Course summary

Overview

On this Masters programme, you will examine the strategies multinational firms use to compete in a global economy. Also, the development and policy challenges they create, from the perspectives of both developing and developed countries.

Through this MSc degree you will learn how firms are organised internally. Additionally, you will take a holistic view of the international business environment, regarding the competitiveness of firms and industries. You will therefore be able to connect the 'micro' firm view with the 'macro' view of countries and regions.

How we assess you

You will learn and be assessed through a wide variety of teaching methods depending on your chosen postgraduate course. These include online materials, guest lectures, group assignments, case studies, field visits, dealing room simulations, presentations, applied projects, consultancy work and examinations. On average examinations of core modules form between 15 - 50% of the assessed work. The remaining comes from coursework, including a written dissertation or project depending on your chosen programme.

Continuing your career

After Graduating from your Masters you may follow a variety of career paths. These include roles in business development or general management, with a range of employers including large corporations or multinational enterprises or government agencies. Our alumni tell us that this programme gives them the key skills and knowledge required to build a career in multinational enterprises or government agencies.
