In today’s rapidly globalising world, more and more businesses are looking for ways to advance internationally. Whether you are a small, local entrepreneur doing business just across the border, or a multinational with multiple offices worldwide, you need to understand what is happening across the border in order to develop successful business strategies. The specialisation in International Management & Consultancy will help you become an expert in helping businesses operate internationally.
You will gain unique expertise in international entrepreneurship, change management and consulting, organisational behaviour, international business development, international strategising, cross-cultural differences, and global supply chain management. Whether in changing operations management, leading people of various cultural backgrounds, reaching new markets, sourcing, or acquiring new companies, your expertise will be highly valued by many businesses worldwide.
How can you manage a change project within an organisation that has multiple offices or plants within different countries?

You will learn how to help international businesses raise and stay on top and develop effective cross-border strategies and operations. Moreover, you will learn to navigate the opportunities and risks of global sourcing, co-lead (global) change projects, and deal with cross-cultural differences on globalised work floors.
Experienced guest lecturers from successful businesses around the globe (e.g. ING Bank, KPMG, Heineken) as well as (award-winning) professors with (international) business and consultancy experience, will share their knowledge with you. They will provide you with the very latest scientific insights in management trends such as agile, lean, digitalisation, Industry 4.0, and appreciative inquiry.
