International Management

The award-winning MSc in International Management is a one-year taught programme that provides students with in-depth knowledge and expertise in the principles and application of international business and management. The programme aspires to develop the student’s ‘global mindset’ by developing cultural awareness, sensitivity and curiosity around global industrial systems, international business models, geopolitics, global finance and worldwide societal norms and changes. We have designed the programme so that students can combine core subjects with choices from a range of optional modules that will allow them to customise and gear their masters towards their own particular focused career path. This personalisation of the master’s offers students an opportunity to tailor the programme to suit their interests and ambitions.

It covers the various functional areas of management from an international context e.g. International Business, International HRM, International Supply Chain, International Entrepreneurship, Global Strategy and Global Marketing.
