Find all the important information you need about your future degrees.

The six accredited partner universities of the IBSA program offer MBA or master’s degrees in various specializations. Thus, every student can expect to find the perfect match for their needs and goals. On successful completion of the course program, students will obtain dual master’s degrees; one will be awarded by the university where you completed the core modules (first semester), the other by the university where you studied your chosen specialization (second semester) and finished your master’s thesis (third semester).The key expectation of our students in this international, dual degree program is that you must pass every section of the one-year program (i.e., you must pass all of your classes in the core modules and the specialization area as well as fully complete the thesis project); we cannot offer just one degree at the end of the academic year.
