Course Overview

Accredited by the Institute of Export, this MSc delivers a thorough understanding of the management and operational requirements necessary to trade successfully in international markets. The programme is heavily focused on the application of theory into practice and how the skills developed throughout your studies will be used to best advantage in a professional environment. You will learn how international companies operate, and will develop the skills to enable your involvement in the whole process from initial engagement with a new market, right through to the delivery of a product or service; including leading change, and improving operational and supply chain processes.

Teaching

This course has two components – a taught component and a research component (dissertation) each accounting for 50% of your time and effort.

For the taught component, we blend lectures with seminars, syndicate exercises, simulations, and case studies. Each module is delivered intensively over one full week or two half weeks, and classes are deliberately kept small to encourage interaction. Larger scale lectures are delivered for some modules and are backed up by seminar and syndicate activities.

Our module leaders have extensive industry experience. Guest speakers from industry also contribute regularly, bringing real-world insight into your learning experience.

Assessment

At the end of each module, you will be given a Post Module Assignment (PMA) based on the learning objectives of that module. This is a piece of assessed written work which should take around 60 hours to complete. Most modules also have some in-module assessed work.

Careers

Graduates from WMG have gone on to work for a variety of employers including: Airbus, Amazon, AstraZeneca, Barclays, Bloomberg, Ernst & Young, GSK, Jaguar Land Rover and Siemens. The International Trade programme will prepare you to take on a senior role within a company that trades internationally. The breadth of the programme enables students to gain a clear overview of all the elements of international trade whilst giving the opportunity to also focus or specialise on a particular aspect of interest to the individual.
