Course content

No company today can ignore the impact of globalisation. However, many firms are struggling to come to terms with the implications of this new reality.

Previously satisfactory business tools and techniques are now outdated and inappropriate. The fast pace of change and global shift has led to new market and product opportunities requiring novel approaches to strategy, organisation, operations and finance.

The International Business MSc can offer you an in-depth understanding of the changing organisational environment. This specialist course has been designed for those who wish to increase their knowledge and understanding of business and management in an international context.

The International Business MSc aims to provide you with the opportunity to:

  • gain an understanding of the international business environment and the strategies that organisations may use to compete in such settings;
  • develop a strategic business outlook;
  • enhance your business and personal skills;
  • work with other students and staff from a range of nationalities and backgrounds;
  • prepare you to become an international manager by developing your ability to think strategically;
  • communicate effectively in a range of business settings;
  • understand how to implement complex business projects, ranging from new product development, managing global supply chain and logistical activities to mergers and acquisitions;
  • use business simulations and software to gain practical insights into business problems and IT solutions;
  • enhance your ability to apply key skills to problems and contemporary issues within the global business context.

You will also have the opportunity to apply for a place on the internship programme.
