The curriculum presents two types of courses: subjects relating to the managerial disciplines (strategy, HRM, accounting), and subjects relating to business issues and problems typically associated with the processes of internationalization of firms and the understanding of economic issues (managerial economics, financial reporting and performance measurement, business and government relations). This is done to balance traditional knowledge of management with the specialization and the development of specific internationalization-oriented skills.
In addition, the Global Business Management program offered by Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore also includes courses that intend to develop the capability to work in different social and cultural contexts, and to review, develop and implement the issues that typically arise when firms go global.
Graduates will have both the technical knowledge and the methodological tools suited to pursue professional and managerial careers in large multinational and domestically owned corporations, SMEs and international institutions such as the World Trade Organization, the International Monetary Fund, the World Bank and the European Commission and the European Parliament. Yet their learning of abilities of how to deal with international and multicultural issues should also enable them to work within smaller companies, where flexibility and the ability to adapt comes first.
Graduates from the program are given the unique opportunity to take advantage of the interaction with guest speakers coming from the most innovative business models.
