Course Summary

Response to Covid-19: Our focus is on providing a safe and welcoming learning environment for our students. We have taken every measure, in line with Government guidance, to ensure continued access to learning.

As part of our response to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, we plan to deliver this course combining face-to-face, on-campus learning, with online learning activities, continuing to follow Government guidance and social distancing measures as required. As restrictions ease, face-to-face opportunities will be increased as appropriate and it is safe for us to do so. Our plans are based on public health advice and robust risk assessments and will be regularly reviewed and updated in that context. More information about our response to Covid-19 and FAQs are available here.

About this course:

The MSc International Business with Advanced Practice aims to allow students to acquire mastery of both the macro and micro contexts of international business, with the addition of either an internship or applied consulting project. It is designed to enable students to build, develop, and integrate international business theory, and develop the skills to then apply this in terms of international business practice. The Advanced Practice element offers students the opportunity to gain valuable workplace environment experience.

The MSc International Business stage consists of eight taught modules and either a Dissertation or an Applied Research Project. Successful completion of the eight taught modules will allow you the ability to acquire, develop, and integrate international business theory whilst developing the skills to apply such theories in terms of international business practice.

The Masters Dissertation option, provides the opportunity to conceive, design and satisfactorily implement a substantial research project within the broad subject area of international business, whilst the Applied Research Project option enables students to apply the theoretical concepts encountered on the MSc International Business program and the practical experience gained from the Advanced Practice stage to a contemporary management issue.


Each module is assessed by coursework only (may include class tests).

Careers and progression:

Student and employer needs are reflected in the development of this programme and evidenced in the career destinations and further development of our graduates.

Academic supervisors provide advice and guidance to students during their process. On successful completion of their 15,000 word dissertation students will be awarded their MSc in International Business.
