Why choose this course?

It will add to your existing skills and knowledge providing you with enhanced understanding and abilities which will prepare you for Masters courses, whilst also providing English support if you need help in this area

The MSc International Business Management offers an exciting opportunity to develop your knowledge in an area of high growth and global demand. The MSc IBM has been developed to offer you the opportunity to engage with a number of specific subjects relevant to global, national, and local business. Students who are considering starting their own company, joining a graduate training scheme with a multinational, or developing a broader understanding of international business will not only find the course highly relevant, but equally rewarding towards developing future career prospects in established and emerging global markets.

The programme delivery of the MSc IBM benefits from a number of close links with large multinational enterprises and innovative agile firms in providing a rich, exciting and challenging active learning environment. The team of Professors and Senior Academics on the course provide an extensive level of expertise in their respective disciplines from research to practitioner background. This will enrich your learning experience in a dynamic environment where you will be expected to participate at the highest level towards furnishing you with a Masters Degree for your future career.

In today's highly dynamic global environment, a complexity of factors, including global logistics, supply chain management, technology, finance, HR, marketing and cross-border management, have a significant impact on business systems and functions. As such this programme is designed to develop the mix of skills, knowledge and understanding you need as a manager with a global mindset. The MSc IBM has been designed to be equally applicable to those with wide ranging managerial experience or management education and those who come with limited knowledge in these areas. You will be provided opportunities to develop a blend of functional and operational perspectives for a range of managerial levels, roles and responsibilities in an international setting. You will integrate and contextualise your knowledge and skills in a range of modules which have an international focus.

The comprehensive study of management and the use of a range of learning strategies such as live case studies, visiting industry speakers and a wide range of active learning approaches will enhance your career in business and management.
