Course content

International businesses have a growing need for senior personnel with high quality management skills and specialist regional knowledge.

As the regions of Asia and of Africa take roles as leading and emerging economies in the world, this MSc International Business Administration responds to this need.

You will study the interplay between global and local factors that influence management decisions in business. Additionally, students will also become acquainted with the main issues and methods in Corporate Finance, Risk Management, Banking, and Financial Econometrics. The programme will present Finance as a scientific discipline with a rigorous methodology, but at the same time will describe the way financial markets and institutions actually work in a variety of contexts.

Our teaching offers you exceptional insights into financial institutions and markets in London and other major cities in the world. In addition, we offer specialist knowledge of financial and management systems in the emerging markets of Africa, Asia and the Middle East – something that will set you apart from graduates of other universities that normally focus on the analysis of Europe and the Americas. You will develop an excellent understanding of key issues shaping international business strategy in a global financial environment.
