● Objectives

This master is designed to provide advanced knowledge in the field of international management for large organizations or SMEs. The teaching is oriented as much towards the professional world and the functions of manager as towards the development of theoretical and methodological capacities.

● Acquired skills

The MScIBD courses have the particularity of meeting the specific needs of companies (multinationals or SMEs) and international organizations. They develop both targeted academic knowledge and practical skills and other specialized skills acquired during group work (e.g., critical analysis and synthesis, problem solving, communication and autonomy). An internship in a company or organization in Switzerland or abroad can be integrated into the curriculum at the end of the program, which offers the advantage of being in contact with the business world early on.

● Career opportunities

Given the universal need for international business managers, the many opportunities available upon completion of this program include corporations, large organizations, NGOs and other international organizations, as well as various institutions working with or for businesses. The potential job market extends to both developed and emerging/developing countries. Taking courses in English and completing an internship expands the employment opportunities.
