What do you learn in the master's programme? 

Our programme consists of 120 ECTS and is built on two modules of 60 ECTS. This means the curriculum can be completed in two academic years. Three types of courses are offered. The first deals with the current international economic context, while the second consists of advanced business courses. The remaining courses are at the intersection of those two fields and focus on doing business in an international context.

In the second year, you can personalise your curriculum by picking electives. If you want to turn theory into practice, you can combine an internship at a multinational company with the more theoretical part of your curriculum.

This internationally-oriented programme offers you a wide variety of courses ranging from social sciences to finance, combining multiple disciplines relevant to the management of a company. The objective: preparing you for a future as an international manager.
