Professionals in international positions require a wide range of competences. We offer you the possibility to develop your knowledge in three key areas of international business: global strategies in a digitalised world, global marketing and entrepreneurship, and leading people in a global business environment.
The objective of the MIB programme is to educate internationally competent students and to provide them with the required knowledge and skills to work in challenging positions both in international business and in the increasingly diverse domestic markets. In practice this means developing a diverse range of knowledge and skills.
We offer you the chance to develop your international competence in an interdisciplinary programme focusing on Sustainable Global Business through three core knowledge areas of international business: global strategies in a digitized world, global marketing and entrepreneurship, and leading people in global business environment. In addition, sustainability and ethics in global business are integrated into these key areas.
