The MSc International Business with Human Resource Management with Advanced Practice consists of eight taught modules, Global Business in Context, International Finance, International Marketing, Managing and Leading People in International Organisations, International HRM, Global Strategy, Applied Research Methods, and International Entrepreneurship, and either a Dissertation or an Applied Research Project.

The Advanced Practice offers you the opportunity to study a Masters with the addition of either an internship or applied consulting project and gain valuable workplace environment experience.

Successful completion of the eight taught modules, will allow you to acquire mastery of both the macro and micro contexts of international business with keener focus on a human resource management context. More specifically, you would enhance your ability to acquire, develop, and integrate international business theory whilst developing the skills to apply such theories in terms of international business practice and greater appreciation of human resource management matters in international business.
