Course description

Course module details  

Make the move into the fast paced world of international commerce with a masters degree designed to give you cutting-edge knowledge of global management issues. In today's globalised economy, the ability to think and work across boundaries and borders is imperative.

Taking a multidisciplinary approach, drawing on economics, finance, organisational theory, marketing and human resource management, you examine areas of international business and management in depth, including economic, financial, technological, marketing and managerial issues facing multinational enterprises. This allows you to apply your skills anywhere in the world.

You also receive a thorough grounding in social science research issues and methods, including techniques of quantitative and qualitative data collection, analysis and interpretation. The course includes a Masters thesis (research dissertation) on an international business-related topic. 

In addition, there is a possibility in the course to spend a semester at an international partner institution to broaden your horizons and enhance your employability in the global job market. As there are a limited number of exchange places available, the scheme is competitive and you can apply for a place once you are registered on the course.  Click on this link for details of the  exchange variant of the course .
