Career opportunities

Increasingly, companies assume responsibility for areas that until recently were mainly government concerns: social security networks, technical regulations and general regulations. In addition, consumers are becoming more aware of the form of production in responsible international companies. Pressure from stakeholders has convinced many multinationals that they must adopt corporate citizenship programmes, including policies on environmental responsibility, child labour, conditions in the workplace, and principles of ethics in business practices.

The master's in International Business covers all these aspects and provides students with the knowledge required to manage an international company, taking into account the environment, from the perspective of finance, marketing, operations and logistics, or strategy. On completion of the master's degree, students are ready to work in export companies, multinationals, public entities (in autonomous communities, the state, or internationally) dedicated to economic and trade promotion, and in non-governmental organizations focused on international cooperation.
