The Master in International Business (MIB) is a 4-term program completely taught in English, which provides students with the skills and mindset required to succeed in international business. We draw on our sound understanding of business practices and cultures to give students the fundamental skills necessary to manage responsible corporations in different international contexts.

The program will strengthen your theoretical foundations in management, even without an academic background in business.
It provides new and different perspectives that will enrich your knowledge, and hands-on applications that consolidate learning.
All of this happens in a challenging, multinational environment that provides participants with an opportunity to sharpen their intercultural skills.
