In all countries, economists assume the top positions in society, are managers of the largest enterprises and banks, ministers and prime ministers, governors of central banks as well as managers of prestigious consultation companies and analytics departments.

Economics is a demanding study, requiring an ambitious and motivated individual with good analytical abilities. An individual who will be able, as shown by many examples, to make decisions in a key position in the business sector and in state policymaking. Why?

The International Business programme at the Faculty of Economics is one of the Faculty’s bedrock graduate programmes. It is also one of the most internationally-oriented ones, both in terms of its course offer and student structure. It compares favourably with the best programmes of its kind in the world. It also builds on the specific geo-strategic, economic and cultural position of the region,where East meets West. Obviously, there is only one global market out there, and we are all part of it, yet regional differences still present an important challenge and opportunity in terms of international business. Most companies are going international, we as consumers are becoming ever more “glocal” and the majority of us are communicating globally on a daily basis. These are just a few of the reasons we need to learn more about today’s international business and institutional developments, changes in the global environment, resources and strategies which can all make us more competitive – as companies or managers – in the global business world. ...
