Strategic, financial, business and leadership capabilities

The Master of International Business and Finance programme is a 3-term programme. An important element of this programme is cross-cultural exposure. All students are required to study for one term at a partner university.

The core of the programme aims at the following areas:

  • Professional expertise: Students will acquire in-depth knowledge of the complex structure of financial markets, financial communications, and corporate financial and governance issues. In turn, they will be able to make decisions autonomously.
  • Communication expertise: By learning both the potential and limitations of different methods and instruments of financial communications, students are able to apply important rules and to comply with capital market regulations in everyday business.
  • International exposure: First hand cross-cultural experience is acquired at a partner university outside of Germany.
  • Social competence: Through active learning, students are trained in leadership skills to manage complex tasks independently and experience team work.

Career Opportunities

Upon graduation, students will be able to advance to leadership positions in multinational and medium-sized companies. Graduates will specialize in financial and entrepreneurial-driven fields of activity
