Deusto University’s EIBM: Among the top 3 master’s in Spain for international career expansion

In today’s globalized world, businesses require leaders who can navigate multicultural and interconnected economies. Deusto University’s EIBM has been recognized by Forbes Spain among the top three best master’s programs in Spain to do just that: equipping graduates with the skills and knowledge they need to navigate international markets and succeed in a multicultural and multilingual environment.

In short

An international perspective: 3 languages, 3 cities, 3 universities

They say that good things come in threes, and when it comes to finding a business management master’s degree with an international perspective, one program sure nailed it.

Deusto University’s EIBM is the only trilingual master’s in Europe, offering courses that are taught by native teachers in three different languages (Spanish, French, and English). That’s because students study in three different European cities: Bilbao in Spain, Nantes in France, and Bradford in the UK. That immersion is a great aid in speeding up your learning of the local language in each country.

This is a great opportunity for those who find learning languages smooth sailing. Students must be fluent in English and have at least an A2 level in either French or Spanish. The master’s includes language classes, which will help you strengthen your skills.

Lastly, not only will you incorporate three different languages and three different cities into your learning experience, but you will also obtain a joint degree from three different prestigious business schools: Deusto University, Audencia Business School, and the University of Bradford. 

The multilingual, multicultural, and international richness blended into this program is what makes Deusto University’s EIBM such a stand-out master’s degree when it comes to supercharging your international career

A rich multicultural environment that fosters an international vision

The Master’s in European and International Business Management has been recognized as one of Spain’s best by Forbes Spain and Financial Times. The high ranking comes from graduates’ placement rates and career progression, an international focus, and the quality of the curriculum.

But perhaps, the most valuable aspect of the program is the diverse community it fosters. At least, that’s what most of their students consistently highlight. With students from all over the world (60% international participants), the program provides a rich multicultural environment that prepares graduates to work effectively in international and global organizations. 

“What I like about this master’s, really, is its multicultural environment, where we can meet people from different cultures, and I have the chance to travel.” Shares Qin Linn, a Chinese student in the EIBM. (00:50)

At EIBM, you will share classes with people of multiple and very diverse nationalities, creating lifelong connections with your classmates. Those friendships become highly valuable international networks that have no borders and extend far beyond the program’s duration.

Another EIBM student, Khalil Boucif from Algeria, also highlights the socio-cultural benefits of the program. “The truth is that the first few days were wonderful. I didn’t know many people, but the friendships formed quickly and spontaneously. We went out a lot together, we explored the city, we went for dinner, and everything was great. Bilbao and the people here are very welcoming, the food is very good, and truly, there is no better place to party,” he tells us. (01:02)

Experiential learning for a well-rounded global perspective

One of the core strengths of the EIBM program is its practical and participatory methodology. They follow the Training Model of the University of Deusto (MFUD), which places great emphasis on experiential learning. Students have the chance to spend three to six months in a full-time internship at organizations with an international focus.

This provides them with valuable hands-on experience in diverse business environments, offering a unique blend of theoretical and practical learning experiences. Students can expect real company case studies, simulations and role-playing, project-based learning, and visits to companies. 

Additionally, the program’s faculty includes both academic and industry experts, providing students with a well-rounded perspective on the challenges and opportunities of global business. 

Figures speak louder than we do

When evaluating the success of a master’s degree, hard numbers are a great indicator of the program’s effectiveness.  High placement rates, impressive starting salaries, and student satisfaction tell how well a school prepares its students for their careers. 

So if you want to supplement your studies with a master’s in international business management, consider these impressive figures: 

  • 91% employability rate in EIBM’s latest promotion;
  • 60% international students, from 10 different nationalities; and
  • Great satisfaction from the participants (8.95/10).

After all, the success of a master’s program is ultimately determined by the achievements of its graduates. Strong numbers such as these speak volumes about the quality of education it provides. 

Who is Deusto University’s EIBM ideal for?

Deusto University’s EIBM program is ideal for individuals with an international calling and who want to move into business management. The program is best suited for those who have a strong interest in developing the knowledge, skills, and competencies necessary to excel in a global business environment. 

It is effective in helping its graduates gain a deep understanding of the complexities and challenges of doing business and a globalized world while equipping them with the skills and knowledge needed to navigate it successfully.

This also makes them highly attractive candidates for internationally driven organizations or consulting firms that operate in a global context and seek new professional talent. 

Overall, Deusto University’s Master’s in European and International Business Management stands out as one of the best in the world for its comprehensive curriculum, hands-on learning experiences, and strong emphasis on multiculturalism.
