Small country - big business: Luxembourg has a highly dynamic and exceptionally international economy.

The country already exports over 85% of its production. There is consequently a high level of demand for managers with international management skills - leaders who, with their knowledge of the complexity of global markets, make sound, forward-looking entrepreneurial decisions, can responsibly manage multicultural teams and successfully represent the interests of their company in an international environment. The Master degree course in Business Administration teaches you these skills.

About

The MBA programme was especially developed for students with a Bachelor degree in a non-economical field who wish to supplement their specialist knowledge with a generalist business expertise. In addition to offering a thorough understanding of applied economics, the MBA also focuses on the development of leadership qualities such as motivational and communication skills. In this four-semester programme, you will take an in-depth look at issues relating to strategic management and sharpen your understanding of the different operative areas such as finance, law, human resources and marketing as well as international relations.

After four semesters, you will complete your studies with
the accredited academic degree Master of Business Administration (MBA).

 

I am currently pursuing a master’s degree at the ISEC after having finished my Bachelor degree. The ISEC MBA is the most challenging academic effort I have to accomplish but also the most rewarding as it enables me to get a much deeper understanding of how to contribute to a company‘s success. The skills and experiences we acquire throughout the programme will give us – students - the right mind set and confidence to face any challenge we might encounter in the future. Most importantly, I have added life-long friends. Pursuing the MBA at the ISEC is the best option for professionals who wish to continue their academic education while keeping their daytime job.
