University of Valencia
Aims and objectives
Since spring 2004, the Faculty of Economics at Universitat de València has offered the official Master in International Business Administration (iMBA) as a member of the International Business School Alliance (IBSA). This Alliance was established in 2003 and is a growing network of internationally oriented business schools.
Students will receive a dual master award as it is compulsory to study in two different countries within the IBSA network of institutions for one academic year. This is a full-time programme for business graduates and all tuition takes place wholly through English.
The iMBA program provides a unique learning experience designed on both students’ needs and graduates’ opportunities. It goes beyond addressing trade issues between countries by encouraging critical analysis of what makes a business competitive in the international context.
The iMBA program aims to train students: For leadership roles where global themes are paramount in the decision-making process;
- For positions where an awareness of economic and cultural diversity is as important as professional managerial skills;
- For fast-changing situations where the ability to adapt quickly can make the difference between business success or failure;
For career opportunities where bilingual or multilingual skills are required.
The iMBA program recruits international, innovative students worldwide from diverse cultural, geographical and professional backgrounds. It facilitates strong interaction and the sharing of experience among students. Studying in two different countries and thus encountering both cultures gives students an excellent chance to communicate and live in both environments successfully. The iMBA provides the knowledge and skills necessary for global leadership in the 21st century.
