What will I study?
The MSc Business with International Management is designed around a set of modules that are common to all the ‘MSc Business with’ programmes. These modules cover general business functions, strategic management and organisational analysis. These will develop your strategic awareness, leadership potential and understanding of the theory and practice of international business.
In the second semester you will be given the opportunity to specialise in International Management. Students will consider issues of ethics and accountability that challenge multi-national organisations and the role played by corporate social responsibility; the varying approaches to marketing that are relevant to organisations working within a dynamic global environment and of strategic and international HRM perspectives.
In the final semester you will complete your research and write your dissertation. Every student has a personal research supervisor and will be required to submit an assessed research proposal prior to embarking on the dissertation itself.
This programme is also available as MSc Business with International Management with Advanced Practice which includes either an internship or project.
