- the program is intended to qualify students for all aspects of international management as well as for academic research. The program takes into account that nowadays professional-level international management skills must include intercultural skills. For this reason, the program has two main purposes, just as its name indicates: firstly, to qualify for international management and secondly, to provide theoretic and practical expertise in the field of intercultural communication.
- The latter is particularly enhanced by studying in different countries and being part of an international cohort of students. In addition, students will acquire competence in international accounting and financial management as well as cultural studies. When writing their thesis, students use electronic research tools and analyze economic data and thus demonstrate their newly acquired skills.
