Our students take advantage of a wide variety of core and elective courses to customize their education .
The Master of International Business Program consists of the following elements:
Core courses form the foundation of skills and knowledge in the key areas of international business and international affairs. Core courses are obligatory and students take the core courses in their first year of study.
Elective courses allow students to customize their education to suit their own interests and career goals. Students take a total of five elective courses: one in the second semester and four in the third semester. Through elective courses students build the unique expertise and marketable skills in the areas of their choice.
For students who do not have a substantial background in global economy, international affairs, finance and management the Program offers adaptational courses aimed at building a solid base for further more in-depth knowledge of specific subjects.
Students may choose to take an optional course as an additional component to their curriculum.
'International Business Consulting' is the program's key consulting project. In this course students do real-life consulting projects for participating international companies.
