The International Master of Business Administration (IMBA) is a double degree master program of the International Business School Alliance (IBSA). Upon completion of the one-year program you will receive degrees from two different partner-universities in two countries of your choice.
You may either start your first term in Bremen, Germany choosing the core modules of our full-time master's course and acquire the basics of an MBA. All core modules are of the same excellent quality at every IBSA-partner university.
Or you decide for our specialization in the second and third term and get a sound and deep knowledge of International Logistics and Supply Chain Management. Bremen's location is tailor-made for this specialization and many international logistic companies are situated here. Bremerhaven, the seaport of the free city-state of Bremen, is one of the largest European ports. Among other goods more than 1.350.000 cars are imported and exported every year and its traffic is growing constantly.
IBSA Double Degree Master
Courses are offered under the auspices of the International Business School Alliance (IBSA). The IBSA program offers a set of core modules in term one, followed by a term two specialization consisting of 4-6 modules and a final research project.
Term one provided students with core modules worth 60 UK or 30 ECTS or 12 SH credits, setting the context of the broader field of global business and management.
Term two provides the specialization modules, also worth 60 UK or 30 ECTS or 12 SH credits.
In term three the final research project worth a further 60 UK or 30 ECTS credits or 12 SH is related to the chosen specialist business function.
Students start with the first term at any of the 5 partner universities belonging to the International Business School Alliance (IBSA) and have to change to a second IBSA-partner in the second term. The final research project in the third term is completed at this second IBSA-partner.
After completing the whole program successfully, students receive a degree from both universities, at which they have studied.
