This one-year MSc programme is for students with a Bachelor’s in business administration interested in how to analyse, formulate and implement strategies, and in becoming a senior organisational leader.
Business is increasingly faced with challenges that threaten current business models but also represent huge opportunities. This programme provides you with the knowledge and skills on how to recognise these challenges and act upon them to ensure long-term success. You will not only learn how to make decisions that can make or break your company but also how to implement decisions effectively.
We offer the latest insights into managerial strategy through a variety of small-scale teaching methods, ensuring an exciting and challenging learning experience. We emphasise both sophisticated scientific insights and linkages with business practice. The MSc in International Strategic Management combines state-of-the-art research with strong links to practise through industry projects in which scientific tools are applied to solve real company issues. The programme also offers the opportunity to combine the Master’s thesis with a company assignment.
Give your career a flying start with the latest thinking in comparative international strategic management and put your learning into practice with our unique action learning approach. You will graduate with a thorough understanding of strategic thinking and the key skills of international business consulting.
The MSc in International Strategic Management requires a Bachelor’s degree with a minimum of 60 ECTS credits in business administration. If you are interested in a management career but lack the background in business administration or management, have a look at our MSc in Management instead.
