International Business Management – Master of Arts in Business

 An internationally recognized high quality two-year master’s program

Questions & Insider Tips

Learn how to manage real-life challenges in the international business world

Internationally active companies and organizations are very demanding when they recruit new employees. They usually look for people who are multilingual, solution-oriented, possess a high degree of cultural awareness, and are both generalists and specialists at the same time. International Business Management offers both, a well-grounded general business education in an international context and the opportunity to immerse yourself in one out of three fields of specialization (International Marketing, International Human Resource Management or International Finance).

In this unique international master’s program, students acquire the management, leadership and functional skills for doing business in an international context, and will also master challenges of increasing complexity (e.g. case studies, simulations, research projects, or real-life consulting projects for companies) that allow them to acquire the problem-solving and interpersonal skills required in today’s globalized business environment.
