It is nowadays a truism that accelerating globalization makes the world of international business a demanding and challenging place. Yet it is important to remember that change has always been part of the way we live our lives. Historically, people who have been the most successful at handling change have been those who have engaged in higher education at some point in their lives.

Successful people are generally those who have an attitude of not just adapting to changing circumstances, but who anticipate the direction of change and who can thrive in dynamic environments.

This International Business Studies at FH Kufstein Tirol - University of Applied Sciences, with its international orientation, allows students to choose from one of two specializations, whilst simultaneously offering a wide range of electives.

Students studying international business are given a rigorous training in such areas as economics, research methods, management, marketing, finance, accounting, area studies and foreign languages. These form the basis of skills acquisition so necessary in international business. 

Two Specialisations

The spezializations are in marketing and finance. The marketing option is designed to provide a sound management education in the broad area of marketing. A thorough understanding of services marketing, consumer marketing, consumer behavior, social marketing and social psychology is integral to the marketing management specialization.

The finance option, which is built upon a comprehensive economics base, includes courses in the areas of corporate finance, multinational business finance, behavioural finance as well as the economics of uncertainty.

Graduates from the program are effective communicators, are highly information literate, are able to analyse, evaluate and solve problems, as well as being creative and innovative. Moreover, such people understand the imperative for ethical behavior and to be responsible corporate citizens.
