In the two-year master’s program in Business Administration - Strategy and Management in International Organizations (SMIO) we aim to educate future leaders with good judgment, who can analyze complex problems and make well-balanced decisions.

On top of that, each course provides insights into the workings of a number of international organizations (ranging from Starbucks and Apple to The Red Cross) and empirical phenomena (from CSR and outsourcing trends to business development in East Africa). Students then use their research-based foundation to draw connections, define problems and analyze through for example casework and projects. Each course also practices the students’ communication skills in one or more areas, through the writing of argumentative essays, oral presentations, feedback-sessions, debates and café seminars....
