Course content

The MSc in International Management is designed to give you the knowledge and expertise needed for a successful career in management worldwide. With a strong focus on the changing nature of management in a globalised world this MSc provides a strong basis for a variety of careers or for further study at PhD level.

Central to the course’s objectives is the idea of the international manager who combines specialist knowledge of the role of management and management functions with a strong understanding of the social, political and ethical context of business. Such understanding is essential in a globalised world where national differences persist and management of cross-cultural environments is demanded. The course aims to produce graduates who are capable of contributing to sustainable and ethically informed business success, in a highly competitive global environment.

This programme enables you to acquire specialist knowledge of international management whilst placing that subject knowledge within a wider organisational and contextual framework.

It will develop your ability to understand, design, conduct and evaluate empirical research through independent work leading to the submission of the International Management Project.

You will develop the ability to recognise and address ethical dilemmas and corporate social responsibility issues in international management, and to apply analytical and technical skills to resolving them.
