Your Master – the Next Step Towards a Successful Career in International Business
And nowhere more so than at TIAS. Our International MSc in Business Administration programme offers ambitious bachelor graduates a fast-track into an international business career – an exceptional programme that combines specialised knowledge in marketing, financial, investment or change and business management with a broad business and management knowledge base.
Learn how to work in an international team, delve into intellectually-challenging academic concepts, and then apply this knowledge to create innovative solutions to real problems. Acquire the professional and personal skills to lead, negotiate, delegate, and handle yourself with confidence – starting with that all-important first job.
FourSpecialisations – Plus Managerial Preparation
Unlike a specialist masters, our International MSc in Business Administration programme offers both an area of expertise, and broad business and management knowledge. You will be qualified to take on a specific role in a company, but with the added operational overview and leadership skills to perform beyond what is expected.
Professional and Personal Development
Dedicated professional and personal development is an important part of our International MSc in Business Administration, because success in international business depends on knowing how to manage yourself, and your relationships with others. Experienced coaches will give you the tools needed to grow and develop throughout your career, from knowing what motivates you, to establishing clear career goals.
International Classmates, Faculty and Content
Global business is all about effective teamwork. This is why you work in international teams throughout the programme. You will learn and communicate in English, the language of international business, about issues with global relevance. And you will learn it all from international faculty, an experience that is invaluable both for your development and in the eyes of future employers.
More Individual Attention
It is simple: smaller classes, more one-on-one guidance and mentoring- enhanced learning and development. Our intake is around 60 students, much less than on other master programmes. You will therefore get more attention from staff, and a much higher level of in-class interaction with your international classmates.
A Different Approach to Learning
At TIAS, you learn through the 'Block Teaching Method'. This means, you focus intensively on one subject at time, a method proven to be more effective than traditional teaching methods. You will gain a deeper understanding of what you learn, retain it better, and find it easier to manage your workload.
Upon successful completion of the programme, you will be awarded the MSc in Business Administration.
