Course content

At the University of Hertfordshire, we’ve created an innovative Master’s in international business, designed to help you build a strong understanding of the way organisations operate globally and help you develop the skills for a hugely rewarding career.

You can now combine this internationally focussed Master's with a year long placement in industry. An attainment of 60% is required from students if they wish to undertake a placement during the course.

Based just 20 minutes from one of the world’s most dynamic global cities, the Hertfordshire campus is a vibrant, supportive study environment, where you’ll learn from leading industry experts and acclaimed academics, developing a detailed understanding of global practices and trends.

You’ll explore international business from a number of perspectives, including economics, finance, strategy, supply chain, management, marketing across cultures and research methods. There’s also the opportunity to choose optional modules to tailor your Master’s studies, as well as to conduct a piece of individual postgraduate research, creating a dissertation or business plan.

Throughout your time at Hertfordshire, you’ll also develop specialist skills that enable you to work effectively across national borders. These include communication, numeracy, graphics, multicultural team-working, reflective learning and the ability to critically analyse complex business challenges to reach considered creative solutions. You’ll also build a strong awareness of cultural, socio-economic and political differences.

This is a life-changing Master’s, dramatically developing your skills, understanding and confidence. You’ll graduate as a more mature professional, better able to cope with stress and change, more sensitive to cultural differences, more capable of operating in a fast-moving global environment, and more able to see opportunities where others only see threats.

You’ll have a unique combination of skills sought after by employers all over the world, as well as a strong network of international contacts – some will become your close friends and a few may even become your future business partners.
