The International Business and Intercultural Management program from Heilbronn University qualifies first-degree graduates for management positions in globally operating organisations. 


It is intended to equip future business leaders with the subject knowledge and the methodological, interpersonal and intercultural skills that will enable them to excel and become standout leaders in our rapidly changing business world.

It is increasingly important for business leaders to not only understand the dynamic world that we live in, but to also be able to thrive in times of volatility, uncertainty, complexity, ambiguity, and diversity.

At Heilbronn University of Applied Sciences, we have shaped a programme that addresses this multi-dimensional, multi-faceted business environment, the Master of Arts in International Business & Intercultural Management.

Not only focusing on foundational knowledge in the traditional topics such as management of marketing, human resources, and finance, we integrate the important aspects of intercultural awareness, sustainability, and social responsibility through in-depth study that encourages critical analysis, cross-cultural collaboration, and examination of global business issues from multiple perspectives.

With this International Business and Intercultural Management program from Heilbronn University, we provide students an international learning environment. We guarantee innovative teaching and learning strategies and address the future needs of the labour market by offering multidisciplinary content with a focus on sustainability, all delivered entirely in English. Students benefit greatly from our favourable student to lecturer ratio and a clearly structured, time-efficient schedule (3 semesters, full-time programme).

Career Opportunities

Our dynamic programme opens the door to careers in the complete range of business disciplines across all industries. With the internationality of both our students and programme focus, our graduates are prepared to either start their careers in international firms or to further their careers through multi-disciplinary study that focuses on increasingly important global issues such as sustainability, business transformation, and diversity. You will find our graduates in Germany and around the world.
