How do you successfully manage people and processes in multinationals in different countries and settings?

This 90 ECTS double Master’s degree (offered in cooperation with Uppsala University) acquaints you with all aspects of managing multinational organizations, and their structures and strategies, from the inside out. You will study multinationals and their strategies from a global perspective, but will also learn about managing individuals working at multinationals.

You will acquire theoretical knowledge in relevant fields, ranging from corporate strategy to international human resource management and leadership. You will train your analytical skills, for example in thorough comparative analyses of the cultural and institutional environments in different countries. You will also get the opportunity to develop intercultural competence and teamwork skills hands-on, through (virtual) international teamwork and your stay abroad.
