Mode of study:
The International Business programme develops specialized knowledge of
international business, emphasizing international economics and trade, international entrepreneurship, and intercultural communication and cooperation. It offers a broad and practical understanding
of international business processes and practices, and provides students with relevant and up-to-date knowledge of today’s interconnected business world.
The programme is committed to combine academic rigour with practical application and
corporate relevance. As a result, it encompasses both the knowledge and understanding of concepts and skills related to international economics and business, and the ability to apply such knowledge
and understanding in a range of practical contexts. Students are asked to apply the theories in practice in various ways, such as projects tackling business problems, real-life case studies,
and a simulation game in the Business Process Simulation Centre.
The curriculum includes a broad mix of courses (taught by Polish and foreign lecturers and
practitioners) related to some aspects of international economics and business, and that together enhance the development of managerial skills, communication skills, strategic thinking, forward
planning skills, teamworking and a curious mindset open to learning new things.
