Course content

Our course focuses on issues critical to all organisations within the global economy. The global economic slowdown, following problems in the sub-prime mortgage market in the USA, has made it all too clear how interconnected the global economy really is. This course emphasises the importance of multidisciplinary perspectives to the understanding of international business activity, including economic, political, legal, socio-cultural and technological perspectives. It is designed for those aiming at a career in international business and management.

There are opportunities to take a double degree, either in Groningen in the Netherlands (MBA International Management) subject to meeting their (in addition to our) entry requirements with regard to qualifying work experience, or to go to Olten in Switzerland (MBA International Management). In both cases, you will be expected to spend the diploma semester in either Groningen or Basel. If you opt to study at one of our partner institutions, you will follow equivalent modules to those you would have studied had you stayed in Cambridge.

Information for international students

Those applicants for whom English is not a first language will be expected to demonstrate a certified level of proficiency - at least ILETS 6.5.
