The degree programme in International Business, or DIB as we call it, is intended for both Finnish and international students wishing to seek interesting career paths in innovative international business, sales and marketing, management or entrepreneurship.
The programme emphasizes interaction within a multicultural learning environment and encourages initiative, interaction and innovation. The programme develops the students’ skills to assess the differences between national, organizational and occupational cultures. You learn by participating lectures and discussions, doing group works, keeping presentations, taking part in different projects and case studies and visiting companies. Many of the courses are delivered in co-operation with visiting lecturers from foreign partner universities. The close co-operation with work life makes it possible for students to put theory into practice. Studies include practical training, which enables students to network with work life in Finland and abroad.
The programme focuses on developing various skills required in the field of innovative international business. You will learn to draft international sales and marketing plans and how to implement, co-ordinate and control them. You will learn how to create, develop and maintain profitable customer relationships.
The programme also includes international marketing management, which enables you to conduct analyses, international market surveys and formulate market-entry strategies. Studies also include courses in IT, HRM, management and accounting. The graduates adopt an approach that is based on demand and user-oriented innovativeness, which make it possible for them to work in project duties with innovative, initiative-oriented and developmental approach.
Learn by Doing
A big part of international business studies are real life-projects that students conduct to local and
international companies as part of their course studies. Go-to market plans for companies such as Dorent Ltd, Oikian Ltd or Uros Ltd have allowed students to show their skills to company
representatives. To enhance their knowledge of organizing an international conference our students have actively helped local company Printocent in organizing international seminars.
At Oamk you will be able to use your skills and knowledge already during the studies.
The programme allows versatile career opportunities both in Finland and internationally. Usually the graduates make their careers in the areas such as international sales and marketing, customer services, sales and office assignments, personnel administration, finance, marketing design and implementation or international trade import and export.

• Account Manager
