MBA in Transatlantic Management
Be a part of the global study world
The Berlin full-time MBA in Transatlantic Management prepares for leadership or consulting roles in companies or organisations which operate in a transatlantic context. The pathway course content will focus on general international management issues with a particular focus on transatlantic issues. Students will learn about topics such as the North American Free Trade Agreement and the European Union and their implications for cross-border trade and foreign direct investment.
Certain forms of market entry such as licensing/franchising will receive particular attention. Important variations in business law and corporate governance standards on both sides of the Atlantic will be examined. Differences in business culture and general business practices in American and European companies will be elucidated.
The primary focus is on finding viable and feasible management solutions in real-life situations confronting cross-boarder-aware businesses and organisations.
To realise this goal effectively, business theory is always linked to best practices and placed in an intercultural context – a process that underscores how business activities are located within a social surround where overall economic and social factors play their part.
