Austria’s export economy has succeeded in setting international standards in many fields, notably in industrial plants, machinery, technological goods and services and sustainable solutions. These global operations generate a high demand for suitably qualified marketing and sales personnel. The geographical focus of the degree programme is on emerging markets.
The Master’s degree programme Global Sales and Marketing equips the students with skills and knowledge to DEVELOP and MANAGE future marketing and sales activities for international companies. For such managers, it is essential to be aware of cross-cultural challenges created by the globalisation and digitalisation of the world economy. A typical job description would be a management position in a subsidiary of a European company, brand manager, key account manager or marketing and sales manager. In addition, the course offers an excellent basis for entrepreneurs wishing to set up their own company.
