Course content

This master’s programme is rooted in two academic domains, International Business and Strategy. It will suit graduates from any discipline who wish to specialise and critically engage in these subjects. Students will learn to unpack world challenges in new ways, creating understanding of the complexities of internationalisation, current strategic thinking and sustainability challenges in business and society.

The programme will equip students with a competitive advantage in the graduate jobs market by giving them the tools to deal with the new ‘mega-forces’ of globalisation driven by technological advancement, climate change, global health crises and geopolitical events.

This MSc draws on cutting edge research by leading academics who will guide students to explore the Global Challenges facing international businesses and society, such as global warming, increasing migration flows, food insecurity, poverty, and greater competition for increasingly scarce resources. Students will gain the contextual, historical, and political perspectives by experts in these areas to enable them to think critically and solve problems practically in the workplace.

This programme will help students to:

  • Become experts in strategic management with the ability to respond to global challenges
  • Prepare for a career in international and multinational companies, NGOs and SMEs with an international outlook
  • Focus on sustainability; specialising in either Marketing, Human Resources Management or Operations Management

Graduates from this programme will benefit from studying at a top 10 UK university (QS 2022), ranked 16th in the UK for Business and Management (Complete University Guide 2021).

Sustainability is a priority for Bristol, which was the first UK city to attain European Green Capital status in 2015. The University of Bristol was the first in the UK to declare a Climate Emergency and has sustainability at the core of its strategy.
