The Master of Arts in International Business and Sustainability (MIBAS) is an English-taught master’s program, designed to equip students with the extensive theoretical and practical knowledge necessary to master the challenges of sustainable and responsible management in business and society. The profound theoretical and methodological knowledge acquired within the MIBAS program prepares students for challenging positions in multinational companies and international organizations. It also opens the door to an academic career for outstanding students wishing to pursue doctoral studies.
Studying the MIBAS program, students from different cultural backgrounds come together to develop a common understanding of the complex interrelations of global business. The program focuses specifically on the ethical, environmental, social and political implications for today’s business world.
The program has an intended duration of two years (four semesters) and offers a wide-ranging set of courses and electives. During the first semester students learn the theoretical foundations of business administration and research methods. On this basis students attend advanced courses in the subjects "Sustainability Management & Socioeconomics", "International Management & Economics", and "Advanced Research Methods". The last semester is devoted to the Master's thesis in which students apply their knowledge and conduct their own research.
