In the International Business (Business Administration) programme of the University of Amsterdam, you learn about the challenges multinational enterprises (MNEs) face when doing business abroad. This track is one of the nine tracks you can opt for in our Master's in Business Administration.


Help multinationals make the right choices

Globalisation increasingly stimulates firms to expand across borders and become MNEs, which confronts them with macro-level issues related to supranational policies and ‘local’ matters such as market entry mode and internationalisation strategies.

In the International Business (Business Administration) programme of the University of Amsterdam, you investigate the challenges of managing an MNE. Learn how to identify strategies and tools to succeed in foreign markets, discover how large MNEs are structured and managed and become familiar with the range of methods to enter foreign markets.

Devoted team of lecturers

Our international team of lecturers and researchers is devoted to taking you on this challenging intellectual journey. They will invite you to discuss theories, practise them in real-life cases and draw up creative solutions, thus providing you with a solid foundation for a future career in an increasingly globalised business landscape.
