Course content

International business and entrepreneurial expansion is a desirable business strategy as it opens more avenues for revenue, but careful consideration must be paid to differences in how countries and cultural nuance impact business decisions.

Our MSc International Business and Entrepreneurship explores the theoretical and practical aspects of starting, growing and developing businesses across international borders. You examine different types of international business activity and the theories and innovative approaches to new business creation in different cultural and economic contexts. You do not need to have previously studied business to apply for this course.

You explore topics including:

  • international expansion models
  • applying economic theory to business management
  • international trade theories and practices
  • international business environments
  • economic, sociological, psychological and managerial theories of entrepreneurship
  • how to develop an international business plan

This course develops your practical business skills and theoretical knowledge, so you’re best prepared to launch your own venture, or apply entrepreneurship in an existing company.

This course is delivered by Essex Business School at our Southend Campus. Students and staff come to us from all over the world, creating a classroom experience rich in diversity and working together to build a global understanding. Essex is also a place with entrepreneurial spirit; we have more start-up businesses than any other county in the UK. Together this entrepreneurial spirit and global community make for the perfect place to study entrepreneurship and international business.

Your course benefits from current research by the Strategy, Operations and Entrepreneurship group and focuses on answering the question: “How can organisations and entrepreneurs increase their benefits to society and minimise their environmental impact.” A Masters from Essex Business School can give you a solid foundation on which to build your career in international business and entrepreneurship.
