The Master Degree program Intercultural Communication and Business (ICB) begins during the Winter Semester 2020/2021. Here, you can intensify your focus on Anglophone business communication and take courses in a second business language while also studying business administration and commercial law. The MA Degree program offers an introductory module in Intercultural Communication. Business English courses will help to improve your language proficiency while also acquiring a better understanding of Anglophone business cultures. Courses on media and culture further your understanding of Anglophone cultures and forms of communication.

You can choose to have a focus in either Anglophone Literary, Cultural and Media Studies or in English Linguistics. You can combine this focus with a minor in another business language including French, Croatian/Serbian/Bosnian, Polish, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish, or Czech. Alternatively, you can do an internship or a praxis-oriented project instead rather than focusing on a second language. The Economics part of the degree consists of classes in business administration, economics, statistics, and business law. The course of studies runs for four semesters and consists of 120 Credit Points. The program begins during the Winter Semester in October of each year. The program further qualifies you for work in international businesses and/or cross-cultural cultural institutions.
