This programme will give you in-depth knowledge of international business and allow you to experience what it is like to work in a multinational organisation. Students in this programme develop the capacity for high-level analysis of firm internationalisation, international trade, investment, strategy and management, and gain an appreciation of the multinational firm, its environment and the activities of the international manager. You will gain exposure to different functional areas of the international business and experience real challenges first-hand.
This is an intensive and fast-paced programme over 12 months full-time or 24 months part-time, in which knowledge areas define the module foci and progression, and skill areas are overlaid across the programme. Modules are delivered over two semesters (September-May) with the Business Research Project/Placement conducted between May and August. Classes take place in blocks of two full days every two weeks, followed by less structured supervision contact over the third (summer) semester. Part-time students attend their sessions over two years, completing the Business Research Project in the second year.
