Built upon international business management disciplines, this course will equip you with the knowledge and skills needed to thrive in this field.
Why study with us?
This programme has been specially designed to provide you with an in-depth, globally relevant education in business and management. Upon completing the MSc International Business and Management, you’ll be able to:
Global People Management (20 credits)
During this module, you can expect to analyse, explore, and assess the challenges and complexities of people management operating in an international context. By acquiring a critical awareness of comparative practices that consider the entire employee life cycle, you’ll develop an approach to global implementation that is ethically responsible and sustainable, while being sensitive to the cultural and institutional factors that influence people management as a practice.
International Business and Finance (20 credits)
This module serves as your introduction to International Business and Finance and will help you gain a critical approach to understanding the main financial issues faced by business managers. You’ll build your knowledge of the international finance system; the interpretation of financial reports to guide decision making; the role of financial intermediaries; and much more.
Sustainable (Business and) Management (40 credits)
Your coursework here will support the development of your theoretical, conceptual, and empirical skills, which in turn will help you understand and critically evaluate ethical and sustainable business practices. You’ll study the impact these have on businesses – as well as society – in a dynamic, global marketplace, and enhance your awareness of the interconnectedness of international markets.
Strategic Futures (40 credits)
On this module you can look forward to gaining a robust understanding of the strategic management process and its importance to organisations. You’ll see how models and frameworks of strategic management can identify and respond to global trends, and how you can position these in the context of strategic thinking and change within organisations.
Research Project (60 credits)
With this final module, you’ll have the chance to put your learning from the course into a self-directed academic or practice-oriented research project. You’ll be challenged with identifying, analysing, and addressing an issue or topic in the Business and Management discipline – this can even be based on an ongoing trend or occurrence in your own line of work.
