Master Program in International Business
Lead, collaborate, inspire and be inspired. Master the challenges of management, innovation and strategy in global organizations through in-depth courses, live projects and on an exchange term at another top university. The MSc Program in International Business is integrated with the CEMS Master in International Management and you will therefore be awarded two degrees upon completion of your studies.
You will work on an advanced level with topics focused on running and developing global organizations. Throughout the program, you will use strategy and marketing tools to put the firm in context and explore how firms influence their competitive environments. You will also learn how to make firms grow and prosper from the inside, through innovations and management practices that build operational excellence.
“It's all in the mix: We have a very international student body, we have a very international faculty, and we get to do exciting international field trips – this year for example, we went to Riga and to Mumbai.”
Lea Löbel, student from Germany
MSc program in International Business (CEMS MIM), 1st year
Leadership and teamwork in multi-cultural contexts is studied as well as practiced through live projects and group work, and reflected upon through interaction with executives. Ethics and CSR are integrated in several courses to mirror the integrated role it should have in everyday decision-making. Language and skills training provides the essential management communication tools needed for your future work. You will work with real “live” projects together with corporate partners of CEMS and of SSE.
Through the combination of topics covered in the program, you will acquire a deep and integrated understanding of how international firms and other organizations function, how to navigate them to achieve results, and, last but not least, how to improve them and the things they do.
We fully integrate the CEMS Master in International Management into the program. Upon fulfilling the graduation requirements of SSE and of CEMS, you will be awarded both a Master of Science degree from SSE and a Master's degree from CEMS, the prestigious global alliance of management education.
