Course content

Business is more globally connected than it has ever been. To be a successful business leader, you need to understand international markets and the way other nations do business.

Our CMI and IOE&IT-accredited MSc International Business and Management course is the most far-reaching of our postgraduate courses, as it provides a well-rounded knowledge of global management theories and practices. Students will receive CMI L7 Certificate in Strategic Management and Leadership Practice on completion of their degree.

Our graduates gain the advanced skills in cross-cultural management, problem solving, adaptability and decision making and leadership that they can apply to top-calibre management roles in a variety of business environments and functions nationally or globally.

This International Business and Management course at Kent is available for entry in both September and January. The September-entry version is also available with an optional Industrial Placement.

“The programme helped me to develop analytical skills and set an academic foundation for an international career.” Milan Marinkovic, MSc International Business Management
