International Business Management at Carinthia University of Applied Sciences is highly practice-oriented. Problem-based learning, real-life case studies, online simulations, consulting projects for international companies, team challenges or excursions provide opportunities to learn about international business in an interactive way.


International Business Management is an internationally recognized high quality two-year master’s program which is taught entirely in English.

With its flexible specialization structure, International Business Management allows students to gain both, a well-grounded general business education in an international context, and the opportunity to immerse oneself in one of the three fields of specialization (International Marketing, International Human Resource Management or International Finance). A variety of courses in the other specializations can be taken in addition on an optional basis.

The International Business Management program from Carinthia University of Applied Sciences provides an opportunity to learn a new foreign language. As part of the curriculum, students can choose from German, Italian, Russian and Slovene language courses. Together with a curriculum that is taught entirely in English and the location in a German-speaking country, studying at CUAS is a great opportunity to upgrade your language skills.
