Course Summary

This MSc is for students with an undergraduate degree aspiring to work in multinational organisations, in varied cultural settings with a sound understanding of what it takes to be a Global business entrepreneur, leader, manager and an effective team player. A large number of modules are being made available so students aspiring towards a particular career path, be it in marketing, branding, HR, consulting, can study relevant content.


On this course you can design your own journey with a global perspective in mind. You’ll have the freedom and flexibility to follow your interests right from semester one. And if you aren’t sure what your interests are just yet, don’t worry, you’ll have lots of opportunities to discover them! In your first semester you will begin by discovering the essentials of the area you are interested in. There is a wide choice of modules to get you started in marketing, accounting, finance, operations, logistics, human resources, organisational behaviour, entrepreneurship, business creation and branding. You’ll learn from leading academics and practitioners in each field, immersing yourself in aspects of business you are interested in, learning and developing awareness of a diverse range of business issues. You’ll study alongside students from these different specialisms too, and from all over the world, making for a true melting pot of ideas. This semester is all about exploring the different areas of business, discovering their key components, uncovering your interests and talents, and laying the foundation for deeper study and specialisation later in the course.


This module aims to build a comprehensive understanding of the traditional and cutting-edge risk management theories and practices. It will cover the main elements in the process of risk management, including risk identification, measurement, and mitigation and monitoring with a focus on the use of financial derivatives. Emphasis will be placed on the main financial risks that impact real-world investment performance internationally, such as interest rate risk, market risk, credit risk and currency risk. Teaching will be based on in-class interactive activities, real world example and the use of digital learning technologies, such as the trading simulation platform Financial Trading System (FTS) and the online poll platform Kahoot! The material taught is aligned with the curriculums of the Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA) Program and the Chartered Institute for Securities and Investment (CISI).
