Course Summary

Our MSc International Management will prepare you to pursue a career in management with multinational companies or companies engaged in international business, or to progress to one of Birkbeck's research degree programmes.

The programme examines the essentials of cross-border management theory and practice, and the core principles and practice of business and organisations in an international context. You will gain a broad knowledge and expertise in the design and implementation of strategy at different levels of the corporate organisation, particularly in an international dimension.

A range of option modules in international business and management as well as specific functional areas allow you to tailor your studies to your own personal or career requirements. You will then use your critical analysis and independent judgement skills to write a dissertation framing solutions to complex managerial problems in international business organisations.

The programme also allows you to develop personal and generic skills that are transferable to a wide range of research, teaching and work situations, including the skills of self-discipline, reflection, analysis, communication, leadership and lifelong learning.

CAREERS AND EMPLOYABILITY

Graduates can pursue careers in business, management, human resources, and local and national government. Possible professions include management consultant, human resources officer, or retail manager. This degree can also be useful in becoming a logistics and distribution manager or operational researcher.

We offer a comprehensive Careers Service to help you advance your career, while our in-house, professional recruitment consultancy, Birkbeck Talent, works with London’s top employers to help you gain work experience that fits in with your evening studies.

Modules

This module provides knowledge of multinational financial management and international financial transactions. It involves some of the key areas in contemporary international finance and problems that managers of multinational firms face in contemporary global markets. You will study the conceptual framework within which key financial decisions are made in multinational corporations, and gain skills in managing financial assets in a global environment.
