In this one-year Master's programme, you specialise in managerial decision making in a global context, with a keen eye for all stakeholders while managing international businesses.

The Master's programme in International Management at Utrecht University School of Economics (U.S.E.) is a highly international, multidisciplinary management programme that pays attention not just to business issues, but to corporate social responsibility, ethics and human behaviour as well. Founded firmly in economics and international financial management, this specialised MSc is designed for a new generation of managers who understand that the real 'story behind the numbers' includes well being for all stakeholders.

Core to this Master is the management of international operations including entry strategies in foreign markets, cross-border mergers and acquisitions, and cross-cultural leadership. Further, senior executives' main role is to create new opportunities and maximise the impact of firms in society, so there is a strong emphasis in this Master's programme on global innovation strategies, entrepreneurship, and corporate social responsibility.

"The optimal preparation for managerial decision making in a global context.” - Dr. Hein Roelfsema, Assistant Professor
