"Master of International Management at AAU substantially enabled me to put my early discerned passion and fondness for the international beauty & fashion industry into occupational practice. I truthfully believe that especially the double degree program with La Rochelle Business School contributed markedly in pursuing a career in the luxury division of the global cosmetics market leader L´Oréal and be conducive to my current position at the French up-scale beauty brand Lancôme which I am proud to manage."
"The Masters in International Management has provided me with some of the most crucial skills in taking a business from one market to international level. Market research, policies, finance, group work have enabled us to learn how to work in different groups of people, do proper planning and market analysis, position a business against its competition and so on. This experience has allowed me, and my other colleagues, to take on rolls in fastest growing business in Germany and the world. I believe it's a perfect learning experience, theoretically and practically, for anyone looking to work in business that runs on the international level."
It is exciting to study in a programme with students coming from all over the world. The programme helps me to study in an intercultural environment and to see management in a broader context. This study programme stands out due to the personal and professional support from the professors.
Masters in International Management offered at the Alpen-Adria University is a comprehensive business and management program. Over the span of 2 years, I learned important management, finance and business concepts that I currently use at my work every day.As a director business development and sales for an international company, I interact confidently with customers globally. This is thanks to the emphasis that the program had on doing business internationally. The program explained key concepts of international economics, financial management, new market development, new products and their life cycles and understanding how cultures play an important role in doing business. A lot of the course work had to be done as a team which helped me to understand how to work with cross-functional teams.
In a nutshell masters in International Management is a program offers its students a good balance of theoretical business and management concepts and their practical application which is useful in today’s global business.
Each day I am able to tap into the knowledge I acquired during my International Management studies. Because the Master degree is quite broad, you can use the theories in so many different situations. In particular, I find that I frequently refer back to the financial part of the programme, while in general, my improved business vocabulary in English has proved very useful.
"The master’s programme International Management offers excellent student services and a highly professional linkage of theory input and practice. Moreover exchange of experiences between international students and a mandatory semester abroad provide ideal prerequisites to pursue an international career. The focus on SEE and CEE countries is a further advantage for graduates. This greatly helps me in my current position as a group controller in the country support (e.g. Slovenia, Serbia)."
