Program description

Specializing Master International Business - Online

Firms of any size across any industries should prepare themselves dealing with a future that is not what it used to be. This is the assumption that guided our approach in designing the innovative MIB Online programme. The MIB Online Regular class will continue offering a learning experience that examines global issues in-depth focusing on collaboration, community building, exploration and individual and group ownership.

While moving to remote learning, we have leveraged on existing tools to move in-person gatherings online and open up spaces for discussions, events and more. The idea is to offer virtual spaces in lieu of physical ones to enable MIB participants to be part of a university community that continues to connect.

Close collaboration with companies forms an essential facet of the programme. The skills we cover include change management, customer-driven transformation, group negotiation and management of intercultural communication projects, business process analysis and management. MIB has forged links with an impressive network of firms both to design the course and to provide the students with first-hand access to the international business world.

Students will be asked to use all the acquired knowledge and skills to solve international management problems, consolidating them and applying them to the real world of business. Close collaboration with companies forms an essential facet of the programme. The skills we cover include change management, customer-driven transformation, group negotiation and management of intercultural communication projects, business process analysis and management. This provides participants with first-hand access to professional expertise to prepare them for the international business world.
