Jointly run by the University of Savoie (France), the University of Trento (Italy), the University of Kassel (Germany) and the University of León (Spain), the European Master in Business Studies (EMBS) is a two-year full-time Master’s degree in Managementofficially integrated in the new European Bologna system of higher education. EMBS has been developed in order to offer to European as well as to non-European students a unique opportunity of learning how to do business in Europe effectively.
Apart from studying fundamentals of Management and Sales & Marketing on a European scale, students will learn “on site” the multicultural differences by working in groups of different nationalities and by spending one semester in each University of the consortium. The EMBS is composed of four semesters in four different European countries (Trento/Italy, Annecy/France, Kassel/Germany and León/Spain), as explained in the following scheme:
