Most of us would probably agree that business enterprises face increasing levels of complexity and uncertainty. We believe it has become more important than ever, to prepare future practicing managers to cope with complexity and change in the global business context. This is why our Master programme in International Management combines a focus on Context, Complexity and Change with an emphasis on systemic and holistic approaches to problem solving and decision making.
The Master in International Management is a three semester full-time accredited programme taught exclusively in English. The cohort is relatively small, which means small classes and a high degree of contact to your professors. The programme aims to achieve a balance between theory and practice. Thus, delivery of the programme emphasises blended and action learning techniques as well as the use of lectures and seminars.
Successful completion of the programme means you will be capable of:
• taking a global perspective as a manager
• negotiation and decision making within a leadership role in international organisations at home and abroad
• considering the relationships between economic, technical, social and cultural issues as they affect the organisation
• acting as a bridge between cultures across the organisation‘s range of activities and relationships
