Would you like to learn how to sail into the water of global markets? To use Economics to understand how the global economy works and why and how firms decide to go international? To practice Management, Logistics, and Law to manage such multinational firms? To master Accounting tools to account for and analyze their performances? Born and grown in a region with a strong international vocation, the two-year Master's degree (MSc) in International Economics and Business Management (IEBM) aims to train post-graduate students in the fields of International Economics, International Business Management, and International Law.

The MSc is entirely taught in English in Vicenza, a close-by subsidiary of the University of Verona. Verona is the top European freight village. Vicenza is the third Italian province for total export and the first one in terms of export per capita. In such an area many Small and Medium Enterprises – very open to international markets, i.e., they are referred to as ’pocket-size multinationals’ – operate with a core specialization in the ‘well-done’ and ‘well-designed’ sectors that form the backbone of the ‘Made in Italy’ label.

Among the main topics of the MSc courses are the followings: causes and consequences of international trade and development; macroeconomic dynamics of open economies and international financial markets; export, offshoring and outsourcing decisions by heterogeneous firms and their participation into global value chains; international marketing and logistic decisions; networks and groups as a means for firm internationalization; consolidated reporting, performance analysis and cost accounting; international and European law; international business law.

The MSc in IEBM is a unique combination of courses, project works and other learning experiences purposely split between International Economics and International Business Management. Students’ active participation in classroom seminars and project works is strongly encouraged. Every year several foreign teachers are invited to give lectures on special parts of the MSc courses. The training is then strengthened with structured internships in firms actively engaged in international markets and with a thesis to be completed under the supervision of a faculty member.

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 managerial reporting, all of which can be used for the management of firms and organizations with a strong international characterization. All seen in the institutional framework of international commercial and tax law. In short, by obtaining this 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 and consulting positions in firms and organizations active in international markets.

The MSc in IEBM is open to students with an undergraduate background in Economics and Management interested in the international dimension of economic activity at both the firm and the macro level. More in detail, the admission requirements are the following:
