IBS offers two full-time international master’s programmes

The duration of both master’s programmes is 18 months. The programmes are completed in three semesters, starting in September each year. The first two semesters are characterised by course work and the third semester focuses on conducting research in either a business context or in an area linked to the start-up of a new company.

Educational concept

Our programmes enable you to master competences, skills and creativity that are crucial for making complex business decisions, within a dynamic and rapidly changing environment. Throughout both the master’s programmes we will focus your attention on real-life cases, which you will solve individually or in a group. Learning from truly authentic examples gives you invaluable preparation for a successful career in international management. The courses are delivered in small groups with intensive contact between students and lecturers. You will interact with business practices through guest lectures by entrepreneurs, senior business executives and knowledge experts, as well as seminars and company visits. Our faculty is composed to ensure an interesting mixture of business experience and expertise in research and there is a strong emphasis on the integration of different knowledge areas.

Boardroom approach in master's education

​The concept of ‘the Boardroom’ gives every course a unique setting, which prepares you for complex decision making in a dynamic international business environment. To create a business plan, get a go-ahead and begin implementation of the plan, you must communicate and cooperate with external stakeholders, as well as colleagues in all layers of an organisation. Therefore, the master’s also have a strong focus on developing intercultural competences that you can apply in an authentic business setting.
