DescriptionExtend your knowledge in the areas of business economics and business language.
Career OpportunitiesThis programme prepares you for an internationally oriented career in organisations which require their employees to understand several languages, and the business culture of several countries, as well as having a solid grounding in economics and business administration.
About the DegreeWorking in business enterprises or organisations with an international orientation, one may seldom rely on knowledge of economics and business administration alone. Mastering foreign languages and being able to cope with the challenges of foreign cultures is equally important, for instance when negotiating agreements on financial or other matters.
This programme offers you the opportunity to extend your knowledge in the areas of business economics and business language. Faced with growing political, economic, cultural and social globalisation, business employees will have to be able to work across national and linguistic borders.
This Masters degree will provide you with a high level of qualifications for analysing, evaluating, and performing the tasks involved in the international activities of business enterprises, tasks in which communication and mediation skills often play an important role. Thus the study programme combines foreign language competences with the study of social conditions as well as economic and sociological factors influencing decision-making processes in various cultures.
You have the possibility to get a double degree from SDU and Universität Flensburg as a Cand.Merc.Int student in Flensburg/ Sønderborg.
This degree comprises 2 years of graduate study following the BA in international business administration and modern languages. In addition to its three semesters of teaching, one semester is reserved for writing the master's thesis.
Certain courses are compulsory for all students in the first two semesters. In addition, students must choose one of four profiles as a specialisation (Small Business Management & Entrepreneurship, Strategy & Organisation, Organisational Behaviour & Human Resource Management, Marketing and Media Management). The third semester is spent studying elective modules, while the fourth is reserved for writing of your Masters thesis. You will find an intercultural study environment in Sønderborg and Flensburg, in which foreign languages are not just a study programme, but a part of your everyday life.
