Course content

The Masters in International Business Management is a new programme replacing our highly successful Masters in Management. The demands of the international economy, and the increasing globalisation of business and management practice, has led us to re-launch our programme with a new and exciting international focus and curriculum.

Drawing on established business disciplines we have produced a series of creative and challenging modules that reflect current themes and debates in international business and management. In addition we are able to offer an established programme in professional development, with mentoring, support, and a vibrant student community creating a stimulating and progressive learning environment.

Students will consider the following modules:

  • Leadership, Team Building and Communication
  • International Management: People and Operation
  • Organizations and Culture in a Global Context
  • Creativity, Marketing and Enterprise
  • Globalisation and Contemporary Issues in Business and Management
  • Global Systems and Strategy
  • Professional Development and Practice in Business and Management
  • Business Analysis
