Education for the higher educated

3Continent Master of Global Management (3C MGM)

Antwerp Management School

  • Description
  • Overview

This 12-month full-time master program offers recent university graduates who want to pursue a career in an international business environment (either for a local company with important business activities abroad, or for multinational companies) a state of the art insight in global management, while experiencing real-life three major global cultures and (business) societies: Europe, India and the USA.


What better to prepare young minds for a successful professional career than to offer them a global look at management? The best way to show the next generation of leaders how businesses work in different regions is by showing them up close. By letting students experience different cultures and learning about the importance of diversity, trust, cooperation and welfare, they will extract key lessons about professional do's and don'ts, as well as how to be a more balanced human being. As a result, these future leaders will discover that what is good for business, can also be good for society.
