Collaborative learning

The MSc in International Management & Law is designed to be a collaborative learning experience. It's a partnership between academic staff and students, and between students from different cultural backgrounds. Working together allows those involved to build upon their collective understanding in interrogating, at an advanced level, the global issues impacting organisations.

Course content

Semester 1
The MSc in International Management & Law begins with an introduction to the Management Development Programme. During this introduction, it's impressed on you that you're responsible for developing both your knowledge and skills and that you should approach your studies as active learners. This introduction is complemented by an Integrated Skills Workshop which focuses on your personal approach to learning and managing themselves.

The core Law class in the first semester is the Law of International Business. It introduces you to the concepts underpinning the regulation of businesses. It will explain the different types of business entities and introduce you to company and corporate law concepts.

In this semester the core International Management class is Managing Across Cultures. This class will help you develop an awareness, knowledge and understanding of the importance of the often overlooked 'soft skills' of management, particularly as concerns cross-cultural variations and their impact on the practices and processes of management. It'll examine the main concepts currently employed to understand the complexity presented to managers in their process of managing people across national and cultural borders, addressing the issues of the impact of culture on management structures and processes. It will then provide understanding of the role which cross-cultural management can play in achieving competitive advantage in international business.

Semester 2
The programme then leads into two core classes. The first is in International Management, namely Global Business Environment. This class is designed to inspire you with the platform of knowledge and understanding on the economic, institutional and socio-cultural contexts which form the background to International Management.

The core Law class is Comparative Law of Obligations. This will consider obligations law in the context of different constitutional arrangements around the world. It will include material on delict/torts, contract and restitution in countries including the UK, Australia, Canada, the EU, the USA and China and also some material on the law of obligations in the Islamic tradition.

Upon completion of the compulsory classes and towards the end of the taught programme, you choose elective classes, allowing you to explore a range of topics. Students enrolled on the MSc in International Management & Law will be able to choose classes from a shared pool of international, general management and law topics available.

Semester 3
The project class rounds off the programme in the third and final semester. This provides you with an opportunity to explore at length and in depth some aspects of theory or methods, knowledge or skills introduced on the taught element of the programme. The project is supported by a class in project methodology. At this stage of the programme you may be interested in aligning career aspirations with project work.

Learning & teaching

Modes of learning include lectures, seminars, workshops, case studies, expert guest lecturers, self-study exercises, project work, and individual study and research. Individual class specifications detail the objectives, learning outcomes and content for each core module of the programme, with a breakdown of teaching methods and forms of assessments used.

There's a strong theme throughout the core classes of ongoing transferable skills development, including team-work, problem-solving, data handling and analytical skills, evaluation skills and written and oral communication. Particularly, the consulting in practice class provides you with professional, highly-transferable skills including leadership, project management, decision-making and negotiation.

Assessment

All core classes in the programme include coursework as an element of final assessment. Other methods of assessment are also used, appropriate to the focus of the class, including group and individual project work, presentations and online assessed exercises. Relative weighting of coursework and other assessment methods vary from class to class.

The dissertation or project will be assessed by in-depth project evaluation reports, supervisor feedback reports and a critical reflection of professional and personal skills.

Course Description

The MBA International Management is a state-of-the-art MBA program that prepares managers and future leaders for working in a complex multicultural world. It targets German and international candidates with a non-business degree but offers enough depth for business degree holders seeking to further refine and strengthen their education. Candidates should have a successfully completed first academic degree, at least two years of professional work experience as well as an excellent English proficiency level.

The idea is to provide students with an excellent foundation of International Management knowledge and skills while at the same time providing them with the opportunity to choose two of four elective courses and specialize in a regional market. At the core of the curriculum lies the imparting of knowledge on current business theory and practice by the use of modern teaching methods as well as the continuous transfer of real-world applications. Furthermore, the program covers the area of Social and Self Competence. In this way, students are provided with a toolbox of executive and leadership skills that every modern leader should possess.

Studying at MBS

As with all study programs at Munich Business School (MBS), small and highly diverse workgroups as well as an intimate study and discussion atmosphere create the optimal learning environment. This allows our students to interact closely and collaborate productively with their class mates and lecturers. Current business and management topics in a well-rounded curriculum full of real-life applications are taught by a dedicated faculty using modern teaching methods and an interdisciplinary approach.

Program Structure

The MBA International Management (MBA IM) is divided into three terms over a period of 15 months. Each term covers topics from the three major modules Business & Management Knowledge, Executive & Leadership Skills, and International Business Environment. This effective modular structure is the basis for a challenging and compact MBA program, which allows its completion in less than one and a half years – thus minimizing the time our students spend putting their professional careers on hold.

MBA students receive in-class instruction on business topics and executive skills during Terms 1 and 2. In addition, they can choose two of four elective courses. Choices are: Management in Emerging Markets or Digital Business Transformation in the Fall term as well as Social Entrepreneurship or Global Supply Chain Management in the Spring term. Furthermore, they choose one of three International Focuses: Germany and Europe, Latin America, or China. In Term 3, students can opt for an International Immersion studying one semester abroad. Alternatively, they can also choose a Practical Immersion (internship or international consulting project) combined with an international week. Depending on their practical business experience, students may be eligible to waive the practical or international immersion in Term 3. This so-called Fast Track reduces the overall study time to a total of twelve months.

The Master Thesis at the end of the program demonstrates the students‘ profound understanding of current business topics and the ability to apply specific scientific methods to a real-world business situation. The topic will be chosen in collaboration with a company. Therefore, the knowledge and research presented in the thesis are valuable for both the student and their company.

International or Practical Immersion

Internationality and practical relevance are two of the core values of The Munich MBA. This is why MBA students can use Term 3 to choose an individual immersion corresponding to their personal needs. International immersion: Students can extend their international experience by studying abroad at one of our over 50 partner universities worldwide. Practical immersion: Students, who would like to immerse themselves into the practical application of their newly acquired knowledge, may either complete an nternship or a global consulting project. In addition, they will spend an international week at a selected partner university.

A Typical MBA IM Class at MBS

When carefully selecting the candidates for our MBA International Management program, we pay very close attention to putting together a diverse yet cohesive group of students. Be it through their academic backgrounds, their personal experiences or their professional paths – we want to create the best possible opportunities for our MBA students in terms of networking potential and mutual enrichment. Here are some numbers of the MBA International Management class of 2014:

Average age: 30 years
International / German: 75% / 25%
Average Work Experience: 8 years
Female / Male: 75% / 25%
Academic Background: Engineering/IT - 25%, Business - 25%, other - 50%

The MBS Best Scholarship

Munich Business School offers a limited number of partial scholarships to outstanding candidates applying for The Munich MBA (up to 25% off the first two semester tuition rates). Selection criteria for the MBS Best Scholarship for outstanding candidates include the following: outstanding educational achievements, professional background, high GMAT scores, international work experience, foreign language skills, social engagement, candidates’ performance throughout the selection process. Since the number of scholarships is limited, early application increases students’ chances.

Accreditations

The MBA International Management program is – like all study programs at Munich Business School – internationally accredited by FIBAA (Foundation for International Business Administration Accreditation). As Bavaria‘s first and so far only private university, MBS has received unlimited state accreditation by the Bavarian State Ministry and institutional accreditation by the German Council of Science and Humanities (Wissenschaftsrat).
