Course overview:

If you are a recent graduate, or working in a management role, and are looking for a master’s-level programme which combines general management with a strong international dimension, then this programme will appeal to you.

It provides clear links between theory and international business practice and places discussion of relevant management techniques and themes in the context of the international stage. It focuses on areas such as global decision-making within operations and finance, global economics and cultural issues within management in an international environment.

It concludes with the dissertation, which provides the opportunity for you to carry out a major international business project.
