Program Description

The M.Sc. International Business Management has a strong international focus. Building on a knowledge of basic concepts, theories and applied business administration, the programme develops a comprehensive understanding of international management. This takes into account both strategic and operative aspects – and focuses on a project-based and applied approach. Students on this postgraduate programme can expect to acquire the expertise and skills to work in companies or organisations active in an international environment or take on a management position as a future executive.

Take a closer look at our specialisation Digital Business Management & Leadership

Digitization is permeating modern business life. Digital start-ups often disrupt incumbents’ traditional business models, while these prepare for digital transformations. New ways of designing business models and value chains, of marketing products and services and leading people are required. Our specialization in Digital Business Management & Leadership prepares students for taking on managerial roles in the era of digitization, be it in start-ups or traditional companies. Seminarist lectures on up-to-date topics are complemented by the discussion of used cases as well as a Digital Business Safari to hotspots of digital business in the Berlin area.
