About Extended MSc International Business (London) at Ulster University London and Birmingham, Ulster University

The Extended MSc International Business integrates the Graduate Certificate programme with our standard MSc International Business programme to allow entry for students with qualifications equivalent to a standard degree (third class, pass or ordinary).

This extended programme aims to develop your academic and study skills from the outset of the programme. You will then be well equipped to acquire a mastery of both the macro and micro contexts of international business. These programmes will include the ability to acquire, develop, and integrate international business theory whilst developing the skills to then apply this in terms of international business practice.

The Masters dissertation provides the opportunity to conceive, design and satisfactorily implement a substantial research project within the broad subject area of international business.

You will have the opportunity to develop knowledge, skills and insight in the following areas:

  • Build knowledge and understanding of the political, social and cultural aspects of different trade blocs, particularly the European Union, Asia and the USA.
  • Analysing core management techniques from varying perspectives to understand their application on an international scale.
  • The shared experience of other students and business professionals from varied cultural, economic and employment backgrounds.
