About

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.

The Master Degree in International Business Studies is offered by FH Kufstein Tirol - University of Applied Sciences.

This comprehensive new master's degree, with its international orientation, allows students to choose from one of two specializations, whilst simultaneously offering a wide range of electives.
