Course summary

The MSc International Business seeks to meet the buoyant labour market demand for more postgraduates in the field. This programme is distinctive in the way it presents the multidisciplinary context of international business and promotes a connection with cognate fields such as management, business, economics and organisation studies.

Compulsory modules provide core training in principles of international business and management and research methods, and a range of option modules allow you to focus on specific areas according to your personal interests or career requirements, including economics and finance, marketing, employment relations and human resource management, business ethics, globalisation and development. You may further tailor the programme to your needs by writing a dissertation on a topic that particularly interests you, using research-based skills which are emphasised throughout the programme.

On completing the programme you will have the knowledge, skills and competencies to analyse critical issues in international business with qualitative and quantitative methods, and to design and implement international business strategy and policy development. This Master's degree is particularly relevant if you are, or would like to be, a manager with responsibility for international business and policy affairs in a private or public sector organisation.

TEACHING

Teaching may include formal lectures, seminars, and practical classes and tutorials. Formal lectures are used in most degree programmes to give an overview of a particular field of study. They aim to provide the stimulus and the starting point for deeper exploration of the subject during your own personal reading. Seminars give you the chance to explore a specific aspect of your subject in depth and to discuss and exchange ideas with fellow students. They typically require preparatory study.

CAREERS AND EMPLOYABILITY

Graduates can pursue careers in business or management in a domestic or international context or in any functional area (accounting, finance, marketing or human resources management) in the public or private sector. Possible professions include management consultant, accounting or finance executive, corporate investment banker, human resource officer, or marketing executive. This degree can also be useful in working for a multinational company as a logistics and distribution officer or a systems analyst.
