This programme gives students the opportunity to develop deeper understanding and analytical excellence in two fields of increasing importance, international relations and international business, drawing from the combined strengths of UNNC's School of International Studies and Nottingham University Business School (NUBS). A wide selection of modules allows them to specialise in a variety of different areas in international relations and international business. Dissertations are written under the guidance of experienced academic staff, which include world-leading international relations experts focusing on China, Japan, the UK, the US, the Middle East, Africa, Europe and Russia, among others. Students will be introduced to key concepts and theories in both fields, will be trained in research methods, important historical and contemporary cases and hot-button issues, and gain access to (and we hope contribute to) the latest research in international relations and international business.
Students can choose from a range of modules in international relations and international business, which include, in addition to subjects directly related to international relations and international business, modules in diplomacy/foreign policy analysis, development, international economics, dimensions of world history, international organisations, European politics, regionalism, traditional and non-traditional security, environmental policy, area studies (including China, Russia, the US, Europe, the UK, Japan, the Middle East, Africa, etc.) and of course research methods, to name a few. Small seminars allow students to develop their analytical skills, and oral and written presentation techniques, as well as their capacity to research, compile and produce thematic reports, essays, and papers.
Case studies and occasional simulation games deepen students' theoretical and practical knowledge of negotiations, diplomacy, world history and international relations. The dissertation will give students the opportunity to prove the breadth and depth of their knowledge.
Julia Aughenbaugh (USA) - MA International Higher Education
“I've really enjoyed the opportunity to learn about higher education from an international perspective at UNNC. As an MA student in the International Higher Education program, I have taken an internship on campus each semester to learn more about university management.
My course has organized trips to nearby universities so that we can learn more about other unique global partnerships. I get insight into the British education system at UNNC and the Chinese systems at other universities in the area.
My education here has opened my mind to new systems of university management while also focusing my interests. I've also really enjoyed all of the free field trips and activities that the university offers, it has helped me get to know Chinese history and culture better."
Kanjanaporn Tienchat-A-Nan (Thailand) - MSc Entrepreneurship and Innovation Management
"From this programme, I think the most beneficial part is doing a business plan. This prepares you for your future business. It makes you think about all the perspectives involved in running a business, and not just having an idea and desire to start your own business.
We have to concern about product/services, financial matters, cashflow and the marketing plan. Some of these aspects I did not know. I had to study them to complete a business plan. After the study with Nottingham China, I am now running a successful business."
Olamide Balogun (Nigeria) - MSc Entrepreneurship and Innovation Management
"Having been a student of this university for 5 years now (undergraduate study for the first 4 years), I can safely say that I never thought I would be receiving the president’s award for the outstanding master student at the graduation ceremony. Let me tell you that it wasn’t always easy but the journey I can say was worth it.
I have learnt along the way that 'for every NO I received brought me closer to the YES I never imagined'. I sincerely do want to thank everyone that has played a role in helping me reach a stage. I enjoyed my study here at UNNC."
