Über das Studium:

A multi-national Master's degree program offering a unique experience by studying over nine months in three different countries with fellow students of diverse nationalities and different cultural backgrounds. 

The TROIKA program consists of a national year at Johannes Kepler University (JKU) in Linz and an international year at all three partner universities (HSE, Higher School of Economics Nizhny Novgorod; JKU Linz; UniBG, Università degli Studi di Bergamo). Through its special design and structure, the program prepares you to pursue a career in international management. What this program offers you:

  • Russian, Italian, and Austrian business contexts. You will spend approximately three months in Russia, Italy, and Austria and local business practices. As you will work on business projects in cooperation with Austrian and Russian companies, you can gain some practical and first-hand experience.
  • Global mindset and intercultural competence. This program provides you with a unique opportunity to develop a global mindset and to strengthen your social and cultural skill sets. Cultural sensitivity training, mandatory courses in a second foreign language, and working closely with international classmates from different countries allows you to embrace diversity and cultural differences.
  • Personal development. The TROIKA program is a life-enriching experience that fosters the development of your personality. It has a lasting impact in regard to your levels of tolerance, ambiguity, openness, and flexibility - characteristics that are highly valued within the field of international management.

Master's Program Structure

The program is divided into two sections:

National Year
During the national year of the program, you study at your home university. At the JKU, you  attend courses in general management and business, research methods, and take English language classes throughout semester one and two of the program. We also strongly recommend that you begin working on your Master's thesis during the first year of the program. You can choose 6 out of 8 management subjects. You attend these subjects together with students of other Master’s programs. This enables you to make contacts and exchange ideas with other students.

International Year
Each year, approximately 10 students are selected from each university. During the international year of the program, students from all three partner universities will spend three months in Russia, Austria, and Italy, and study together in one class. The program starts in Russia in October, moves on to Austria, and then concludes in Italy in June. Local faculty members from each of the three universities teach the program courses.

During the international year, the joint study program includes courses in international finance, economic and business context, cultural awareness, global governance and advanced management competences, as well as language classes in Russian, Italian, or German. Aside from theoretical input, you will also have an opportunity to work at companies on real-world business projects within culturally diverse groups during your stay in Bergamo. This has become one of the highlights of the program.

Successful Completion of the Joint Master's Degree Program
After the joint study period, you return home to take final examinations and complete a thesis as required by your home university. Your home university will award the degree. The diploma indicates that the program was offered in cooperation by all three universities. At the JKU, you will be conferred with the title Master of Science (MSc) in Global Business.
