Contents of degree programme
Highly qualified for an international career: In an age of globalization, languages, cultural knowledge and skills are essential competencies to compete in international markets. The International Management programme provides prospective students the opportunities to acquire these competencies. The mandatory semester abroad will broaden the horizon and enable graduates to socialize in a culturally different country. An excursion and a short-term period of study abroad also emphasize the cultural focus of the programme.
