Competence Center: International Management & Diplomacy

The competence group on IMD focusses on teaching and training in the domains of international management and some relevant sideshows towards diplomacy and development studies. Though the faculty of applied economics constitutes our main action field, the IMD staff also teaches at Itmma, AMS and other faculties at the UA. With International Management is understood applied international economics and more practical implementation in business models. Some courses are frequently inviting foreign teachers, as our staff perform regular visiting teaching abroad.   

The research output is mostly linked to the home teaching, the lectures in international exchange programs, conferences and staff mobility. Every year, at least one book of readings is produced, such as "essay in IMD" (Wereldwijd Bekeken) and the "Millenium Decennium" on structural changes in global trade patterns. Last decade, the next topics were frequently investigated in publications or conference papers:
•European economic integration;
•applied international economics (e.g. country studies and business environment))
•international management (including logistics and diplomacy)
•globalisation and labour economics
•development economics (including project appraisal)
