Course content

Our MSc International Management programme is designed to provide you with the specialist knowledge and skills required for managing successfully in an international organisation and for working effectively across different national contexts.

The programme will help you develop an in-depth understanding of cross-cultural challenges of international collaboration and leadership, and to analyse the critical success factors of firms operating in an international business environment.

You will gain deep insights into current research and practice, taught by highly ranked international scholars and guest speakers from industry. Through the opportunities of an international exchange or an international virtual team exercise, you will have the chance to develop your own intercultural experience and to apply your newly acquired knowledge in real-life situations.
