GGSB MIB at De Broc – Programme Structure

The MIB (Master in International Business) programme is a two-year course designed and awarded by Grenoble Graduate School of Business (GGSB). GGSB is one of Europe's most prestigious business schools, triple accredited by AMBA , EQUIS and AACSB and ranked by the Economist and Business Week.

The programme is a comprehensive examination of general management topics, studied from an international perspective. There is a strong focus on knowledge and skills required by managers in both private and public sectors internationally. Core management techniques are analysed and approached from different perspectives to understand their application on a global scale.

Foreign language skills are essential to succeed in business today, and this programme offers the opportunity to learn an additional language. The programme requires a full time commitment from students during the first year of study, but is followed by a period of up to one year to complete the Final Management Project. Students can work on this project from anywhere in the world, whether taking on an internship, full time employment, or utilizing the full time available to complete the project.

The MIB (Master in International Business), previously offered at London School of Business and Finance (LSBF), is now being delivered at De Broc School of Business. This school is the business faculty of The University of Law, which is part of the Global University Systems (GUS) group alongside LSBF.

This module will examine the basic concepts and principles of marketing and familiarise students with the role of marketing within an organisation. Students will learn how knowledge of customer needs and use of effective marketing generates profits. These concepts will then be applied from an international perspective and provide students with an understanding of the challenges that arise within international marketing environments and how to adjust basic marketing principles to remain relevant.

Accounting within any market is affected by international developments, and this module offers an introduction to both accounting and financial reporting in a multinational environment. Students' knowledge of accounting will be expanded with an international approach to the factors that influence the development of accounting and reporting around the world. This module prepares graduates for effectively reading and interpreting financial statements.

Finance and Economics

The aim of this module is to familiarise students with the fundamentals of both micro and macro-economics and their relation to international trade. One of the most important decisions faced by managers of corporations is the selection and financing of investment projects. Students will be introduced to the techniques used to evaluate investments from an international perspective.

IT and Web Applications

The development, implementation, and management of Information Systems within an organisation is critical to the success of business objectives. Students will be introduced to the issues that arise with the globalisation of trade and the growing complexities of internet-based systems, learning to address the challenges of constantly changing information needs.

Strategy and Operations

Students will learn how to understand the symptoms and deal with the root causes of a problem. The development of a framework for decision-making will be facilitated through discussions of strategic planning, management, and analysis. The module helps students practise presenting and defending solutions and executing strategic decision in uncertain situations.

International Business

This module will help students become familiar with the legal aspects of international business and to apply legal concepts to genuine business situations. Students will study the impact of regulations on international business and how strategies are developed and how foreign legislation is considered.

International Management

Globalisation is a growing feature of modern business and managers of both international and domestic organisations must have the knowledge and skills necessary to integrate themselves within the international market. Although multinationals have greater opportunity in terms of diversification and financing sources, there are also greater risks involved such as exchange rate fluctuations and political instability.

Foreign Language

Students are required to learn the basics of French and to use the language in accordance with business. If students already speak French, alternative languages are offered.

The MIB (Master in International Business) programme delivers a comprehensive study of the fundamental concepts in international business, preparing those with no prior experience for career success with major international businesses.
