One Study - Two (three) Degrees
We offer the opportunity to enhance the Master of Science in International Management with an additional degree in International Business or Business Information Systems.
MSc in International Business, Anglia Ruskin University
Our close partnership with Anglia Ruskin University (ARU), Lord Ashcroft International Business School (LAIBS), Cambridge, UK, has led to combining our unique master‘s programmes offering outstanding study routes.
Full-time students who spend the second semester at the partner university (ARU for FHNW students, FHNW for ARU students) may qualify for a dual degree, one from each university: MSc in International Business (Anglia Ruskin University, Lord Ashcroft International Business School) and MSc in International Management (University of Applied Sciences Northwestern Switzerland, School of Business). Students start their studies in either centre and then switch location for the second semester.
The dual degree study route integrates Swiss and British culture providing students with experience of the East Anglian and Northwestern Switzerland business clusters, history and culture. In addition to their studying in England and Switzerland, we actively encourage students to take part in a live research project with a corporation, either in the United Kingdom or in Switzerland, or in another country of their choice.
MSc in Business Information Systems, FHNW
The dual degree with the Master of Science in Business Information Systems FHNW is an opportunity for students, who already learned about managing in the sharing economy and digital future but want to actively shape the digital transformation of their enterprises. In the MSc International Management, students learn the internationalization strategies and methods for management, finance, innovation and entrepreneurship, as well as cross-cultural leadership and market behaviors.
In the MSc in Business Information Systems, students will learn about the potential of Information Systems that can help management to advance and digitalize the operation.
