Course Summary

Open to graduates from any discipline, our Master of International Business (MSc) course is a specialist award for career entry or career development that will prepare you to successfully integrate with businesses operating an international platform.

The purpose of this degree is to allow you to hone your professional, analytical and personal capabilities in order to develop a global perspective for business. This will be accomplished by developing the agile, curious, resilient and innovative mindsets that are necessary to cope with the levels of uncertainty, complexity, ambiguity and risk that are so evident in a rapidly changing world.

At every juncture, you will be encouraged to consider how you can add value to business processes while being mindful of the ethical, social and cultural responsibilities and challenges facing all organisations.

About this course

This course aims to develop a scientific, theoretical and practical understanding of, and the ability to engage with, business activity at an international level. You will develop a critical appreciation of relevant theories when aligned to practice, an understanding of the importance of data and its analysis and will have the opportunity to reflect on the application of your learning.

Using BGU staff’s significant expertise in business expertise, and that of a variety of guest speakers and international connections, the programme is designed not only to increase theoretical knowledge of business processes, but to challenge you to acquire and analyse the skills and attributes required by future-fit leaders and managers, allowing a full appreciation of what is needed to engage with global markets.

At every level, you will learn to collaborate and communicate with each other as will be expected in a business environment. Taught delivery will be complemented by group coaching sessions to encourage maximum peer-peer interaction, and overseas students will be ‘buddied’ with UK students.

At every juncture, theory and practice will be challenged by considering the UN 17 Sustainable Development Goals, and all modules will acknowledge and link to enterprise and entrepreneurial skills and attributes as defined by The Entrecomp Framework.

The course will naturally promote the use of ‘business English’, however this is further enhanced by collaboration with external partners and stakeholders internationally to introduce a much wider social and cultural palette of business practitioners who use English to communicate.

You will be supported via individual Learning Contracts that will identify and personalise your individual learning goals that augment the learning outcomes for the course.


The Dissertation forms a capstone to the MSc in International Business, providing you with the opportunity to demonstrate your learning from the course. This will take one of two forms - a literature-based study of an aspect of international business, or an empirical study which will address a live business problem/ challenge with the opportunity for you to explore viable solutions which can realistically be sustainably implemented.
