This challenging study program gives students the tools required to understand firms and the global world in which they operate, training prospective managers, entrepreneurs and consultants to make a major contribution to the performance of organizations of all types around the world, while applying the idea of a responsible and sustainable future to business operations in practice.

It aims to provide integrated and comprehensive knowledge of the businesses operating in globalized markets and rapidly evolving contexts, including their environmental, geopolitical, technological and demographic challenges, digital transformation, the need to make decisions based on structured quantitative analysis of large data sets and the need to balance multicultural perspectives in people management.

Mobility abroad is a key element and may take the form of work and/or study experiences. The duration of study abroad may vary from one semester (Exchange and Free Mover programs) to one year (Double Degree programs).

The MSc in International Management is divided into several different programs, each exposing participants to different international learning environments.

Students must select each program of interest as a separate program choice when submitting the application for admission.
