The work you do in the compulsory modules of Corporate Management, Business Management and Sales and Marketing forms the basis on which your functional skills will be developed in specialist modules. The content of the specialist modules Corporate Development & Human Capital Management and Small/Medium Enterprise Management & Entrepreneurship will give you the choice between management responsibilities in personnel management or corporate management, or the option of setting up your own business.

Why International Management at EBC Hochschule

Many graduates with a Bachelor degree decide to go on to take a Masters degree to improve their chances of getting the job they dream of.

A Masters degree does indeed have a positive effect on career opportunities.
