Study Paths - Degree Programme in International Business Management

Haaga-Helia's Master's Programmes are being renewed for application in Spring 2019. Starting from autumn 2019, Degree Programme in International Business Management is called Degree Programme Leading Business Transformation.

The IBMA Programme, together with other master’s degree programmes of Haaga-helia in English, offers students a wide range of Compulsory and Elective Advanced Professional Studies in international business (including study tours to Silicon Valley and to Hong Kong) and Free-Choice Studies.

In addition, students can take courses from other Haaga-Helia master's degree programmes, as well as master courses from Open University after getting approval from their academic advisor, as their Elective Advanced Professional Studies (EAPS). These courses could be chosen to fit best with the students’ personal development areas and with the development needs of their workplace defined in their personal study plans (PSPs). Students can start to take elective courses from the beginning of their studies. In addition to their studies included in their Master's degree (90 ECTS), students can take unlimited number of courses related to their thesis or/and to their interests as their additional studies.
