Why this course?

Strathclyde Business School has been delivering the Strathclyde MBA on an executive (part-time) basis via our international centres since 1988, with Malaysia being one or our inaugural MBA centres.

A pioneering and experienced MBA provider, we update and review our MBA to reflect the current business environment. Strathclyde’s MBA is strategy-focused and blends theoretical and practical business learning. Our MBA is flexible, and responsive to the needs of working individuals. Our wide choice of electives can help you personalise the programme to suit your business interests. These elective classes can be studied in Oman, as well as in Glasgow or at our other international centres, to give you an international learning and networking experience.

The MBA project gives you an opportunity to examine in depth a managerial, organisational or environmental issue of your choice over an extended period of time. Our Executive MBA allows you to study whilst continuing with your career and allows you to implement your learning into work.

What is the programme format?

The programme is designed for busy executives who need to combine career and family commitments with the demands of MBA studies. The flexibility of the part-time approach enables most participants to graduate within two years. However, study may be spread over a longer period if necessary, to a maximum of six years.

Typically, your MBA studies will be made up of:

  • monthly intensive seminars delivered by Strathclyde academics at our centre in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia
  • regular tutorials with our locally based counsellors
  • off-campus learning and support facilitated by our virtual learning environment

You’ll work in an international environment alongside like-minded classmates and be part of our long established network of students and alumni from our international postgraduate centres.

A highlight of the Strathclyde calendar is the annual MBA Summer School which takes place in Glasgow, over May and June. The summer school is open to all study routes of the MBA who have reached the elective stage of the programme. It's a great way to accelerate your studies, and network with a large group of international colleagues.

There are two intakes per year for the Strathclyde MBA in Malaysia in October and April.

Accreditation

Strathclyde Business School is triple accredited by the three international accreditation bodies – AMBA, EQUIS and AACSB. To gain accreditation by one of these bodies is an achievement in itself. To gain accreditation by all three bodies is a truly outstanding accomplishment and one of which we're proud.

Learning & teaching

Learning methods include:

  • face-to-face teaching by Strathclyde University staff in Malaysia
  • regular local counselling support
  • home/private study with specially prepared core learning materials
  • assignments and examinations set, marked or validated by Strathclyde University staff

Assessment

Assessment throughout the programme involves a combination of:

  • course work
  • workshops
  • examinations
  • group work
  • presentations

As far as possible, coursework will be related to your work environment. The examinations and assignments are set, marked and validated by the University of Strathclyde academic staff. They're identical to and assessed on the same basis as students undertaking the programme in the UK.

Examinations

There are two examination schedules each year:

  • August
  • March

All examinations are available at each sitting and you choose which is most appropriate for you.

Careers

We recognise that career development is one of the main reasons why people invest in an MBA. The MBA job market offers plenty of global opportunity but can be complex and challenging.

That's why we offer a dedicated careers service for MBA students. This consists of career planning and skills development as well as unlimited access to personal advice and coaching. Our careers service is delivered in-house and by a team of top consultants.

We work with you to complement your proactive job search efforts. We help you use your own particular career background and strengths to help with your next career move too.

You’ll gain the understanding and tools to develop your personal, strategic career plan, as well as the self-marketing and communication skills to make effective applications and impress at interview.

You’ll have the knowledge of the global job market and a range of contacts to make it work for you.

Career and Professional Development Programme

Our core professional development programme is delivered in four modules throughout the year. Each lasts for a week and are held in October, November, January and February. The programme includes:

CPD 1

  • Introduction to strategic career planning and how to get the job you want
  • Creating a personal profile (to be published on our profile site)

The LLM in Human Rights Law and Practice engages you in a holistic examination of the law, policy, and advocacy of human rights. As such, it provides the substantive knowledge, versatile skills and valuable networks necessary for mid-career professionals and recent graduates to work in the human rights field. The LLM is offered on both a full-time and part-time basis.

Why study International Human Rights at York?

The LLM in Human Rights Law and Practice provides the knowledge, skills and networks necessary for mid-career professionals and recent graduates to work in the human rights field. The LLM is offered on both a full-time and part-time basis. Our LLM is distinctive because students:

-Work on real human rights issues, which gives practical skills, hands-on experience and improved job prospects

-Get the opportunity to work alongside human rights defenders during a two-week field visit to Malaysia (student numbers permitting) or placement in York

-Learn from international human rights defenders based at the Centre

-Explore how international human rights law interacts with national public policy in various states

LLM Structure

Our core modules enable you to acquire holistic knowledge and the necessary socio-legal skills for a successful career in human rights practice or progression to PhD study. They allow you flexibility to undertake research on those human rights topics which interest you most (e.g. by writing essays, making presentations, or developing an advocacy campaign on a topic of your choice and by undertaking a human rights placement with an organisation that works on a topic of interest).

  • Legal Systems: Sources and Operation (10 credits; term 1)
  • Applying International Human Rights Law (20 credits; term 1)
  • The Practice of Fieldwork (20 credits; term 1)
  • Human Rights Placement (20 credits; term 1 & 2)
  • International Human Rights Laboratory (20 credits; term 2)
  • Research Skills and Methods (10 credits; term 3)
  • Dissertation (60 credits; terms 3 & 4)

In the second term, you will be able to choose one optional module from a large variety of courses taught by staff from the Centre of Applied Human Rights (CAHR) or other departments at the University of York. You will have the opportunity to tailor your programme to enhance its interdisciplinary and to explore areas where rights are being used in new and innovative way.

Optional modules taught at the York Law School

  • Corporate Responsibility and Law
  • Counter Terrorism
  • The Modern Actors of International Law (International Organisations, Non-State Armed Groups, Corporations)

Placements

A key part of the LLM is exposing students to the practice of international human rights law at the domestic level. Thus students have the opportunity to pursue a placement and related project with our NGO partners in Malaysia and York. The fieldwork takes place over a two week period in the autumn term, in either Kuala Lumpur or York. Please note that the Malaysia trip/placements will only run if there are sufficient student numbers.

Students will be expected to work together in small groups in partnership with a human rights organisation. This will include:

-Extensive background research on country context, the host organisation, relevant thematic issues etc.

-Devising a project prior to the field visit, in collaboration with the host organisation

-Two weeks of intensive work in Malaysia (student numbers permitting) or York in November and December

-Ongoing discussions about project completion once students return to York

Where after the LLM?

Our LLM provides career advice, networking opportunities, hands-on experience, and personalised reference letters to help our graduates find good jobs with human rights NGOs, humanitarian organisations, charities, policy think-tanks, national governments, and UN agencies.

For example, recent graduates are working with:

-Foreign and Commonwealth Office

-UK-based bar association

-Egyptian human rights NGO

-Development NGO in West Africa

-East and Horn of Africa Human Rights Defenders Network

-Human Rights Watch

-Pakistan's judicial sector

-UK-based NGO working with sub-Saharan children affected by HIV/AIDS

Introduction

Globalisation, the growth of multinational enterprises, the convergence of international accounting practices and the expansion of the European Union all contribute to the importance of an international focus in accounting and finance education.
The increasing influence of international financial reporting standards and the shortage in some countries of international accounting expertise have led to significant demand for relevant education. In the EU the speed and significance of recent reforms have also led to a demand for Master’s level education which reflects these developments and facilitates transition.

Accreditation

The global accounting body ACCA recognises the MSc International Accounting and Finance giving graduates of the course automatic exemption from four of their papers with a fifth and sixth possible based on the spring semester options that are chosen.

Key information

- Degree type: MSc, Postgraduate Certificate, Postgraduate Diploma

This is a tri-campus MA programme. Students study on the UK campus for the first semester and move to either Ningbo or Kuala Lumpur campus for their second semester. It is a genuinely distinctive programme allowing students to study the countries of Asia, and the relations between them (and between the rest of the world).

The course is taught by academics across the University's UK, China and Malaysia campuses, who are experts on Asian politics, history and international relations.

An MA Asian and International Studies is an ideal foundation to embark on a career in Asia. The time spent in either China or Malaysia will develop your knowledge and experience of the culture and politics of the region.

The core module, 'Global Asia', will introduce you to Pan-Asian themes such as nationalism, globalisation, environmental challenges, resource politics and gender relations. It challenges the prevailing conception of 'Asia Rising' as a new phenomenon and will also allow you to specialise on specific country or regional studies.

This course will enable you to immerse yourself in the culture of these countries, and to take language options if required. Accommodation for all three semesters will be organised by the University, although it is not covered by the course fees.
