Course content

This Master's degree in international management will prepare you to pursue a career in management with multinational companies or companies engaged in international business, or to progress to one of Birkbeck's research degree programmes.

The programme examines the essentials of cross-border management theory and practice, and the core principles and practice of business and organisations in an international context. You will gain a broad knowledge and expertise in the design and implementation of strategy at different levels of the corporate organisation, particularly in an international dimension.

A range of option modules in international business and management as well as specific functional areas allow you to tailor your studies to your own personal or career requirements. You will then use your critical analysis and independent judgement skills to write a dissertation framing solutions to complex managerial problems in international business organisations.

The programme also allows you to develop personal and generic skills that are transferable to a wide range of research, teaching and work situations, including the skills of self-discipline, reflection, analysis, communication, leadership and lifelong learning.
