INBUS2

The objective of the English-taught Degree Programme in International Business is to prepare students for specialised tasks in international business and marketing. The students get an overall picture of business management and will focus on the international operations of companies and organisations. The operational environment of today's enterprises is based on international networks to an ever-increasing extent. The students will be competent in international business operations, marketing and management. Students will do practical training to reinforce the theoretical knowledge they have learned in these areas during their studies. The degree programme is based on well-founded understanding of entrepreneurship and small- and medium-sized enterprises. Students also acquire good practical language skills through working and studying abroad during a period of one academic year. At the final stage of their studies, students are given an opportunity to deepen their knowledge of the business and culture of a target area of their choice in connection with their practical training and thesis work. In addition to the above-mentioned competencies, students may engage in the following: • Yritystalli provides students with the opportunity to develop their own business idea and competence as an entrepreneur while they study. • Students have the opportunity to complete a double degree, one in SeAMK and one in a partner institution abroad.

Curricula description
 
Degree program
INBUS2  Degree Programme in International Business
The objective of the English-taught Degree Programme in International Business is to prepare students for specialised tasks in international business and marketing. The students get an overall picture of business management and will focus on the international operations of companies and organisations.

The operational environment of today's enterprises is based on international networks to an ever-increasing extent. The students will be competent in international business operations, marketing and management. Students will do practical training to reinforce the theoretical knowledge they have learned in these areas during their studies.

The degree programme is based on well-founded understanding of entrepreneurship and small- and medium-sized enterprises. Students also acquire good practical language skills through working and studying abroad during a period of one academic year. At the final stage of their studies, students are given an opportunity to deepen their knowledge of the business and culture of a target area of their choice in connection with their practical training and thesis work.

In addition to the above-mentioned competencies, students may engage in the following:
• Yritystalli provides students with the opportunity to develop their own business idea and competence as an entrepreneur while they study.
• Students have the opportunity to complete a double degree, one in SeAMK and one in a partner institution abroad.
