MSc International Business Management


The world’s economy is increasingly global. As a result, demand continues to grow for individuals who understand the global context of business: from logistics and cross-border investments to the cultural and ethical issues in the practice of international business. These skills are increasingly valued by employers who are faced with the challenges of operating globally and achieving cohesion in increasingly diverse workforces.

Course Details

The course is relevant to those with or without a business degree, although a minimum of a 2:2 classification is required and will prepare you for managerial roles across this emerging global economy.

The course will build upon your existing capabilities from your first discipline and will develop your conceptual and theoretical understanding of business and management issues, problems and opportunities.

As well as developing your research and reflection skills at postgraduate level, you will be able to link theory and practice throughout each module which include a variety of study methods such as case studies, business simulations, the completion of an applied research project related to real ‘live’ business issues and in some cases by means of a work based learning component.

Do I require a formal management qualification?

Experience or qualifications in management are neither expected nor required. If you have experience as a manager, you may wish to consider our MBA programme.

How I will be assessed?

The course has a mixture of assessment involving essays, research papers, case studies, portfolios, oral presentations, examinations and a final dissertation.
