Students will increase their understanding of global markets and various regions of the world. They will learn about country-specific business practices and be challenged to explore business phenomena from different perspectives.

With strong conceptual underpinnings, the MSc is also highly practical in orientation. It emphasizes the skills of working, managing and leading in various organizational settings (i.e. MNE’s, SME’s) embedded in diverse cultural, social, economic, and political contexts.

Thanks to the professional nature of the lectures, students will benefit from networking opportunities with seasoned International Business practitioners.

The skills and knowledge acquired will be valuable to employers faced with the challenge of opening and integrating multiple markets and achieving cohesion and collegiality in increasingly diverse workforces.
