International Business – Sustainable Global Business, Master of Science (Economics and Business Administration) (2 years)

MIB focuses on the identification and management of challenges arising from planning, controlling and coordinating business operations for sustainable global business. Courses consist of a variety of teaching methods ranging from traditional lectures to problem-based learning, projects, role plays, group works, individual assignments, simulations, and other leading edge tools to advance learning both in and out of the classroom. Guest speakers from business partners will give insights on the studied matters to boost your comprehension of real issues. Our capstone course “Sustainable Global Business in Practice” offers challenging but rewarding learning experience in turning theory into practice with partner companies. A customized personal competence development plan is designed to help you focus on developing the kind of relevant competences you need after graduation to build a career that best suits your interests and strengths. MIB's Mentoring programme and double degree options in Italy, France, Germany and Czech Republic offer great opportunities for personal development and improving the transition from university to work. In addition, MIB recommends students to be active in applying for internship positions in Finland and abroad during summer and the second year of studies to improve the skills and attitudes required in different positions.
