The Department of International Business cultivates students interested in pursuing careers as researchers, university teachers and as business practitioners in the fields of international economics, international finance, international marketing, and international trade law.
Our interdisciplinary trainings provide strong support for our students to achieve their goals. The Department of International Business disciplines PhD students in four different concentrations while also working collaboratively across area of study. We position students as good candidates to serve in private sectors or to teach at leading business schools.
Analytical Tool Courses
Students take a one-year, graduate level sequence in statistical methods or social research methods among four courses, including advanced qualitative methods, econometrics, social research methods, or microeconomics. Individual areas determine the appropriate sequence and additional courses to prepare students for research in their fields.
These sequences immerse students with research literature and current themes and controversies in the field.
The doctoral program offers five areas of specialization in study, namely, strategic management, marketing management, international business management, operation research and supply chain management, and organizational management and human resources management. At the time of admission, students need to select a specialization. Students have 7 years (max.) to complete their doctoral program. All students have to complete Required Courses and Specialization Required Courses, the eligibility assessment, paper publications, and the doctoral dissertation.
