The MSc in International Management is designed for graduates who wish to develop some of the key knowledge and competencies to pursue international business careers, across numerous sectors and industries, within multinational organisations or in a global environment at home or abroad. It provides an in-depth understanding of the successful management of the global enterprise and develops an international, cross-cultural and global mindset among international managers of the future.
A transnational network of partners providing experiences in Europe, Asia and Latin America reflected in a diverse cohort with multinational students from diverse academic backgrounds “on the road”.
Established and close relationships with international corporations and industry practitioners in the development and delivery of the programme.
Real life learning and close relationships to practitioners through practice based activities and internships
The philosophy of the programme derives from the principles of reflective practice and experiential learning. Students will engage with principles and theories of business, management and organisation which will provide them with frameworks for reviewing, reflecting, analysing and critiquing existing individual and organisational practices as well as providing new knowledge and skills which will enable enhanced and more appropriate practices to be developed.
First year courses are directed at mastering the key fundamentals of international management practices so as to create a sound knowledge base from which to work.
Courses are divided into two academic semesters. The first semester is held in France at the ICN Business School in Nancy and the second in Italy at the UNIBO School of Economics, Management and Statistics in Forlì and Bologna.
Each School integrates company visits to coursework, introducing the local economy and business environment to the students. Industry leaders and managers are also invited to hold workshops and seminars throughout the year, providing practical application to accompany the theoretical framework of the programme.
Of great importance, the Field Work Activity carried out at UNIBO in groups and coached by company supervisors where students serve as an external task force for the company on an assigned project on issues with strong international dimension.
During Year 2, the student will attend one semester of courses in one of the partner universities of the Master MIEX network (semester 1) and therefore focus on on a specific market area.
During the second semester and depending on the 2nd Year location, the student prepares a double degree including a Master Thesis or finds an in-company internship (Project Work).
