Course content

This innovative, dual award programme provides the opportunity to study for a Master’s award at two European universities. You will receive an MA in Advanced International Business Management from Newcastle University and an MSc in International Business and Management from the University of Groningen, in the Netherlands.

The overall aim of the programme is to provide a pre-experience Masters qualification in business management with a strong international dimension. Attention is paid to the comparative analyses of countries, institutions, cultures and the strategic decision-making of companies operating within this environment.

The degree has been designed for individuals who aspire to a career in international business management and will practically prepare students for a range of positions in international, multinational or transnational companies. The programme will also provide participants with the expertise appropriate to a management career in the not-for-profit sector. The programme is closely related to the Advanced International Business Management and Marketing Dual Award, however, is more suitable for those who may have no previous management experience or qualifications.

The programme has a diverse international cohort and is taught in English with selected workshops delivered jointly by academics from both universities.

It covers the main aspects of business in an international context:

  • Strategic management and organization
  • Managing across cultures
  • Financial management and financial risk
  • Economics and marketing.
