Course content

Understanding international business provides a context for identifying opportunities and analysing risks inherent in the global environment. MSc International Business Economics is designed for those who have a solid background in business and management studies and want to expand that knowledge internationally with a clear focus on economics.

The programme provides a grounding in aspects of quantitative methods, business economics, the international business environment, the multinational enterprise, and the international macro financial environment. Combining international business and applied economics provides students with a solid foundation for work within international organisations or as an applied/business economist.

Students have the opportunity to incorporate research themes of economics and international finance into their research projects and independent studies. Indeed, this could provide a route to more advanced study at doctoral level for promising candidates.
