Learning outcomes Vicenza is the area with the highest export per capita in Italy and among the highest in Europe. The MSc in International Economics and Business Management (IEBM) was thus born in a region particularly open to international firms and trade. It aims to train graduates who can take on managerial responsibilities in firms active on foreign markets both on the production and the marketing sides. The IEBM MSc aims to form experts in the analysis of the dynamics of foreign (real and financial) markets and the organization of the international production and sales. The course is entirely taught in English and is developed to deepen the methodological and operational aspects of economic, business, legal and quantitative disciplines needed to understand the dynamics of international markets and the management of firms operating in global markets.
For this purpose, training in the first year includes courses in Economics that provide students with a working knowledge of the causes and effects of international trade and of the operations in currency markets, together with macroeconomic relations and economic policies in open economies. Training in Economics is completed with classes in international trade related to the processes of internationalization of firms and their production cycles. In the area of International Business, the training includes courses on the management of financial flows, on logistics and international marketing, and on the accounting and management of internationalized groups of firms. Training in this area is then completed by a focus on the problems related to accounting and corporate reporting in multinational firms. Training in the legal field is developed with classes that focus on international law and international commercial law. Last but not least, the formal teaching is completed by a mathematical-statistical track that provides the working knowledge of the quantitative techniques useful to optimally manage and plan the business activities. The training is then strengthened with a structured internship in a firm engaged in international markets and with a thesis to be completed under the supervision of a faculty member. The MSc in IEBM is a unique combination of courses, project works and other learning experiences purposely split between International Economics and International Management. By obtaining the MSc, students will master the tools and acquire the skills in the various subjects related to the internationalization processes of economic activities, enabling them to take on managerial roles in firms and organizations active in international markets.
Roles in a work context:
- Analysis of productive and territorial systems.
- International economic analysis.
- International financial analysis.
- Management of logistics and international marketing.
- Management of group accounting and management reporting.
Competences associated with the roles:
The MSc in IEBM enables students to acquire skills and competences, with a strong economic, management and legal emphasis, in the advanced study of production and territorial systems, of international economics and policies, of financial market techniques and international development, as well as methods and models for logistics and marketing, group accounting and management reporting, which can all be used for the management of firms with a strong international characterization. All seen in the institutional framework of international commercial and tax law.
Employment opportunities:
The training is aimed to ensure a suitable employment in the numerous and different professional managerial roles currently required by firms, organizations and institutions which operate in international markets. The depth of the acquired skills will enable graduates to pursue managerial careers within these roles, which are continuously growing due to the globalization processes of modern economies.
