As today's marketplace evolves and becomes increasingly complex, many employers are choosing to balance their need to retain good employees with their need to fill managerial positions with candidates possessing advanced-level knowledge and skills.

Whether you're a real estate agent, an emergency room doctor, an engineer or an editor for your local newspaper, a graduate business degree can prepare you to move into a managerial position within your field.

Is your current career path a less than perfect fit for your aptitudes and interests? If so, a master program can give you the opportunity to explore your options and provide you with the training you need to change your career entirely.


The goal of this master program at International Burch University (IBU) is to provide with all-embracing managerial education for the leaders/managers of companies who are supposed to have viable skills in rapidly changing business environments. Today's decision-makers, problem- solvers have to cope with problems, which include social and behavioral attributes, through a holistic approach to management. However, the major mode of thinking in the business world is limited to the philosophy that produces simple solutions to simple problems. Thus, there is a need to be aware of the fact that the different methods and techniques produce only partial solutions to the organizational concerns. Managers of the 21st century should be equipped with "Creative Holism Skill" in which they can deal with various managerial problems with different methodologies simultaneously.

The master program at International Burch University reflects the above philosophy in its courses. It is committed to the all dimensions of management and therefore can be entitled as a general master program. It offers courses from management, organization, accounting, finance, and marketing. In this way, it gives an opportunity for people who expect having a career in general management field.
