Course content

Our International Management course is designed to equip you with the knowledge and skills to enable you to manage and lead in private, voluntary and public domains. It has a specific focus on managing businesses on a global scale and will help you to develop an understanding of practices from around the world.

You will be exposed to live case studies to allow you to gain an appreciation of real business contexts. You will also be encouraged to develop your skills and competencies as managers throughout the course and to apply your knowledge in a final, business related research project. Employability is a key aspect of the course and you will be given the opportunity to customise your degree according to your individual career goals.

Key features

  • Cross-learning amongst students of diverse backgrounds and cultures from around the world
  • Opportunities to work with senior academics who have extensive experience in Project Management
  • Critical insights into the emerging field of sustainability and sustainable development
  • Opportunities to experience relevant practice through the internship pathway option
  • A flexible design allowing two entry points, in September and January

The internship

An optional internship (up to 6 months in duration) is available to all students, taking place on completion of the taught modules. This internship will not be credit-rated but will allow the student to gain first-hand experience within a real business environment to enhance their future employability. Students may also choose to make use of this opportunity to base their Research Project on a business-related issue arising during the internship. There may be possibilities, with the employer’s permission, to gain access to research participants and primary data, and to apply their understanding of theories and principles discussed within their programme to a live organisational setting.

Securing the internship is the responsibility of the students to arrange and is not necessarily paid. Students who request the internship option will need to secure this by a specified deadline. If the deadline isn't met, the course will revert to the route without internship .
