The In­sti­tute for In­ter­na­tional Busi­ness (IIB) is one of the largest groups with fo­cus on In­ter­na­tional Busi­ness and Man­age­ment in Europe, with a strong fo­cus on de­liv­er­ing highest qual­ity out­put in our re­search-, teach­ing-, busi­ness-trans­fer­-activ­it­ies.

IIB's re­search fo­cus cov­ers a wide range of fa­cets and top­ics rel­ev­ant in the field of in­ter­na­tional busi­ness, as for example the role of re­gional headquar­ters, in­ter­na­tion­al­iz­a­tion pro­cesses in Cent­ral and Eastern Europe, in­ter­na­tional fin­ance in for­eign trade, headquarter con­tri­bu­tions or people-re­lated re­search within and across cul­tures. Pub­lic­a­tions in in­ter­na­tional top-tier journ­als and nu­mer­ous re­search awards to our fac­ulty cer­tify the high re­search qual­ity the in­sti­tute is con­stantly striv­ing for. Our fac­ulty also re­ceived ma­jor awards for teach­ing, in­clud­ing best course and/or lec­turer wards in the CEMS Al­li­ance and ma­jor MBA pro­grams.  In ad­di­tion, a mul­ti­tude of pro­jects and co-­op­er­a­tions with com­pan­ies proof the trust and sup­port IIB en­joys from prac­ti­tion­ers and man­agers.

IIB's fac­ulty and staff are all in­ter­na­tion­ally ex­per­i­enced and well con­nec­ted to mul­tina­tional com­pan­ies and SMEs as well as within the global scien­ti­fic com­munity. Its in­ter­na­tional net­work not only boosts IIB's pos­i­tion in the global ar­ena but also at­tracts highly re­cog­nized guests and re­search­ers from all over the world.

From a stu­dent's per­spect­ive, IIB is among WU's most at­tract­ive in­ter­na­tion­ally ori­ented in­sti­tutes with teach­ing on Bach­elor, Mas­ter, and PhD level. Be­sides its own Bach­elor pro­grams in in­ter­na­tional busi­ness, IIB is sig­ni­fic­antly con­trib­ut­ing to the con­tinu­ing suc­cess of the CEMS Mas­ter in In­ter­na­tional Man­age­ment. IIB's stu­dents be­ne­fit con­sid­er­ably from its con­nec­ted­ness to com­pan­ies and re­search­ers world­wide as well as from its in­ter­na­tional ori­ent­a­tion and ex­pert­ise.
