Your course content
What you will learn

The Master’s programme in Global Business and Leadership will enable you to gain the key transferable skills required in the labour market, allowing you to act independently and successfully: from the theoretical foundations of international management, strategic management and social research (market research) to leading intercultural teams. Last but not least, you will have the opportunity to apply all the skills gained during our teaching/learning events and in exchange with our practice partners, testing your skills on the basis of practical problems.

Your career prospects
Our innovative approach that pays off

With a clear focus on management functions in companies, and against the backdrop of increasing labour mobility, completing this programme is the perfect way to start your career in a globalised world. Launch your career in Germany, Europe or on another continent: your management skills and the experience gained with your fellow students from all over the world will put you one step ahead of other applicants. If you are keen to implement your business model after graduation, our Founder Institute will support you. 

What I like most is being able to work with people from different careers and nationalities. The courses are challenging, interactive and related to recent topics. The staff is always ready to help us and tries to create an enjoyable environment.
