Easier communication, more efficient international transportation, the relocation of production and services, and a significant increase in economic migration have made the study of international business and management increasingly relevant. This course attracts students from every corner of the globe and reflects the main areas of international business. It integrates theoretical knowledge with practical enterprise skills in a global context, and also gives you the chance to develop your knowledge and management skills so that you can pursue a career in multinational companies, overseas trade and international organisations. Course content A highlight for many students are the study trips and company visits organised throughout the course which provide an opportunity for networking and extending learning in new environments. Students on this course also benefit from free access to part of the material on the course reading list. Associated careers Our international courses equip you with the knowledge and management skills to pursue a career in multinational companies, overseas trade and any international organisation in general management. Graduates also work in relevant aspects of the economics of international business, or as international finance specialists. Many graduates return to their countries of origin and are employed in developing international business opportunities, government or NGO institutions. A significant number of students also go on to study for PhDs. Internships All students on our full-time business Masters courses can apply to undertake the PG/MBA Internship Programme Reflective Practitioner Module. This is an 8 week unpaid accredited internship, which can be taken in addition to option modules and will help students to gain invaluable work experience. The internships, which are with London-based organisations, take place during the summer period. To apply, students must submit a completed application form and a copy of their updated CV to the Business Experience Team; the team then shortlist from the applications and conduct group meetings with the applicants. Ultimately it is up to our internship employers to decide whether they would like to interview the candidate(s) and offer him/her an internship. We have received very positive feedback from both postgraduate students and employers and expect that the internship programme will continue to remain popular amongst our students.

Testimonials "I’ve been fortunate to experience first-hand the way MIUC redefines the traditional learning process inherent to higher education, especially when it comes to the integration of new technologies. The professors here pay special attention to each student's individual abilities, tailoring their course accordingly. My favourite course is "Making Strategy Work in the 21st Century", as it has enabled me to grasp the concepts of a company’s 'mission', 'vision' and 'strategy' from an organisational point of view. It's always exciting to study away from home. I am able to explore new avenues of life in terms of culture, language, customs and the traditions of Spain. Studying here broadens my thinking as well as the scope of opportunities ahead of me. Marbella is gorgeous!" Maneesh Palli "Salam, my name is Soraya, I am 20 years old and I live in Marbella. I study Business at MIUC. So there is something that I really love about my school which is the extracurricular activities. Here at school, it’s super cool because we love sport, many many different sports like surfing, swimming, basketball, tennis and many more. And thank God the weather is super nice to help us for this kind of activities and also it helps us every day to have a good mood to go to school, to chill out and not be stressed out and also we have this chance to be with many many people from all around the world in class. So we are going to learn every day from each other. So it’s super super nice." Soraya Mediouni "Salamalaykoum, my name is Camilia and I study International Business here at Marbella International University. I have been in different universities around the world and the reason why I chose MIUC is because first of its faculty. We have professors and doctors holding degrees from one of the best universities in the world: Harvard, for instance. What they do is they take all the knowledge they acquired and they bring it to us on a silver plate. Another reason which is very important nowadays is the multicultural learning environment. What that means is that we have students from different countries with different nationalities and most of them speak more than three languages and I believe that this multicultural learning environment here in MIUC leads to a great understanding and appreciation of other cultures. MIUC also offers several foreign languages such as English, Arabic, French, Russian and Chinese. This helps students to think globally in the future. If you ask me I would say that MIUC is one of those universities that know how to define the word International because we have diversity, each student brings a unique culture and value to the university.

MA in Law and International Management

WSPiA Interdisciplinary Centre for Business Studies
Campus Full time 2 years April 2017 Poland Warsaw

This Master’s degree programme is offered in partnership with the Citadel School of Business (USA). [+]

MA Degrees in International Management. Get your MA degree! Make your choice, do not squander this opportunity You are reading about a Master’s degree programme of an unusual character. In the XXI century many educational institutions have realized that reliance on the XIX century patterns of teaching and learning is a dead end. They have figured out that in the world of rapid technological growth, changing geopolitical realities (a two-superpower world transforming into a one-superpower international system which in turn is sliding into a multiple-power system with many regional powers), and yet-to-fathom demographic shifts, apart from skills and competencies one should learn how to adapt, use one’s imagination and creativity, appreciate diversity and choose optimal courses of action. Indeed, education, especially second cycle education, takes on a completely different meaning in the world where picking up a profession is not a life-long adventure. At the time of your reading these lines many professions that would be important in your life do not even exist. The leading educational institutions, therefore, have begun to seek new solutions to the problem of contemporary education. At the Interdisciplinary Centre for Business Studies at the Department of International Studies of the Mieszko I School of Education and Administration we have conscientiously scrutinized our own extensive experience and practices of many top-notched schools, universities and institutes offering educational programs related to business, economics, management, law and administration. Our staff have studied and taught at universities and colleges in Amsterdam, Beijing, Brussels, Cardiff, Kiev, London, Lviv, Melbourne, Minneapolis, Moscow, Poznan, Warsaw. Also, we have travelled to and examined study programmes in such countries as the United States, the United Kingdom, Germany, France, Italy, Switzerland, Austria, the Russian Federation, Czech Republic, Ukraine, Hungary, Ghana, Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, Thailand and India. We have come to the conclusion that contemporary business education should be based on three pillars: quality, interdisciplinary character, and international approach. Quality is a truly compact concept. It encompasses high level of instruction, first-class facilities, library resources, etc. In our understanding, it also comprises this special attitude: It is great to come to know something, to read about it, but the genuine understanding comes from action, from sharing how some goal has actually been achieved, from being motivated enough to embark upon action and from having enough ‘élan vital’ (this creative force within you which is responsible for your growth, adaptability and desirable changes) to persevere when a given target seems to be unattainable. The second pillar is an interdisciplinary basis of the curriculum. You will specialize on a specific topic while writing your Master’s thesis. However, the program itself teaches you law and management with hefty measures of international relations, economics, psychology and administration. You will be proud to show your diploma to your employer and you will also be confident that you will be able to take care of your professional tasks in all their variety and complexity. Life does not heed our division of studies into disciplines. It will never adopt to us, this is us who should adopt to it. Life does not long entrust fascinating jobs to the unimaginative, obstinate, narrow-minded and overly specialized. Finally, we do believe that contemporary education should be international. This is the third pillar. As with the concept of quality, ‘being international’ is an intricate notion. It does not only mean that having students from various countries is desirable, it also entails ceasing to be parochial, looking for relevant case-studies in other countries, cooperating with your partners abroad, and trying to fathom global trends. When we study a case far away from us, we learn first and foremost about ourselves as we endeavor to figure how we would behave in a given situation. If you are looking for a Master’s degree, we are sure we have something special to offer to you. Should the above description of our MA in Law and International Management programme taught in partnership with The Citadel Business School (USA) and Pedagogium – School of Social Sciences (Poland) inspire an interest in finding out more about the programme, please write to us at info@icbs.edu.pl Admissions The admissions procedure is based on principles of transparency, nondiscrimination, simplicity and active communication with candidates.

Only documents in Polish, English, German, Russian or Ukrainian are accepted without an authorized translation into Polish. There are two intakes per academic year: till the end of October and till the end of March. There is no requirement of sending us a proof of English language proficiency.

Students commence their studies once the Agreement is signed and the first instalment is paid. During the course of studies international students will have to nostrify their BA/BSc diplomas at the Ministry of Science and Higher Education of Poland. To find out more about the nostrification procedure please click here. Because of the above, all the accepted candidates are supposed to bring along and submit at ICBS the originals of their Bachelor’s diplomas (together with the transcripts). The Admissions Committee and the administration of the Interdisciplinary Centre for Business Studies are always very positively predisposed to all candidates. We do help them complete all the required documents and pass successfully the admissions procedure. Tuition fees At the Interdisciplinary Centre for Business Studies at the Department of International Studies of the Mieszko I School of Education and Administration we can do many thing for you once you become our student. We can invite more guest speakers, organize conferences, encourage you to publish in our journal, run cultural events, write you a letter of recommendation, etc. What we cannot do is to further lower the tuition fee. It is truly competitive and allows us to maintain the level of instruction that you and we are proud of. Applying to our MA program you do not pay the application fee. Once accepted you pay the entry fee of 400 PLN (110 USD or 100 EUR) and the first instalment of the tuition fee or its full amount if you wish. The program tuition fee totals to 8000 PLN annually (which is equivalent to 2200 USD or 2000 EUR). Remember that you study two years. You may pay it in two instalments of 4000 PLN (1100 USD or 1000 EUR each). Payments can be made by bank transfer in Polish Zloty (PLN), euro (EUR) or US dollars (USD). Curriculum This Master’s degree programme is offered in partnership with the Citadel School of Business (USA). Here is a list of courses that the curriculum includes: Legal Issues in Business Corporate Finance Project Management Macroeconomics Incentives and Performance Power and Institutions in World Politics Marketing International Business Communication Business Leadership Strategic Management Economic Policy Business Ethics International Financial Institutions International Trade Law International Business Strategies Innovation and Competitiveness Business in Emerging Markets Global Energy Policy Business Organizations Statistics for Business International Competition Law Enterprise in Global Business Global Economic Forecast International Negotiations MA Seminar You will have to complete these courses during four semesters (two academic years) earning altogether 120 ECTS. Some of the courses will be elective (i.e. optional), all others – mandatory. During the course of studies students have to earn 20 ECTS for elective courses. If one miss a given module because of one’s work or family reasons, she/he will have a chance to complete it by writing special assignments through distance learning. Not more than 40% of the MA programme may be completed by distance learning. You will also have to complete an internship (this is an obligatory requirement). Weekly tutorials will be held to assist you in writing your final assignments and in preparing your final MA thesis. The above effectively means that our module-based MA programme is, in practice, a full-time educational offer. Those of you who would be busy at work or would be constrained by family responsibilities could still attend only the mandatory modules, ask for a permission to complete an internship in the home country and do the tutorials online. Our MA in Law and International Management programme taught in partnership with The Citadel School of Business (USA) is flexible enough to accommodate your preferences without lowering the standards of education and compromising the feeling of genuine fulfilment from the studies. At the end of your studies you will defend your MA thesis (about 50 pages). The topic of your thesis should be agreed with your supervisor during the third semester of studies. Upon graduation you will be awarded the Master’s degree in Administration and receive a diploma of finishing the MA in Law and International Management programme taught in partnership with The Citadel School of Business (USA), both issued by the Mieszko I School of Education and Administration. The programme is delivered through modules, tutorials and internships. There will be 8 modules altogether (2 modules per semester). The modules will be held in November, January, April and June. Each module will last five days (from Wednesday to Sunday). Following each module the students will have to complete written assignments. Weekly tutorials will help the students to write these assignments. Also, the students will have to complete an internship. Finally, they will have to write an MA thesis (with the help from their supervisors) and defend it. [-]
