Our flagship MSc International Business (Dual Award) degree is a truly exceptional opportunity to gain two Master-level qualifications in just 15 months, giving you a clear competitive advantage. Featuring a highly valuable international internship, as well as the opportunity to study in the UK and abroad, and an in-depth academic project, this is a career-defining degree that will change the way you see the world!

You will begin by exploring the core areas of International Business here at Nottingham Business School. You will then build on this by studying for a term at one of our acclaimed partner institutions:

  • ISCTE in Lisbon, Portugal;
