MASTER OF ARTS IN INTERNATIONAL MANAGEMENT

Would you like to develop your management and leadership skills internationally, right from the start? Do you think foreign countries are exciting and love working in intercultural teams? If this is the case, you will be well prepared with the master programme in International Management. The central element of your master’s programme in International Management is learning about contextual intelligence. This will enable you to act competently, professionally and confidently in an international context, as you will be able to understand the social, economic, political and cultural relations. You will be ideally qualified for a leading position in internationally operating companies.  

Your study programme in International Management has a clear international focus, with modules that concentrate on international aspects. This includes, for example, international accounting, international requirements for HR management, international marketing and financial management. The emphasis will be on acquiring interdisciplinary knowledge as well as practical, methodical and application-oriented skills for a successful career in an international business environment. Topics such as performance management and corporate governance will also be taught intensively. 

You will, of course, be able to specialise further within the master’s programme – this way, you will be able to expand your management know-how accordingly. Become an international marketing expert, a finance expert or learn more about international supply chain management. Would you rather work in HR departments of global companies or in IT and project management after graduating? You will also be able to focus on these areas. You should have already completed a bachelor’s degree or gained some professional experience for the MA in International Marketing. 

Information on accreditation and state approval can be found on the sub-page of the degree program.

If you prefer a more innovative approach, you are in good hands at global start-up companies. For example, as: 

AREA SALES MANAGER

As an area sales manager you are responsible for a defined geographical area. The size of the area is determined by the number of target customers or the number of area sales managers in the company. Your main tasks are to build up sales in the region and to increase the sales of your products. In addition to maintaining and developing your customer base, the tasks usually include managing and training your sales team, performance analysis and market research, but above all the development of sales strategies.

INTERNATIONAL HR MANAGER

Multinational companies need personnel and especially HR managers to take care of the recruiting process when filling global management positions, to organise international personnel transfers or to coordinate international HR projects and personnel marketing. As an HR Manager, you are also the contact person for all specialists and managers in defined regions, and you prepare the HR reporting.

BUSINESS DEVELOPMENT MANAGER

In times of change, you need to have a feel for changes and trends as a business development manager. You analyse developments and markets and develop new products and business ideas on this basis. To do this, you bring sound knowledge in the areas of finance, economics and law to the right place.
