MSc in International Business

International Business is not accepting applications for the 2024 intake year.

Designed to prepare students for PhD studies, this specialization introduces students to the key elements of a global strategic orientation, examining the ways in which economic globalization and a firm’s international presence has an impact upon its organization, processes, and competitive advantage business strategy. It also explores the major terms, constructs, theories, and debates in the cross-cultural management field, and how the study of international business connects with other management disciplines.
