Master of Business Administration (American MBA
degree) in International Business Relations with focus on Cultural Diplomacy
& emphasis on the Global economy and international dimensions of Business.
The Joint Master of
Business Management Studies (MBA) in International Business Relations will
combine the traditional academic components of business administration with a
new focus on Cultural Diplomacy and International Business components with an
emphasis on the global economy and international dimensions of business. The
program guarantees students additional expertise in the field of cultural
diplomacy, a new and attractive field of studies, which is currently offered as
an academic field only through the Center for Cultural Diplomacy Studies of the
Institute for Cultural Diplomacy. This particular emphasis on Cultural
Diplomacy with its historical and contemporary application in the public
sector, private sector and civil society, provides students expertise in three
distinct academic fields, giving an
academic and practical advantage for the European, American and Global arenas. Combined with the fully
accredited American MBA in Business studies offered by Touro College Berlin,
the program provides a substantial background for successful future careers.
The Master of Business
Administration (MBA) degree prepares students to manage business,
organizational, and cultural initiatives within our increasingly complex global
business environment. Through its innovative, interdisciplinary curriculum,
this practitioner-oriented degree offers both novice and seasoned managers a
comprehensive business education built on proven adult learning principles. The
program integrates key foundational theories, models, and best practices from
diverse disciplines, enabling students to develop global perspectives and
practical knowledge for managing people and productivity in international
environments. On a practical level, the international environment of the Center
for Cultural Diplomacy Studies and Touro College Berlin offers students a
unique opportunity to interact with leading experts and academics from a wide
variety of international organizations and research centers. This exceptional
learning environment leads to original research and independent study opportunities.
It allows students to create an extensive professional network and form a
concrete base for future academic and professional career choices, preparing
students for engagement in the international arena, civil society, politics,
governmental organizations and international economic organizations, as well as
the private sector.
The Master of Business
Administration is an American 42-credit program that is normally completed
within three semesters and one summer school session. Full-time students take
four 3-credit courses each semester, for 12 credits per semester.
