Would you like to develop your management and leadership skills internationally right from the start? Do you find foreign countries exciting and love working in intercultural teams? Then you are well and globally positioned with the myStudies master's programme. The core element of your study programme for the International Management master's degree is that you learn contextual intelligence. This enables you to act competently, professionally and confidently in an international context. Because you understand social, economic, political and cultural contexts. Perfect for a leading position in internationally operating companies. 

Your International Management myStudies study programme at IU has a deliberate international focus. With modules that focus on international aspects. For example, managing across borders, intercultural management, leadership or business ethics and corporate governance. The focus is on conveying transdisciplinary knowledge as well as methodological and application-oriented competences for successful work in the international business environment. The modules also deal intensively with topics such as strategic management or current issues in international management. 

The special aspect of your IU myStudies model: During the week, you attend courses on 2-3 days during the day. You can do this either in person on campus or virtually via video conference. Depending on your individual needs! 

Within the master's programme, you can of course specialise further - and thus expand your management know-how accordingly. Become an international marketing expert, a financial expert or learn more about product development and design thinking. Would you prefer to work in global HR departments, or in IT management and project management later on? You can also focus on this with specialisations such as IT project and architecture management or data science and analytics. By the way: For the MA International Marketing, you should already have completed a bachelor's degree or have gained some professional experience. o

Contents in your myStudies Programme International Management

Our master's program is modular. You therefore study on the basis of different topics, which are divided into so-called "modules". Within these modules, there is usually an introductory and an in-depth course, which systematically prepare you for the completion of the module. Within the modules you will receive ECTS (European Credit Transfer System) points for each successful completion, which document your achievements. These ECTS points are internationally comparable and of course recognized.
