Course content

What unique challenges do managers face in different cultures? How is the role of management changing?

Our MSc International Management is perfect if you do not have a first degree in business, but wish to pursue a career in an international organisation, or gain a greater understanding of the increasingly global context in which businesses operate.

You focus on the changing role of global management and organisation in the 21st century, including how globalisation and international business activities affect management practices across cultures and countries.

We explore debates around corporate ethics, sustainability, governance and social responsibility. By exploring management issues in both established and developing markets, we do not just prepare you for a successful career in business; we help you shape the kind of world you want to live in.

You explore topics including:

  • international business and the global political economy
  • cross-cultural management
  • corporate ethics and responsibility
  • business strategy
