A Master’s degree from SRH University of Applied Sciences Berlin is an excellent foundation for tackling management tasks in industry or for realizing your academic aspirations towards a doctoral thesis. Today, operating internationally is required in almost every economic sector and area. Knowledge of global strategic management - such as intercultural management as well as European and international foreign trade laws - is necessary to successfully conduct international business relations. The essential know-how for contract closure is presented in the subject area of contract management - contract knowledge management and contract design law, negotiation and conflict management, international private law and comparison of legal orders. Methodologies from all of these disciplines are embedded in a sequence of real-life projects and ultimately lead up to the completion of a Master's thesis.

CKM Model Berlin

Every manager of a company has to understand the risk/reward profile of a business opportunity. He wants to decide whether a particular opportunity is worth pursuing or a particular risk is worth taking. The CKM Model Berlin, explained by Prof. Dr. Bert Eichhorn, is about how a manager can use contracts to manage particular risk in the face of legal uncertainty.

Top 5 Reasons to Study International Management at SRH Berlin

International Scope

        All of our programmes (abroad and in Berlin) prepare you for a career on the global stage. A large number of our faculty come from international backgrounds and our M.A. student body is 85% international, which means you will be exposed to diverse perspectives whether you choose to stay in Berlin or go abroad during the course of your studies. Our extensive international network of partner universities provides you with further opportunities to broaden the scope of your studies and we encourage all of our students to spend a semester abroad.

Individual Attention

        SRH Berlin provides you with the close, individual attention that cannot be found at larger, public institutions of higher education. Because of our small class sizes, faculty get to know each student individually and there are plenty of opportunities for students to work on projects and publications with individual faculty members.

Quality of Teaching

Our faculty members are experts in the fields of Business Administration, Intercultural Affairs, and Law. Their extensive research publications make them an excellent resource for students and students often have the chance to collaborate with them on new publications. Course materials focus on case studies from real-life business scenarios so that not only theory but also practical and experiential learning are emphasized throughout our programmes.

Business Networking Opportunities

        Our extensive network of international partner universities, our expert faculty, and our diverse student body will provide you with ample opportunities for business networking. Berlin is one of Europe’s most dynamic economic centers and offers you the possibility to network with small, entrepreneurial start-ups as well as established international companies that have their headquarters in the city. If you choose to take part in one of our Tripartite programmes, you will make contacts with faculty and businesses in major international centers of commerce and economics (such as Paris, Madrid, and Dublin). Internships and company projects also form a central cornerstone of your studies at SRH Berlin so that when you graduate you will have a solid network of students, faculty, and business contacts.

Internship and Career Services

All of our Master’s students take part in an internship during their second academic year. This serves as preparation for a professional career and allows you to use your newly acquired knowledge in an application-oriented manner. Furthermore, you will have the chance to create and implement corporate business solutions in a real-life company project. In this way, students gain insight into the challenges of entrepreneurial business and will graduate with two years of business experience on their CVs – a great way to enter the professional job market!
