You realise that business is increasingly conducted in a global marketplace and wish to gain essential skills necessary to understand and manage business challenges and opportunities in such a setting. You want a career in organisations such as multinational corporations, international non-governmental organisations, multilateral international organisations, and consultancies, many of which have offices in Ireland. You want to be taught and supervised by leading, research active international business and management academics who provide an engaging learning environment.
International Business is focused on organisations that do not limit their operations to a single nation state, such as Citigroup and Google. The MSc programme in International Business considers why these organisations exist, how they are successful in the ever-changing global environment, and what their activities mean for the different countries in which they do business.
This programme provides students with the knowledge and skills required to survive and thrive in an increasingly interconnected world. Students will gain an understanding of the tools, techniques and practical skills associated with operating an organisation across borders, and an appreciation of the interactions between firms, governments and society in an international context.
This programme offers business students an opportunity to gain in-depth knowledge with regard to global business. The modules undertaken in this programme reflect such a perspective with students best placed to take up employment within global organisations.
Students will study a combination of modules that address the increasingly integrated and interdependent global economy within which international business is conducted, and the core functional areas of business from an international perspective. A dissertation is also required.
Modules are focused on core theories and contemporary issues related to international business strategy, accounting and financial aspects of international business, international supply chain networks, human resource management, marketing, as well as supporting methods for business and research.
The MSc International Business programme is run in a multicultural teaching environment with local and international students working and engaging together.
