Masters in International Management offered at the Alpen-Adria University is a comprehensive business and management program. Over the span of 2 years, I learned important management, finance and business concepts that I currently use at my work every day.As a director business development and sales for an international company, I interact confidently with customers globally. This is thanks to the emphasis that the program had on doing business internationally. The program explained key concepts of international economics, financial management, new market development, new products and their life cycles and understanding how cultures play an important role in doing business. A lot of the course work had to be done as a team which helped me to understand how to work with cross-functional teams.

In a nutshell masters in International Management is a program offers its students a good balance of theoretical business and management concepts and their practical application which is useful in today’s global business.

Each day I am able to tap into the knowledge I acquired during my International Management studies. Because the Master degree is quite broad, you can use the theories in so many different situations. In particular, I find that I frequently refer back to the financial part of the programme, while in general, my improved business vocabulary in English has proved very useful.

"The master’s programme International Management offers excellent student services and a highly professional linkage of theory input and practice. Moreover exchange of experiences between international students and a mandatory semester abroad provide ideal prerequisites to pursue an international career.
