MBA International Management (full-time)

The 15-month full-time MBA International Management program prepares graduates for working in a complex multicultural world. It targets international candidates with a non-business degree but offers enough depth for business degree holders seeking to further refine and strengthen their education. During their studies, students may opt for two of four elective courses and one of three international focuses (Germany and Europe, Latin America, or China). In addition, they select one of the following international or practical immersions in Term 3:

  • International Consulting Project + 1 International Week
  • Internship + 1 International Week
  • Study abroad.

This approach allows students to enhance knowledge regarding a specific country or organization before demonstrating their acquired skills with their Master Thesis.
