Course content

Enhance your understanding of international business with our International Business Economics MSc. You gain a solid grounding in economic theory that explains business behaviour – both at firm-level and within the global macroeconomy.

You’ll study microeconomic principles relating to the theories of firms and consumers. We also cover macroeconomic principles underpinning national and international economies.

You’ll also learn about managerial economics and how firms optimise their human resources. This expands your employment opportunities in the business, management and financial sectors. And you’ll gain the skills – and have the opportunity – to undertake independent research in an area of business economics.
