Getting ready for an international career

International Business Management students are able to act successfully in changing international labour market conditions. They are trained to communicate skillfully in German, French, and English as well as having the opportunity to take elective language courses such as Spanish and Chinese. Most important of all is their ability to see the world through the eyes of others. The degree programme develops managers with outstanding cross-cultural competence who are mobile and flexible and who are keen to go on learning throughout life. Most of the graduates have become managers in international organizations and corporations or project leaders of multicultural teams. They have been offered attractive job positions with major corporations in Europe and around the world, typically as project managers, product managers, marketing managers, Human Resource (HR) specialists, business analysts, key account managers, supply chain specialists, purchasing managers and consultants, etc. Many successful graduates go on to study at master’s level, for example the MSc in International Management at our School of Business. Others study in master’s programmes that specialize in areas such as economics, banking and finance, marketing or HR, either in Switzerland or abroad.
