Students will complete basic courses in management (Research Methods and Managerial Economics) and subjects focused specifically on international management (e.g., Global Strategies and New Business Models, International Financial Management, HR Management in International Companies, and International Marketing).
Coursework will also focus on the modern context of the global economy, especially as it relates to sustainable development. Courses include Digital Business Transformation, Business Ethics and Sustainability, Corporate Responsibility and Social Entrepreneurship, and one elective course from another Master’s programme related to global challenges.
Students can choose one of two tracks to prepare for a comprehensive consulting project.
The first track includes courses in
- Digital Marketing in Creative Industries (CIs),
- E-business and E-commerce in CIs,
- Sharing Economy and Innovation Management in CIs.
Courses in the second track include
- Global Supply Chain Management (SCM) and Logistics,
- Business Analytics in SCM,
- Digital Transformation in SCM.
Project and consulting work form the core of the programme, with projects carried out in small groups during the entire period of study. A number of top Russian companies serve as partners of the MIB programme for this project work, including:
- Pulkovo Airport
- State Hermitage Museum
Graduates will have opportunities to build careers in companies operating in global markets. Positions held by graduates will likely include project managers, business consultants, and development directors focused on introducing new business models in the context of companies’ digital transformation.
Prospective students interested in applying to the programme should submit a portfolio. As the programme is taught in English, applicants are required to take a test in English proficiency before they can enrol.
