The International Business programs instill a solid foundation in international business knowledge and practices. With the rapid globalization of business, companies must expand operations internationally to remain competitive. The success and survival of modern companies are dependent upon highly skilled executives competent in the implementation of management and organizational strategies to answer the complexities of business at the international level.
In times of financial and economic crises, there’s a great reconsideration of economic principles taken for granted over years. The International Economics programs thus question these assumptions and provide thorough training in economic theory and policy. These studies examine economics from the individual and firm level to the national and then international level. There is also an emphasis on maintaining a focus on the impact and role of international economic relations and on keeping and internationally comparative perspective.
International Relations Department
If you are interested in human rights, the processes and effects of globalization, economic development and the preeminence of free-market economies under the regime of the World Trade Organization; if you are interested in security, migration, or human rights, or simply the business of being an agent of change in the global market place, then our International Relations program in Heidelberg is for you. We offer a substantive and comprehensive undergraduate and graduate curriculum that focuses on developing transferable critical and analytical skills and competencies while delivering a sound foundation in the interdisciplinary fields of political science and international relations.
Drawing from law, history, philosophy, sociology, and cross-border and cultural commerce, the Bachelor and Masters of Arts in International Relations and Diplomacy are decidedly interdisciplinary. Distinguished academics and seasoned practitioners of diverse backgrounds reflect the cross-cutting issues and interests that inform international relations today.
