The programme aims at preparing students for challenging positions in multinational companies or in internationally active public organisations. In particular, graduates are familiar with state-of-the-art techniques of International Business and have acquired leadership skills for a cross-cultural business environment.

  • Professional competence
    Students increase their professional competence by deepening their already existing knowledge of business issues and by adding an international dimension to skills and tools acquired in their undergraduate business or management studies.
  • Methodological expertise
    They further develop their ability to apply quantitative and qualitative analytical methods to business-related studies.
  • Social competences
    Students further improve their competencies in self-management and team work, in particular in a multicultural environment.
  • Leadership skills
    Skills such as communication, motivation, and building trust in personal relations and organisations develop further.
  • Language and cross-cultural management skills
    A culturally diverse student group, one or two semesters spent abroad, and the obligation to use foreign languages prepare the students for the working environment encountered in multinational companies and institutions.


The MA.IB programme takes 4 semesters in total. MA.IB students spend their first academic year at Mainz University of Applied Sciences, where they are familiarised with the core subjects of international business. The third semester takes place abroad at one of our partner universities and is dedicated to the respective specialisation. During their fourth and final semester, students will work on their master's thesis either at the partner university or in Mainz. The program also includes an eight-week applied project, which is an internship / practical training period.
