is in moving from one loop to the next that students learn to learn.
This progressive vision underpinning the international bachelor degree in business approach is fully consistent with a business and management study programme designed for future graduates. In this ever-changing, globalised world, the importance of lifelong learning across all situations cannot be overestimated. This programme offers two tracks: 100% in English or French-English.
The IBPM aims to educate students who possess the tools, competencies and abilities required for management in the context of globalization and a changing environment and who are able to create sustainable value for business organizations in an efficient and effective manner.
As an IBPM student with at least 9 months’ hands-on practical business experience, you’ll be in a position to:
- build your managerial skill set in line with your career plan. Being in close contact with economic players teaches you to react quickly, precisely and appropriately to situations that are often unforeseen, always urgent and generally complex.
- become an accomplished communicator and negotiator. You are the business’ intermediary at ground level, and will need to learn to communicate and negotiate effectively and autonomously.You must be able to manage human and cultural diversity in order to safeguard the local presence of your business in years to come.
- understand the managerial challenges associated with responsible and sustainable development. It is the operational manager’s responsibility to act in an ethical and responsible manner in order to create longstanding value for every one of the company’s stakeholders.

I’m really happy about my decision to study in Denmark, as I managed to discover a new culture
I have spent my third year of IBPM in Denmark with a double degree programme. Thanks to this programme, I got to know very well the Scandinavian way of life. I’m really happy about my decision to study in Denmark, as I managed to discover a new culture, meet many people from all over the world, and improve my English skills.
I can only recommend IBA and Denmark.
