Careers

Career outlook

A BA in International Management opens the door to the entire corporate world and will show future employers that you are talented, strategic and adaptable. With sound knowledge in general business management and a specialisation in your preferred area, you can go on to find a successful career in a company and country of your choosing.

Management Consultant

As a management consultant, your job is to advise other companies. The subject of the consultation could be related to the general management of the company, internationalisation projects or the handling of a change process. You will need to tailor your fundamental consulting concept to the expectations and the requirements of your customer, without neglecting the goals of your employer – the consultancy firm.

International Talent Manager

International talent managers support HR teams, helping them search for talents and managers and developing their skills within the company. You will plan and organise new talent across borders and prepare trainees, employees and managers for assignments abroad and international projects. With a special focus on intercultural skills, you will create training programmes, ensure efficient succession from one employee to the next as well as job rotation with the aim of training international managers.

International Brand Manager

As an international brand manager, you will have two main tasks: branding and brand communication. You will ensure that all brand design and messaging is executed perfectly with an effective communications strategy developed in close collaboration with management. You will source and define the right instruments and channels for effective marketing. You will also make sure that advertising campaigns are tailored perfectly to each target audience. This requires a deep understanding of the product world, target groups, intercultural differences and your industry. This is an exciting and creative career at the interface between management, research and development, product, creative departments, sales, service and, of course, customers.
