Today’s businessmen must be capable to face situations and manage people no matter where they are from, what language they speak, and no matter where they are.
This is the aim of our Master of International Business: not only learn international but, most of all, experience international, in order for you to build your own future managerial style.
You have completed graduate studies and want to specialise your curriculum in business, to apply for the highest management positions in multinational companies and organisations, to create and run your own business worldwide, or to become a global business consultant: this is the degree you need.
This 6-month Master’s degree is designed for executives and students without in-depth previous business background, offering from the general management fundamentals to specialised courses in the area of international business.
You are provided with a strong professional approach to international management and the necessary know-how to:
- Perfect business English speaking and writing
- Acquire a global managerial culture
- Understand the challenges of international and European business
- Develop global networks and foreign businesses
- Negotiate and manage projects in a multicultural/multinational environment
The theoretical knowledge is implemented in a practical, appropriate and evolutionary manner to prepare you to be operational in companies of all sizes all over the world.
A strong component of international students, faculty and business practitioners ensures you effective and high interactive lectures, where scholars from different horizons, backgrounds, ages and countries meet and share their knowledge and experience, creating a true global environment.
Your courses are scheduled three days a week (Thu-Fri-Sat), over twenty-five weeks from September to March, in order to allow you to study and work, or conduct your internship at the same time if you so choose.
