Course Description

Course Profile

Second degree studies in the field of “International Management and Intercultural Communication in Business – Global MBA” are a unique program providing graduate students the opportunity to combine intensive classroom study with residential experiences in four countries: Germany, Poland, South Korea and the United States.

The GlobalMBA is offered by a consortium of four outstanding universities:

University of Warsaw, Poland

Technische Hochschule Köln, Germany

University of North Florida, USA

Kyungpook National University, Sth. Korea

Each university selects a group of students up to 10 who function as a cohort throughout the GlobalMBA. The cohort, of maximum of 40 students, studies together, spending 2 – 4 months at each institution. The curriculum includes courses in the international and global aspects of each business discipline consisting of the courses in management, economics and finance, in addition to subjects on intercultural communication and international business environments in each country.

Accentuated by the multinational cohort format of the GlobalMBA, the program’s intercultural communication component is given as much weight as the functional business component. Students study their host countries’ business and communication practices during each of the four semesters and internalize what they learn by living and traveling with their international colleagues. Group work is emphasized both in class settings and in the master’s thesis: research, writing and defense. All instruction is in English.

The experience and knowledge that program students gain by living, studying, and learning about four diverse countries and working closely with the international students in the program prepares them for exciting careers in international business. Critical thinking and leadership skills are also honed throughout the 15 months of this academically and socially challenging program.

Our alumni are hired for positions in all business disciplines and sectors - in multinational corporations, non-profit organizations, governmental organizations, and more.

The study program is prepared on the basis of four following pillars:

1. international management covering issues from the areas of international economics, strategy, marketing, financial management, human resource management and organization theory;

2. intercultural competences achieved through the implementation of seminars on the theory and practice of intercultural communication in individual countries;

3. problem-solving skills in the international environment of the enterprise implemented by means of a group project leading to the defense of the thesis;

4. development of digital skills and transversal competences, the teaching of which is integrated in all subject modules and leads to the acquisition of basic competences in the area of digitization, business analytics and technological strategy.
