Sustainable economic growth and the creation of welfare for individuals and whole societies worldwide calls for professionals who know how to manage the businesses and processes embedded in the most vibrant locations such as the new economies (e.g. BRIC countries – Brazil, Russia, India and China) and other countries perceived as emerging markets located in Eastern Europe, Latin America, Asia and Africa. Emerging markets are increasingly used as a place for business of growing number of enterprises. International corporations open new subsidiaries there to reach new sales markets. Those enterprises need well educated people to manage their businesses in those markets. There is a lack of educational offer on the market which would focus on these specific regions. IMEM covers this gap and offers a multi-disciplinary approach to study both economic and business environments of these countries as well as theory and practice in the field of management of different size and type of organizations.
