Try to think of three successful companies and now tell me how many of them are international.
All of them?
As companies continue to expand on an international scale, acquiring a qualification in the field does not only prepare you for the practicalities of a career in the demanding business sector, but gives you the opportunity to pursue your career in any continent across the globe.
We offer you the opportunity to expand your knowledge of doing business on a global scale, whilst studying with classmates from around the world. This leaves you in the ideal position to gain international business strategy and cultural perspectives for your career, whether it be in Germany or abroad.
Our International Business concentration goes hand in hand with the Frankfurt School Master in Management, allowing our students to expand their management skills on a global scale.
We offer the following modules:
– International Business Environment
– International Management
– Cases in Global Management
– Bocconi International Module
International Business Environment allows you to acquire the key skills to analyse the business environment across countries and the way that firms manage their operations in global markets in order to achieve competitive advantage. With this in mind, the main components of this module will include managing global business risk – particularly in emerging markets, supply chain management, foreign direct investment, management of people across cultures / borders, international market selection, and entry mode choice.
The International Management module gives you a thorough insight to the significant factors for businesses operating on a global scale. This includes the cultural aspects of employee characteristics, motivations, reactions to leadership decisions, and cross-cultural topics of human resource management.
Global management is essentially about how firms manage their operations in global markets in order to achieve competitive advantage. Considering this, the main components of the module will include managing global business risk – particularly in emerging markets, supply chain management, foreign direct investment, management of people across cultures/borders, international market selection, and entry mode choice.
We provide you with the ‘Bocconi International Module.’ Studying at Bocconi University in Milan for a period of 1-2 weeks, whilst being fully engaged with assignments, presentations and case studies allows you to share and develop ideas alongside students from another top European business school.
And there’s more! You can put theory into practice and give yourself the most hands-on international experience there is by actually going abroad! Broaden your perspectives, gain new insights and build your network in today’s ever globalising business environment. The International Business concentration will get you there.
