The Master in International Business in Spain (MIB)
is a general program with a particular focus on the international aspects of management needed in today’s business world. The program integrates studies in all of the areas of business activity in a quest to develop the most reliable policies and strategies that successfully achieve the objectives of a company in an international environment. The MIB is underpinned by the four fundamental elements of a successful international business education, crucial for establishing roles in today’s multinational and multicultural firms involved in the constantly evolving world of global business: Functional methods and techniques; Personal development; The importance of strategic information decision-making; Creativity and innovation.
No business person can develop their full creative potential in isolation. With this in mind, the MIB combines academic excellence with an in-depth practical knowledge of business and business planning. In addition, our students are also offered a wide range of corporate visits and meetings, and lectures with managers and top executives from successful corporations.

The main objectives of the MIB are:
1- Efficient Management: The rapid changes in the business world require the most up-to-date methodology and techniques for our students so that they can become effective and competitive managers.

Technological advances, improvements in communication and the development of emerging economies have led to greater competition in western countries, which requires adaptation to new situations and new management tools.
3- International Competitiveness: In the world of business, executives must adjust their frame of reference without losing touch with their own values and culture. Specialists and generalists alike understand that competitiveness is a necessary condition, though it is not the only requirement for the survival of a company.
4- Effective Executive Training: MIB’s overall objective is to train leaders who are able to evolve at the heart of complex international markets, capable of inducing and managing flexibility and reactive changes to new technologies, the emergence of new markets and social evolution, and who are open-minded, receptive, capable of communicating and creative.
