Program Description

M.Sc. International Management, Legislation and Society (Piacenza-Cremona campus)

Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore (UCSC)

Companies employ graduates who have developed awareness to issues of internationalization, who are competent to work in multinational working groups, who can analyze international markets, and develop major projects. The International Management program aims to give students an education that enables them to adapt quickly to an international environment, whilst understanding the dynamics, and knowing effectively how to identify solutions to managerial problems.

Learning objectives

The curriculum presents two types of courses: subjects relating to the basic disciplines (business, economic, and law), and subjects relating to business issues and problems typically associated with the processes of internationalization of firms. This is done to balance traditional knowledge of management with the specialization and the development of specific internationalization-oriented skills. In addition to traditional business disciplines, there are courses that intend to develop the capability to work in different social and cultural contexts, and to review, develop and implement internationalization of firms.
