International Business and Development (IBD) is a second-level degree in economics and business (LM77-Economic and business sciences), taught and examined entirely in English, offered by the Department of Economics of Parma University.
It is a two-year course and on successful completion, graduates are awarded the “Laurea Magistrale” or second cycle degree certificate.
IBD is designed for candidates from different academic backgrounds and aims to provide a thorough grounding in international economics and global development.
IBD students are encouraged to gain experience abroad during the two academic years and can take advantage of a large number of opportunities.
IBD teaching methods are mainly interactive and require student participation. Almost all courses include project work, where groups of students, assisted by teachers, prepare, present and discuss projects with teachers and peers.
