Students may expect a business oriented approach to teaching. At the IVA students will be trained for technical and commercial, organizational, and managerial positions.


Since its foundation in 1930 the IVA has made a name as the Institute that trains enterprising students. Entrepreneurial education, very well adjusted to the requirements of trade and industry, is central to the IVA-training.

The curriculum is aimed at the Dutch as well as the international branch in the first place, but because of its entrepreneurial character it turns out to be very well adapted to the requirements of many other branches of industry. The IVA Business Management Program was recently voted as best college program in The Netherlands and has been in the top 3 for more than 7 years in a row.
