Frequenty Asked Questions

What makes the Global Business Master's Degree Programs so unique?

The programs' international focus is a unique feature. These Master's degree programs in Global Business are taught exclusively in English and provide students with an opportunity to spend six months abroad, living in two different countries and experiencing different cultures. The joint Master's degree program in Global Business aims to prepare students to pursue careers at international companies. This special graduate degree program not only challenges students to travel the world and learn to work together as part of an international team, but also appreciate different cultures as well as reflect critically and conscientiously on their own country.

The program has been designed to raise each student's level of awareness, tolerance, understanding and flexibility - traits that every manager in our global world needs today.

What are the admission requirements for the Master's degree program in Global Business at Johannes Kepler University in Linz?

To qualify for admission to the JKU's Master's degree program in Global Business, students must have successfully completed a Bachelor’s degree in Business Administration or hold a comparable degree. (Note: degrees awarded by universities other than the JKU will be subject to an evaluation by the Admissions Office to clarify whether or not they meet the required standards.

   • Interview in English

When do I find out if I meet the admission requirements?

After submitting a complete application, we will send you an e-mail notifying you that we have received your application.
