Course Summary

In order to operate across borders, organisations need a good understanding of the international business environment.

This course covers some of the major issues which affect enterprises working in different countries, from local circumstances to international politics.

You'll develop your skills in critical analysis, information processing, and data presentation. You'll prepare for a range of careers in international business and management, with the skills and outlook to thrive in an increasingly interconnected global workplace.

This course is one of three interrelated Masters programmes covering business and management in global contexts.

Course content

In your first term you'll study some of the core issues in international business. You'll develop a theoretical toolkit with which to investigate and discuss the strategies used in the international business environment.

Later you'll specialise your studies while continuing to develop crucial skills for independent learning and research. In the Spring Term you'll choose an option module to develop a deeper understanding of an area of international business and management.

Careers and skills

This MSc has been designed to help you thrive in a global workplace. The course will give you the knowledge and skills needed for management roles in private and public sector organisations around the world.

Our graduates go on to careers in all aspects of business and management. Each year, some continue their studies, joining the York Management School doctoral programme.

Modules

This module provides an introduction to some of the mainstream, as well as critical, approaches to the International Political Economy (IPE) that is the context within which business operates. Conceptually, the module focuses on how politics and political systems impact on business, and in so doing, explores comparative approaches to political economy as well as the emerging literature on globalisation. Particular attention will be devoted to understanding how different approaches to IPE give rise to different theoretical and methodological approaches which, in turn, inform alternative and normative views on international business, development, and public policy.
