MA International Trade and Finance

General

Program Description

Modern businesses are directly affected by current developments in international trade, the economic environment, and financial markets. For this reason, possible variables affecting these markets need to be fully understood and integrated into the decision making processes.

It is predicted that in the future, markets will become even more competitive, and managers will face even more economic integration with fewer international trade barriers. They will have to closely follow processes and take instant, accurate decisions on a global scale. For this reason, there is a growing demand for managers, who keep abreast of the changes happening in the international trade and finance arena.

Graduates from this program will be qualified as managers. They will have a strong background in finance, understand the implications of applying theoretical knowledge and will be able to evaluate the relationship between global trade, the economic environment, and financial markets.
