The Master in International Business and Management (MIBM) is a fulltime, 18 month programme that prepares you to work in a real international context, by gaining intercultural specific competences. Would you like to work in the management team of an international company or be part of a business team that is aiming for internationalisation? Are you looking to develop broader competencies for your future work as a manager?
In the MIBM programme you learn to solve international business issues from a boardroom perspective of an existing company, with significant practical and professional orientation towards international business. The programme truly applies professional knowledge and skills into practice. You will be working together with students and faculty from all over the world. On top of this, the MIBM offers you the opportunity to obtain a dual degree, allowing you to study for one third of the programme at Anglia Ruskin University (ARU) in Cambridge, UK. Please note there are limited places available. After completing the double degree programme, you will receive two officially recognised international master's diplomas.
