Learning outcomes

The business environment today is highly international. In order to succeed in this competing environment, firms need access to personnel well-trained in international business skills. Not only are foreign languages essential, but employees and managers also need to understand foreign cultures and ways of doing business. Students majoring in IB gain a wide understanding of the complexities of business in a globalising world. They learn how small firms internationalise, which factors and processes support or hamper this development and how eventually multinational enterprises are created. This enables graduates to work as managers or experts in globally operating firms or organisations, international entrepreneurs or qualified researchers in the international business environment. Most of the courses are taught in English. Learning by doing is emphasised, and in many courses students prepare reports and work on cases in groups. Computerised simulation programmes facilitate the learning of multinational enterprise management and decision making in the dynamic field of international business.
