YOUR CAREER GROWS. WITH YOUR GENERAL MANAGEMENT STUDIES.
Whenever individual departments in a company get lost in small details, as a General Manager you are in charge of keeping track of the bigger picture. With a keen sense, you will uncover existing conflicts within the company processes and develop precise strategies for their resolution. The business management skills required are a cornerstone of the Master’s Programme in General Management at IU International University. By further expanding your existing skills, you will be able to take on leading positions in a wide variety of areas: managing director, human resources manager, management consultant, or sales manager.
Depending on your needs, you can complete the Master’s Programme either full-time or part-time. You will first and foremost expand your existing knowledge of business administration and specialise in your preferred field of management. Other topics include leadership, business ethics, and corporate governance. The curriculum also includes marketing, corporate finance, and social aspects of any business. Ultimately, it is up to you to decide on the focus of your studies and the area of the organisation in which you want to pursue a professional career.
