International Management

Course Description

The Master's programme in International Management at Utrecht University School of Economics (U.S.E.) is a highly international, multidisciplinary management programme that pays attention not just to business issues, but to corporate social responsibility, ethics and human behaviour as well. Founded firmly in economics and international financial management, this specialised MSc is designed for a new generation of managers who understand that the real 'story behind the numbers' includes well being for all stakeholders.

Core to this Master is the management of international operations including entry strategies in foreign markets, cross-border mergers and acquisitions, and cross-cultural leadership. Further, senior executives' main role is to create new opportunities and maximise the impact of firms in society, so there is a strong emphasis in this Master's programme on global innovation strategies, entrepreneurship, and corporate social responsibility.

* Integrate theoretical economics with insights from professional practice
You will acquire new knowledge by working with a combination of theory and case studies, as well as working with real-world data obtained from companies. You will also build links to professional organisations and refine your research and analytical skills.

* Have a strong base of managerial economics and research skills
In the MSc in International Management programme you gain a variety of research skills such as metrics, business statistics and qualitative research methods like survey design and case studies.

* Gain from active involvement of experienced practitioners in the programme
Guest lectures, as well as visits to organisations and financial institutions operating internationally, will help you connect to a network of professionals interested in your career opportunities.

* Be part of a small, international community
The mix of students and lecturers from the Netherlands and abroad gives the programme a unique international environment.

"The optimal preparation for managerial decision making in a global context.” - Dr. Hein Roelfsema, Assistant Professor
