About this course

Demand is increasing for managers to be able to not just successfully operate in their home market, but also in the ever more globalised economy. Expansion into international markets presents companies with several challenges which require understanding, adaptation, and market-specific business best practices. This is exactly where our Master of Arts in International Management comes in. Our four-semester master's programme International Management is application-oriented and imparts in-depth knowledge  in  economic  subjects  and  basic specialist knowledge in the elective area. With our Master in International Management degree you have the opportunity to not only gain a top degree in business and management but also major in the career field most attractive to you.  

Plus, brand new for 2021, we have a shorter, two-semester option for this programme worth 60 ECTS credits—great for if you are looking to gain core fundamentals in management and soft skills.
