Master in International Business and Management MSc
Master in International Business and Management
The European College of Business and Management (ECBM) is specialised in part-time Business and Management studies. The flexible and compact structure gives participants the perfect prerequisite for successful part-time business studies after the career entry.
The programme is suitable for bachelor graduates who wish to focus on an international career and wish to gain knowledge in general business on an international basis.
The programme starts yearly in autumn and is taught entirely in English. It mainly takes place on weekend seminars in Germany and UK (London).
- Communication in an International Business World
- International Business Culture for Managers
- Managing International Brands
- Managing Resources Internationally
- Research Methods for Managers
Students choose one option out of the two subjects below (subject to minimum group numbers):
- Business Ethics
- Managing Human Resource Strategy
In addition to taught modules students need to submit a research project (15,000-18,000 words). The dissertation gives students the opportunity of undertaking a significant piece of independent research which applies appropriate business management and academic research concepts to investigate a significant organisational issue or problem.
Students are expected to actively participate in the seminars and therefore must complete the directed reading instruction from tutors, given in the preparation phase, to engage with the module content before coming to a session.
As a student on the programme you will have access to our student platform at any place and time. Even when you are away you can access the teaching material, get in touch with tutors as well as your fellow students regarding group work and study questions. In addition to the teaching material, supplied via our student platform prior to any teaching session, every participant receives access to the university’s online resources and various electronic journal services with a broad range of relevant literature.
The programme is suitable for applicants with a Bachelor degree or Bachelor Professional (CCI), which may be in a business subject but degrees in other disciplines can also be considered.
A good level of proficiency in the English language is required as the entire programme is delivered in English. Applicants need a minimum score of 6.5 (overall) in the IELTS test to prove their English skills. You do not need to take the IELTS test if you have already achieved a Bachelor from a UK university.
“My time at the ECBM developed me personally and professionally. The MSc perfectly delivers a combination of academic research and practically oriented modules.”
