Programme content

You learn everything you need to know to succeed in a management job in an international setting. Within three semesters, you will expand your knowledge to a new level and finish with the Master's thesis. We offer you a broadly diversified education that covers specific topics of international management as well as human resource management, marketing, law and trade relations - of course always with an international focus. And in addition to the compulsory courses, you can choose between numerous elective specialisations - according to your personal preferences. We care about your intercultural competence, and that is exactly why this Master's programme offers many opportunities to look beyond only studying: whether it’s a semester abroad or interesting encounters during the international summer schools in Finland and the USA. But you can also do an internship abroad. Another plus point: The entire programme is taught in English. In this way, you will be ideally prepared for your job in an international company.

Being competent to act in the areas of leadership and management in an international context - this is what we focus on. You deepen your subject knowledge and learn to reflect critically on the material. And you will learn to apply what you have learned in practice. For example, the intercultural projects of the Summer Schools or your internship abroadare suitable for this.
