IBS offers two full-time international master's programmes (18 months). Both programmes enable students to master competences, skills and creativity that are crucial for making complex business decisions, within a dynamic and rapidly changing environment. The courses are delivered in small groups with intensive contact between students and lecturers. Our faculty is composed to ensure an interesting mixture of business experience and expertise in research and there is a strong emphasis on the integration of different knowledge areas.

Students in the Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA) programme can specialize in International Marketing, International Management, International Finance & Accounting and International Strategy & Business Development. Every year more students join us, which means that there are various opportunities to join our team of lecturers.
With one exception (Internationale Betriebswirtschaft, part of BBA) all programmes are fully taught in English. Teaching at IBS means working in a truly international environment. With over 1,500 students from all over the world and over 100 employees with relevant international experience, the most noticeable characteristic of the International Business School is its international atmosphere. The 70+ nationalities contribute to an open-minded and culturally diverse setting throughout our entire school. The language of communication within IBS is English.

A balance is sought between theoretical and practical knowledge in order to prepare our students for today's global economy. Lecturing at IBS should preferably be combined with research, contributions to conferences and (academic) journals.
