If you are interested in a career in an international environment, the Master's programme International Business Relations is right for you. Thanks to three specialisations, you have the opportunity to align your studies with your personal interests: International Business Law, International Financial Management or International Marketing. The specialisation is part of your studies from the first semester on. Apart from the specialisation, all students are taught the subtleties of strategic management, CEE business relations, leadership, innovation and entrepreneurship. As a special feature, we give you the opportunity to learn a Central or Eastern European language during your studies and thus add a unique skill to your CV. Or you can opt for improving your business English.
If you want to study with us, ideally you already work in a marketing or finance department or are active in project management. Your work focus may not yet be international, but in the next few years you may have tasks in and in connection with foreign countries waiting for you. Ideally, you should come from a bachelor's programme in business administration or economics, or you should have at least 14 ECTS in business administration and 6 ECTS in law. All in all, the programme is composed in such a way that it imparts general management skills (e.g. entrepreneurship, innovation management), enables specialisation in marketing, finance or law, trains personal behavioural and communication skills (e.g. negotiation training) and improves (English) or conveys (Central or Eastern European language) language skills.
The studies are organised on a part-time basis and we don't want to hide the fact that we demand a lot from our students. As a university of applied sciences with over 70% of its students working part-time, we know about the specific needs of studying alongside the job. We respond by announcing the attendance dates in good time, which are usually fixed at the time of your application. On the other hand, we try to keep attendance times as short as possible. You complete 30% of your studies online, using additional teaching inputs, guest lectures, group meetings or case studies in the virtual classroom. We also develop module parts of asynchronous online teaching. Nevertheless, you should keep the after-work hours free for online teaching for the time of your studies. In general, your study schedule is designed in such a way that you do not have to take up any vacation or time compensation days for face-to-face or online phases. Nevertheless, you should give this study project the place it deserves in your life.
If you would like to do a doctorate as part of your scientific thesis, the FH Burgenland offers you the possibility of a postgraduate international PhD-programme. Graduates of the Master's Program in International Economic Relations are invited to apply for the PhD-programme in International Economic Relations and Management.
