Brief description:

The Masters Course in International Management, now in its 11th year, prepares highly specialized students in the field of international business and trade.
Organized by ISTAO in collaboration with ICE (Governamental Agency for the internationalization of Italian companies), Confindustria Marche (Italian Employers’ federation) and the Government of the Marche Region, the Master represents one of the most important and valuable programs for new graduates approaching the business world: the themes of internationalization have always been central to business, but they have taken on a more strategic role in recent years, marked by economic difficulties in countries that were traditionally leaders of the world economy and by the rapid emergence of new major players.

The Master in International Management is a nine month full-time multidisciplinary course, aimed at working through practice to build the theory. The interactive lessons are divided into thematic modules with strong international orientation, project work and simulations.
The course includes the systematic alternation of theory , techniques and management practice (through case studies, story telling) and utilizes group work, exercises and in-the-field simulations, project work and internships that allow participants to operate in an international context.
The lecturers are accredited professionals, consultants, company managers and academics who perfected their expertise in international firms and markets.

Working language: The course will mainly be held in English. Italian will be the second/supporting language.
