The world as an economic area

Internationalization affects companies in almost all countries and industries regardless of their shape and size. Globalization increases competitive pressure and requires business processes to be adapted in an international context. For example, companies are relocating parts of their production to countries with lower labor costs, entering into strategic alliances with foreign partners, or expanding their activities to countries with higher growth potential. Not only large corporations are forced to adapt. Even small and medium-sized enterprises are increasingly seeking to exploit the opportunities of international networks. Whether locations, customers, partners or suppliers who maintain business relationships abroad, all must take into account cultural, political and economic conditions. If you specialize in International Management at the EMS, you are a prepared expert to take on these challenges.

Recognize and exploit the opportunities of world trade

Within the General Management degree program, and starting with the 3rd semester, the specialization International Management will prepare you to take on responsibility in an internationally operating company. This requires profound management skills as well as knowledge of all major global markets and specific risks associated with them. Which strategies are suitable for entering a new market? How do you build promising strategic alliances? International management is always a consideration and evaluation of options. You will deal with institutional conditions and global economic contexts as well as how to deal with business partners and employees in different countries.

Your second pillar of expertise: At the EMS, you will choose two specializations within the General Management degree program. For example, finance or marketing management could ideally complement your expertise.

Internationality as a basis and focus

Through your management studies at the EMS you are already shaping your career with international orientation providing yourself with interesting options in the global job market. English courses are, therefore, part of your program and you can add another foreign language to your portfolio. In addition, we specifically train your intercultural competences and give you the opportunity to extend these in a voluntary semester abroad.

You would like to take a step further towards internationalization: This is an option at the EMS when choosing the degree program International Business. English is the main language of study in this program, and instead of a second specialization, a semester abroad is spent at one of our worldwide partner universities.

Your career world revolves around the globe

With the specialization International Management you are the expert for the interfaces of markets. These can be found in all German companies that have locations or business partners abroad and require country-specific know-how. Conversely, well-trained junior staff is sought in the German branches of global corporations in order to ensure market success and promote cross-border thinking and local expertise.
