The MSc in International Business (incl. CEMS MIM) provides you with the tools to master the challenges of management and strategy in global organizations. The program combines advanced analytical training with active learning in real projects together with SSE and CEMS corporate partners.
You will work on an advanced level with topics focused on running and developing global organizations. Strategy and marketing tools are used to put the firm in context and explore how firms influence their competitive environments. You will also learn how to make firms grow and prosper from the inside, through innovations and management practices that build operational excellence.
Leadership and teamwork in multi-cultural contexts is studied as well as practiced through live projects and group work, and reflected upon through interaction with executives. Ethics and CSR are integrated in several courses to mirror the integrated role it should have in everyday decision-making. Language and skills training provides the essential management communication tools needed for your future work.
In the program you will work with real, “live” projects together with corporate partners of SSE and of CEMS.
Through the combination of topics covered in the program, you will acquire a deep and integrated understanding of how international firms and other organizations function, how to navigate them to achieve results, and, last but not least, how to improve them and the things they do.
