Course Summary

Our International Management MSc is designed to develop your knowledge in global and multi-cultural management.

This course is part of our Management MSc programme but includes an extended period of at one of our international partner institutions in Europe or the USA where you can enhance your language skills.

During the course you’ll be working on case studies and live client projects. There’s also an option of paid work experience which will help you put the latest academic thinking and business strategies into practice as you prepare for future management roles.

Initially you will complete the same core modules as other management courses. At the end of term two you can choose to specialise or continue on a more general route toward our Management MSc qualification.

The other specialisms offered are:

Management (Entrepreneurship) MSc
Management (Human Resource Management) MSc.

Accredited by the Chartered Management Institute (CMI), this course progresses you towards Chartered Manager status – the highest level that can be achieved in the management profession. You will also be eligible for membership to the Institute of Directors.

Course structure

An innovative alternative to an MBA, this one-year, full-time course is designed for graduates of any subject with or without work experience. Case studies, live client projects, company visits and the option of paid work experience help prepare you for management by putting the latest academic thinking and business strategies into practice.

Teaching takes place over three terms, form late September to early June, with breaks after assessments in mid-December to early January and late March to mid-April.

Class attendance averages 14 to 18 hours a week, plus time for group work and independent study, with variations as you progress through the course. There are some special intensive workshops on topics such as leadership, management and research, and a one-week tutor-led international study visit to companies in another European country.

Your final project will take place over the summer after teaching finishes. Your optional work-experience based final project may continue for up to one-year past the end of teaching.

Career prospects

This course will help you to work more effectively as a manager and pursue opportunities in training, recruitment and other areas of HR. It will also prove valuable if you are interested in pursuing work as a business negotiator, consultant, commercial interpreter, lecturer or researcher.

If you want to pursue a career in academia, the research skills training and experience you acquire on the course may be used to develop a proposal for a subsequent research degree or for published papers.

Students will also exit with Pgdip/Pgcert.
