The programme is designed specifically for non-business graduates and provides opportunities to develop business knowledge on top of your primary degree.
This programme is geared at providing non-business graduates with the skills required to develop and promote products and services in an international environment while furthering their business skills and knowledge. Students build upon their own discipline (science, engineering, computing etc.) to develop solid understanding of Business Development, Internationalisation and Innovation in an interesting educational environment. Students will expand their business knowledge and skills through simulation, guest speakers, and an international trip. Students will also undertake an industry consultancy project which will prepare them for opportunities in the workplace. The programme is an excellent opportunity for students who want to complement their degree with business skills.
The MSc in International Business is aimed at graduates who wish to build on their previous non-business related degree and want to develop their skills for career advancement. It is open to graduates from non-business programmes who want to expand their horizon when it comes to their career. The programme should also appeal to those interested in increasing their business acumen with a view to capitalising on their existing skills sets.
The international Business Field Trip is an opportunity for immersion in non- Irish culture which serves to enhance and deepen the learning experience for students involved. The trip focuses on the skills required to develop business opportunities in new markets. The Seminar Series module allows students the opportunity to draw upon their learning throughout the programme and to synthesise that in the context of some direct exposure to industry leaders. The Applied Business Consultancy Project is a capstone module which brings together the learning from the programme which is applied to a business-set project.
