If you want to work in international and global business settings, International Management is the programme for you. The International Management programme combines entrepreneurship, business renewal, and internationalization to offer you a broad perspective on business and provide a good foundation for your future career.
The programme prepares you for the dynamic nature of today’s business life. In a world with an increasing international competition there is a great need for managers who can develop existing businesses by seizing new business opportunities.
The International Management programme comprises basic courses in economics and business studies and specializes on business management and business renewal in an international context.
The programme has gained EPAS EFMD accreditation.
The programme provides the students with the opportunity to spend one semester abroad and choose courses that will help to individualize their degree. Students abroad are limited to choose courses at universities within the fields of business administration, economics, statistics, economic geography, commercial law and language.
Students choose the courses at these partner universities in coordination with faculty at JIBS, and approval of courses is done through JIBS faculty. The students have the opportunity to study courses at JIBS during that time if there is a reason to not study abroad.
