The international business programme provides postgraduate students with the competence to work as researchers or specialists in demanding international business contexts.
Postgraduate studies are largely built around the student's own scientific interests. However, the majority of the dissertation topics are related to the research focus areas of the department: innovations in international business, international growth and international entrepreneurship, cross-border mergers and acquisitions and corporate social responsibility in international business. The opportunity to study the European transition economies gives an additional perspective on international business in a changing Europe. Particular emphasis is placed on the problems of the transition phase, and on analysing Western companies and their actions in conjunction with planning and implementing their business operations.


Professor Niina Nummela for post-graduate studies in international business.
The minimum number of credits required in the major subject is 32 cr. Postgraduate students of International Business construct their studies according to the following principles:
Courses that are compulsory for all students:
- MAJ11/KVJ11 The Evolution of Marketing/International Business Theories, 6 cr
- MAJ12/KVJ12 Academic Argumentation and Presentation Skills, 2 cr
At least two of the courses:
- MAJ13/KVJ13 The Use of Scientific Method in Marketing/International Business, 6 cr

- It is possible to substitute courses in TSE with postgraduate courses offered by other institutes, such as those in the KATAJA programme (The Finnish Doctoral Program in Business Studies). Students wishing to complement their postgraduate studies in other institutions should ask their professor for advice as the applicability may vary
- Postgraduate students may also choose courses in their specialisation area from the general advanced course offerings of their major subject (international business). Note! Students taking advanced courses on the European transition economies are required to have previous studies in or other experience of the subject.
All postgraduate students are required to participate in the research seminars and national IB doctoral tutorials. They are also expected to give a presentation of their research plan according to the agreed schedule and to act as opponents in the research seminars when asked to do so.
Postgraduate course examinations are held on all the examination dates set for Marketing and International Business, approximately nine times each term (18 times a year). The exact dates and times are given in the TSE examination timetable. It is also possible to take the exam in the exam aquarium on another date if agreed beforehand.
