International Business

The exchange and trade of goods and services is what defines all our human relationships. That is why I am sure economics needs to have a human perspective and be guided by clear values. I want to understand the economy as something that is not merely a way of maximizing returns and having simply a profit mentality, but by sustainability and commitment. An economy where globalization is perceived not as a threat but as an opportunity for fair and humane treatment. This is one of the reasons I chose the International Business study program at Karlshochschule.

Because here the economy is studied not just in economic terms, but also as a cultural and linguistic phenomenon. Here is where I can acquire the ability to identify differences within and between cultures and to act with confidence on an international level. One of the things that has helped me has been the wide range of management tools available to me at Karlshochschule.

One of the other benefits is that the International Business course has a completely international orientation: Right from the beginning, English is the course language, and learning at least one of another seven languages, such as Chinese or Russian, is mandatory.
