Course content

  • Rated as one of the world's best in the 2018 Financial Times Masters in Management rankings
  • International student cohort, with students from over 30 different countries (2017/18)
  • European study option available at one of four prestigious partner universities
  • Dedicated careers coach for International Management students

Our MSc International Management is perfect if you have less than three years’ work experience and are looking to further develop your business knowledge, and launch a dynamic, international business career.

Whilst it is ideal for those who have recently graduated with a business degree, it is also particularly relevant for those from non-business backgrounds looking to add incisive business education to their undergraduate degree.

The core modules on the programme will equip you with the skills, knowledge and insight to help you achieve a successful and sustainable career in business and management anywhere in the world. There is also a wide variety of modules for you to choose from to align your degree to your career aspirations.

Our cohort continues to be truly multinational and you will therefore learn first-hand how different cultures approach the same challenges with different perspectives. This international outlook will enhance your learning experience and help you build a network of peers from across the globe.

The programme is available in an intensive 9-month format or you can study over 12-months. If you choose the 12-month programme you can add an extra dimension to your MSc by spending Term 2 at one of our four partner universities:

  • University of Mannheim, Germany
  • Bocconi University, Italy
  • Copenhagen Business School, Denmark
  • HEC Lausanne, Switzerland

Whatever option you choose, we will ensure you will leave with a new found confidence and expertise in international management to enable you to build a successful and sustainable career for the future.
