Master's Programme in International Business and Entrepreneurship

While international business and entrepreneurship are extremely challenging fields, especially in the current operational environment, the most resilient companies will be able to survive and thrive.

The transformations taking place in the global economy are reshaping the nature of international business and entrepreneurship, presenting both threats and opportunities to new and existing enterprises. The ability to navigate these volatile, uncertain and complex environments brings a competitive edge both personally and to the firm.

You may want to become a successful entrepreneur by creating your own business or to build a successful career in management in existing companies, but to succeed, you will first need to develop the right mindset and skills.

In this programme, you will develop entrepreneurial competencies for creating a new business and leading its growth to international markets despite adversities of The New Normal.
