Course summary

The Masters in International Business (MLitt) prepares students for cross-cultural work, providing the knowledge and critical understanding of key business and management practices while considering issues of responsibility in organisations on a global scale.

Course information

The Masters in International Business is a one-year taught programme run by the School of Management.

Highlights

  • The programme offers an in-depth analysis and appreciation of changes in the global business and organisational environment and introduces new approaches to management thinking.
  • The course enables students to embark on a career within a multi-national or global organisation with a firm grounding in the principles of strategic management.
  • Students have the opportunity to participate in the Masters Extra (MX) Programme, which includes guest lectures from eminent academics and business executives, specific sessions to enhance career development opportunities and a range of corporate visits.

Teaching format

Teaching is delivered through a mixture of core and optional modules using a range of delivery methods including lectures, small group tutorials, workshops and seminars. The average lecture size is 60 students, however, in some cases there will be seminars of 15 to 18 students or larger lectures with approximately 100 students, which would normally be augmented by small group tutorials made up of International Business students.

Assessment comprises a combination of coursework and examinations. Over the summer months, students undertake a research project culminating in a written dissertation of 15,000 words. You will attend a weekly series of lectures and workshops focusing on research methods and other topics to help prepare you for the dissertation.
