From simple exports to foreign direct investment or participation in border-crossing networks, economic markets are becoming increasingly globalised. Consequently, today’s firms have to be able to adapt and respond to the changing character of the social, political, and technological forces at work in the global economic markets. The MSc in International Business deals with the internationalisation of businesses and related international activities.

In the first year, the programme addresses the key concepts of internationalisation, organisation, and management of foreign operations in order to familiarise the student with the challenges of economic globalisation and how to handle them. The emergence of global enterprises, emerging markets, global sourcing, the development of intercultural competencies, and the organisation of multinational corporations are covered, alongside the analytical tools necessary to research these topics. In the third semester, you can choose elective courses at Aarhus University, AU Summer University or (as an exchange student) at one of three hundred partner universities abroad. You also have the possibility to combine electives with an internship to strengthen your practical skill-set. Finally, the fourth semester is devoted to the master’s thesis. 

Career Opportunities  

    The MSc in International Business offers the knowledge and skills required to take part in processes and business activities that span multiple national contexts. Many alumni therefore choose to work in an international business context, or in international service companies offering consultancy services.
