Programme structure

The Master in International Business offers a branched path.

All admitted students will take part in the MIB Fast Track, a twelve-month, full-time program composed of three teaching periods. It delivers up to 70 ECTS CREDITS and a “1st level Specializing Master's Degree” (level 7 of the European Qualifications Framework - EQF).

The Fast Track offers:

Lectures: 12 core courses taking place from Wednesday to Friday (generally from 10 am to 1 pm and from 2 pm to 5 pm);
Business Talks: business executives are regular guests, thus ensuring the relevance and practicality of our management education. This activity is spread all over the quarter I, generally taking place on Mondays and Tuesdays from October to December.
Field Work: activity carried out in small groups, focused on projects designed and coached by partner firms. This activity is spread all over the quarter II, generally taking place on Monday and Tuesday from January to April;
Internship: it should last at least 500 hours. This activity is spread all over the quarter III, from May until the end of the internship project.
Final Exam: preparation, presentation and discussion of a Final Report based on the internship project. Students will be able to access one of three different sessions organised every year.

Classes begin in September, 2022 and run until May, 2023. Classes run from Monday to Friday, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

In order to obtain the degree you must attend at least 80% of classes and obtain a minimum of 60 ECTS.

The closing ceremony will be held between September and November 2023.

Please note that exact timetable will be provided approximately in September, 2022.


In addition to the Fast Track, the Master offers two modular configurations, outlined below:

MIB International Track, six-month full-time programme delivering an additional 30 ECTS CREDITS (allowing to earn a Master's degree from UCSC carrying up to 100 credits);
