The internationalization of the careers of IBS Hanze alumni is explored from various viewpoints. A quantitative historic analysis has been performed on the influx of international students and their job careers as alumnus. Job position, industry size and SIC (Standard Industry Category) were analyzed as well as the relation between nationality and country of settlement. Netherlands and Germany appear to be settlement countries for many non NL or DE alumni, 30% of NL and DE alumni work in countries other than their nationality. To establish the motives for an international career 62 alumni responded to a questionnaire why and how internationalization was important for them.
