“I chose the Double Degree option and earned an MSc in Management from Mannheim in Germany. The international consulting project was a tremendous learning experience, developing an international expansion strategy for a U.S. footwear company. During the project, we worked across multiple time zones and reported directly to the divisional leadership team. We were also invited by the client to visit one of their factories, a flagship store and to meet the Chairman and CEO at their headquarters.”

“I elected to pursue the Double Degree Option, and earned an MSc in Management from University of Mannheim in Germany. Among the many outstanding features of the program, the team project was the highlight for me. It enabled me to broaden my cross-cultural capabilities and provided valuable experience working within a virtual team with members in various locations around the world - a situation that is quiet prevalent in today’s global business environment. I also believe that my experience in Germany played a key role in landing my current job at BMW.”

“The double degree program allowed me to specialize in my field at Bocconi while the curriculum at Queen's taught me the practical skills to successfully foster an international career. Because of my MIB training, I have an acute understanding of the cultural nuance that can impact my business relationships, which allows me to strategize accordingly. Now that I work abroad and interact with many brands and partners around the world, this skill is no longer just an advantage but a necessity in my job.”

“The Queen’s MIB is practical and applied programme. It equips students with the tools, and mind-set to succeed in diverse settings. I combined the Queen’s MIB with BI Norwegian Business School’s MSc in Strategy & Innovation. This had a more theoretical flavour, and provided me with the opportunity to learn about theories and various frameworks, while also having the opportunity to write a thesis on a topic I found extremely interesting. Based on my experience, I can strongly recommend pursuing both programmes. The synergies obtained can enable students to acquire the ability to solve complex and abstract problems, which is highly valued in the workplace.”
Rahman Khanani, Queen’s MIB
