Course summary

Course Overview

Managing international growth is a key challenge for firms, whether for smaller entrepreneurial ventures or for larger well-established corporations. Managers in these firms need to deal with complex issues related to foreign direct investment and diverse regulatory environments, strategic positioning in different markets, the creation and management of organizational structures that support international business, and taking leadership for activities across national boundaries.

Endorsed by Ernst & Young (EY), the MSc International Business & Strategy programme is designed to equip graduates with the key capabilities required to operate in multi-national firms. On the programme you will develop vital skills and capabilities necessary to manage international growth. This involves organic growth via the smart positioning of products and services in diverse markets, through to the management of mergers and acquisitions.

Throughout the programme you will work intensively with fellow students and with our internationally-renowned experts who deliver the programme. Alongside the core modules, you will participate in a professional development programme with our dedicated careers partners.

MSc IB&S students benefit from the combination of cutting-edge management education with the strong focus on application to real life issues. Graduates from the MSc IB&S work all over the world in multi-nationals such as Apple, Coca-Cola, GSK, Hewlett Packard, Microsoft and Unilever as well as the top global professional service firms such as Accenture, Bank of America Merrill Lynch, Deloitte, EY, IBM, KPMG and PWC.

Assessment Methods

The International Business & Strategy degree is made up of a total of 180 credits. The Dissertation module represents the largest single component, and is worth 50 credits. Most modules use more than one type of assessment including formal exams, individual coursework essays and assignments, group-based reports and case study analysis.
