Course summary

Overview

This industry-accredited Masters prepares you to conduct business in a rapidly transforming global context. The course is designed to provide our students with a wide-ranging learning experience, both inside and outside of the classroom.

Our cutting-edge research underpins teaching, with the intention of developing curious and creative minds, and making a positive impact in an ever-changing world. You will be able to consider the latest critical thinking including but not limited to emerging issues in international business, such as the rise of emerging market multinationals, challenges to global innovation and trade-offs in nurturing commercially sustainable international businesses.

You will be able to identify the motivations and means of servicing foreign markets, address controversial issues in international business, formulate your own international and strategic business plans and appreciate the factors that drive industry and firm performance in the global economy. In addition, you will also explore how the rise of emerging economies affects businesses and their international strategies.

The course has a wide representation of staff and students from all over the world. We have links with many international organisations, collaborative networks, and global alliances. Students have the opportunity to apply to study an additional semester abroad in a leading university in Europe or Asia.

Our strong corporate links provide opportunities for practical development, including work-based research and consultancy projects in the UK and overseas. You’ll gain hands-on, analytical and problem solving skills relevant to a wide range of careers.

Accreditation

MSc International Business is accredited by the Institute of Export (IOE), the professional membership body representing and supporting the interests of everyone involved in importing, exporting and international trade. Students are able to gain student membership of the IOE during the course, providing access to a database of networking and job opportunities.

The course is also accredited by the Association of MBAs (AMBA), who named this “a world-leading programme”. AMBA accreditation recognises the high quality levels of teaching at Leeds in line with their independent standards.

Learning and teaching

Many of our academics are experts in their fields, and their up-to-date research informs teaching on the course. We use a range of teaching methods so you can benefit from their expertise including lectures, workshops, seminars, simulations and tutorials. Company case studies, projects and business plan competitions provide an opportunity to put your learning into practice.

Independent study is also vital for this course allowing you to prepare for taught classes and sharpen your own research and critical skills.

Assessment

Assessment methods emphasise not just knowledge, but essential skills development too.

They include formal exams, business reports, group projects, simulation exercises, essays and written assignments, group and individual presentations and reflective logs. Optional modules may also use other assessment methods, depending on what you choose.

Career opportunities

Career opportunities for international business graduates are vast. Multinational organisations particularly favour employees who have the ability to work confidently across, and within, a range of different markets.

Previous graduates of this course have gone on to diverse careers in top firms worldwide, including as business analysts, country managers, product managers, trading executives, buyers, business development managers and roles in financial services. Others have sought to internationalise their own family business.

The MSc International Business also offers an excellent grounding for academic studies at PhD level.
