Program description

Master's Degree in International Business

Economic globalization is now an inescapable reality, and it is increasingly essential that companies have an internationalization strategy in place to ensure their competitiveness in global environments. The Masters Degree in International Business addresses the need to produce graduates who are equipped to manage global companies operating at the international level, providing students with the knowledge and skills needed to work in the various functional areas of company management.

The Masters Degree in International Business covers all the disciplines students must understand to successfully manage an international company.

The program enables graduates who have acquired more general training in a Bachelors Degree in International Business, Business Administration and Management, or a similar program to specialize and attain the competences developed on an advanced masters course. In addition to theoretical training, students learn by applying their knowledge to analyse and come up with solutions to practical cases and situations like the ones they will have to deal with in their professional roles.

Thanks to a participatory, case-based approach, students get plenty of practice working on cases that closely reflect business reality.

Students who successfully complete the program will have achieved an academic level that allows them to pursue a career with an international company, acting with complete autonomy as chief financial officer, marketing director, director of operations, human resources director or general manager.

Admission requirements

  • Students of the master's degree must be interested professionally in the functional areas of an international company.
    • For this reason, applicants for the master's degree in International Business should hold a bachelor's degree in International Business, Business Administration and Management, Economics, Law, International Relations, or Engineering.
  • The master's degree is taught in English, which is why students must present an official certificate evidencing a good command of this language.
  • In all these cases, the Coordinating Committee could decide that candidates must take bridging courses before they start the master's degree.

Program content

Increasingly, companies assume responsibility for areas that until recently were mainly government concerns: social security networks, technical regulations and general regulations. In addition, consumers are becoming more aware of the form of production in responsible international companies. Pressure from stakeholders has convinced many multinationals that they must adopt corporate citizenship programs, including policies on environmental responsibility, child labour, conditions in the workplace, and principles of ethics in business practices.

The master's in International Business covers all these aspects and provides students with the knowledge required to manage an international company, taking into account the environment, from the perspective of finance, marketing, operations and logistics, or strategy.

Tuition fees
