International Business in Developing and Emerging Markets – IBDEM
Idea of IBDEM
The Master Programme of International Business in Developing and Emerging Markete provides future managers with theoretical and practical insights into international business and economics. It permits the students to understand and participate in today‘s and future opportunities in transition and development issues of worldwide business.
This Master is designed to offer market oriented business training in modern management and practice for young future East and West managers. It has a distinct economics and international business flavour with a special focus on industrial economics and includes some complementary modules supplying other important competencies.
The first two semesters consist of mandatory and optional courses at TU Bergakademie Freiberg. A fundamental knowledge of modern economics, especially of the economies of developing, emerging, and former transition countries, as well as knowledge in special fields of international management, are an integral part of the Freiberg modules.
In the second year, the students have the opportunity to spend one semester abroad at a partner university. In the last semester, a three month internship leads the student into a master thesis that can be written and supervised in Freiberg or a partner university.
The programme offers the possibility to do a double MBA with a selection of partner universities. All courses of the international programme in Freiberg and abroad are taught in English.
