Course description

Are you aiming to study internationally, preferably in English? Do you aspire to work in an international company, a non-governmental organization, or a non-profit? As a manager or project leader, you need a deep understanding of global economic contexts, intercultural competence, and international experience. The Tricontinental Master in Global Studies (TRIM) equips you with these skills over four semesters, preparing you for a career in an international setting. One unique aspect of this program is the cohort of international students who move together to different locations each semester. The journey begins in Karlsruhe for the first semester, continues in Taichung, Taiwan for the second, and then moves to Monterrey, Mexico for the third. In the fourth semester, you will write your master's thesis, ideally in collaboration with an internationally active company or organization, and you can choose your location for this final phase. This program covers a range of study subjects designed to provide comprehensive knowledge and practical experience. By the end of the four semesters, you will be well-prepared to navigate and lead in a global environment.
