In a world that is rapidly globalising, future managers need to be competent in the latest international business models as well as in cross-cultural literacy. The MSc International Business programme provides you with the latest understanding of the world of international business in a rapidly globalising world. Focusing on both the theory and application of international business, you develop academic and employability skills. No prior background in international business is required. The modules in the first and second semesters equip you with the range of knowledge and skills that are needed to succeed in the dynamic and ever-changing world of international business. You will complete the programme by undertaking either a placement with a work-based learning project, or a more traditional research project.

The design of our postgraduate programmes focuses on four taught modules and a capstone project. We believe that simplicity in programme design provides you with a better learning experience. The dynamic and challenging nature of contemporary business does not isolate concepts into small packages – and neither do our programmes. This approach links concepts together as they are in the real world, and enables you to focus in on what really matters.
