International Business Management - Master CUAS

(Graduated in 2018)

Business Development and International Sales, on point medicals GmbH, Klagenfurt


Why I loved studying International Business Management (IBM) at Carinthia University of Applied Sciences (CUAS) is a question that can easily be answered: The program does not only offer a wide range of highly relevant courses on international business topics providing the right know-how for an international career, it also helped me to develop personally by working on and leading various real-life projects for international companies.
Many of the lectures are teaching part-time and working full-time in well-known businesses and institutions worldwide. Especially the variety of these experts, who are spending their valuable free time besides demanding management jobs for teaching, makes the program unique. Due to the small classes, there is always space for personal interactions with the lecturers. This gave me the possibility to learn all skills that I really need in my job as part of the management team in a young enterprise now. I feel perfectly prepared for the challenges that are ahead of me as a young entrepreneur including building up an international customer base for our company.

Besides lectures taught by managers coming from different business fields, the highly practice oriented-approach of the program also includes case studies, guest lectures, projects for companies and excursions to various countries (e.g. Serbia, Italy, Slovenia, or Germany). However, not only the professors and companies were playing an important role during my personal development, also the mix of students from all over the world taught me to handle intercultural differences in a team.

The combination of working and studying at the same time prepared me for the business career that lies in front of me and, because of the excellent study program at CUAS, I feel ready for taking the next step of developing a young and thriving company.
