International Business Administration (Internationale BWL) with special focus

International and interdisciplinary, with a strong strategic and practical focus: welcome to the International Business and Economic Diplomacy master degree programme!

Slowbalisation vs. Globalisation 4.0

Although protectionism and initiatives aimed at decentralising politics are increasingly the focus of attention, digitalisation and new business models are resulting in ever closer ties between consumers and producers.

This has enabled companies to develop new global markets and change existing ones, but it is also bringing about shifts in political, economic and social frameworks.

International Business meets Economic Diplomacy

The interplay between the core elements of the programme, international business and economic diplomacy, enables our graduates to play a part in companies’ internationalisation processes.

Thanks to their sound knowledge of international market dynamics, graduates can identify business potential, and their expertise also supports successful execution of these commercial activities through establishment of a network of key international stakeholders.

Study the international way

Studying the international way: you will be studying alongside colleagues from around the world, discussing cultures, global events and economic developments with lecturers who have an interdisciplinary, international background, and exchanging notes at guest lectures and on visits to international businesses and organisations. You also have the option of spending the fourth semester at one of our partner universities.


Do you want to strike the right balance between studying and your work commitments? Or would you prefer to have the weekends off? We offer two study-time models for this part-time master degree programme: you can attend courses either on Thursdays and Fridays, or on Fridays and Saturdays.

The programme also includes courses and excursions spread over a total of three block weeks. So the degree is perfectly compatible with professional and/or family commitments.
