International iMBA UPCT

The International iMBA UPCT is a Master Degree that allows students acquiring the knowledge, skills and abilities necessary to engage in managerial tasks of an organization in an efficient and competitive way, either in small or large companies, corporates or a government institutions. The iMBA UPCT includes courses on Management, Finance, Accounting, Human Resources, Marketing, Statistics, Law, Business Economics, and so on.

Our iMBA degree is available with an "optional" industry placement.

In general, internship is an optional extension of the iMBA degree, but not necessary for getting the Academic iMBA title.
