International Management, M.A.

  • Application Deadline
  • 18 months
The conquest of foreign markets and the globalisation of value-added chains – these are the kinds of challenges that companies are facing in heightened international competition. The International Management programme delivered by Hochschule Fulda - University of Applied Sciences is the ideal preparation for the management tasks involved.


You will learn how to think in intercultural terms and to work using an interdisciplinary approach. Initial experience in a practical environment is the first step on the way to taking on responsible international management roles in a wide range of different sectors and companies of different sizes.

To put it in a nutshell, if you enjoyed the business management topics in your previous undergraduate programme, found the globalisation of business events exciting and would like to set your sights on a management position in an international corporation after a few years of professional experience, our programme could be just what you have been looking for.

The academic environment at Fulda - small groups, an above average percentage of international students and direct contact with the teaching staff - is ideal for tomorrow's global managers.

Excellent career opportunities for graduates

Successful completion of the Master's programme will equip you with extensive professional, social and communication skills for challenging tasks in the field of international management. In the first stage of your professional career, you will be able to be flexibly employed in diverse company functions, depending on your Bachelor's degree and your chosen electives and independent of industry or company size. 

On completion of the International Management programme delivered by Hochschule Fulda - University of Applied Sciences, you will have acquired the theoretical and practical tools necessary for responsible management tasks at the corporate or divisional management level. Specialised knowledge is often less important in these high-level positions than holistic decision-making skills and the ability to take action, making the generalist focus of your Master's degree particularly worthwhile.
