This MSc provides students with in-depth knowledge and expertise in the principles and application of international business and management. The degree provides a solid foundation for a career in international management with multinational corporations, as well as internationally focussed and newly internationalising domestic firms. It promotes cultural awareness and sensitivity in a dynamic and global business environment. The perspective is multidisciplinary, drawing on economic, organisational, political, sociological and strategic theories.
You will critically examine the complexities of international management and the impact of culture, and local and global norms on business. You will develop critical insights into key functional aspects of international management (e.g., strategy, global marketing, international corporate finance, international HRM), set within a framework of cross cultural management and how to link these dimensions to the key driver of organisational competitiveness sustainability: innovation. In addition, you will assess the ethical complexities involved in managing global organisations and the factors involved in responsible decision making. You will have the opportunity to synthesise theory and practice through an international study tour (which, in previous years, has been to Hong Kong).
