WHAT ARE THE KEY STRENGTHS OF THIS PROGRAM?

The MBA offers a 500 hour general management program in a triple-accredited International Business School.
The Grenoble Graduate School of Business MBA is highly applied in content, delivered by a team that brings together academic specialists together with managers and consultants from a wide range of sectors.

PROGRAM DELIVERY: FULL-TIME STRUCTURE

The course modules are taught over one academic year from September to the end of June.
The class sessions take place on a regular basis from Monday to Friday. Upon successful completion of these modules, participants will begin their Final Management Project. Students normally work part- or full-time during this phase. The choice of location for the project is entirely the student's own.

Foreign Language classes: the Full-Time delivery includes optional foreign language, especially French.

Program

PHASE 1 CORE COURSES

The program is a balanced and challenging one, equipping participants with numerical and analytical skills, communication and interpersonal skills, plus insights into current managerial issues in geopolitics, macroeconomics and governance. Through regular group work on cases and individual assignments on management dilemmas, students will develop their expertise in budgetary and financial management as well as in people management. Strategic analysis and Negotiations skills are developed through face-to-face team negotiations to resolve authentic and complex cases.

Personal Development Week in Grenoble Each Year -

Students from each campus are invited to attend this week together, enabling students from 4 centers to network and to attend seminars and conferences together on key management questions. Topics covered typically include Conflict Resolution, Interview Techniques, Radical Career Change, Salary Negotiations, and Effective Leadership.

Global Management Challenge -

The Global Management Challenge simulation is one of the highlights of the core courses. Small teams of MBA students will compete in a complex management simulation against leading business and engineering schools, firstly in France followed by international play-offs in the final rounds. The decision-making is intense and the experience is a roller-coaster ride of changing share price, volatile business environments, and exchanges - often heated! - with fellow team members.

In 2016 all full-time Grenoble students will visit Barcelona, Spain for the International Human Resources module.

PHASE 2 SPECIALIZATIONS

From a menu of up to 8 alternative choices, students can personalize their MBA program for 20% of their total class sessions. The content is focused on professional management activity, such as Management Consulting, or management in a range of functional areas. For many participants, the specialization choice will also determine the focus of the Final Management Project: for example, choosing a Finance elective can lead directly to a project in the area of Finance.

PHASE 3 FINAL MANAGEMENT PROJECT

During this phase, program participants are free to locate to anywhere in the world and to complete their projects while pursuing professional activity. The Project is an opportunity that different students use in different ways. A Full-Time student may use the project to demonstrate value and capabilities to a potential employer. For some students, ideas for entrepreneurial ventures can be assessed before the start-up is launched.

CNCP RECOGNITION

Students graduating from the MBA also receive a certificate conferring them the title of Manager International. This title, recognized by the Commission Nationale de la Certification Professionnelle - an agency belonging to the French Ministry of Labor - attests to the successful acquisition of a core of international management skills and knowledge necessary for future roles as managers in an international context.

The MA programme is for suitably qualified graduates from a range of disciplines wishing to pursue studio-based spatial research in the context of theoretical work- http://www.gold.ac.uk/pg/ma-research-architecture/

The MA programme has been developed to allow you to combine theoretical research with critical spatial practice. Lectures, seminars and workshops will equip you with a rigorous grounding in critical spatial theory.

The theoretical module provides a thorough coverage of the historical, philosophical and technological aspects of the intersection of space, power and conflict.

This programme is orientated towards graduates who want to undertake training in research architecture before proceeding to PhD study, or to pursue or enhance a career in spatial practices.

As with our MPhil/PhD track, our MA programme draws a multidisciplinary mix of innovative architects and other spatial practitioners, albeit in the early stages of their careers. It also gains international exposure through student participation in major exhibitions.

A recent external examination report concluded: “This is an excellent course and possibly the most innovative one in the country".

This MA offers a distinctive combination of analytical and practical methods for the creative investigation of plays and performance texts. Read more
This MA offers a distinctive combination of analytical and practical methods for the creative investigation of plays and performance texts. Its historical range is wide and students should be ready to research and trouble-shoot plays from different eras, whether classical Greek and Roman, medieval, early modern or contemporary.

Traditional formats of discussion groups and seminars are coupled with workshops and problem-solving sessions which address all the negotiations involved in transferring words on the page into a fully realised performance. The main emphasis of the MA is on the interpretation of text through the consideration of acting and directing processes, production conditions, historical context, and institutional and cultural politics. The MA incorporates masterclasses by leading theatre professionals which are part of an integrated visitor programme.

The MA in Theatre: Writing, Directing and Performance is unique in that it is designed to accommodate both students who may wish to pursue further academic study and students who wish to go into the theatre or media industries. We aim to produce graduates with a sophisticated understanding of how plays in performance work, and to develop high-quality researchers and theatre practitioners who understand the practical dynamics of process and production. Applicants may have a range of academic backgrounds and extensive practical experience is not a prerequisite for the course, but students must be willing to enter into the spirit of practical experiment whatever their particular strengths.

Aims

-To promote cutting-edge interdisciplinary thinking and collaboration
-To provide analytical and practical methods for the creative investigation of play and performance texts
-To offer in-depth analysis of the dynamics of the processes of writing, acting and directing
-To provide an understanding of the need to conduct investigation within historical, political, institutional and cultural frames
-To develop high-quality theatre researchers and practitioners

Because of the innovative emphasis on acquiring a wide range of analytical and practical skills centred around the performance and production of theatre texts, students are highly employable.

An in-depth understanding of narrative structures and their visual, technical, performative and political dimensions is of paramount importance to the entertainment industry and a significant number at the top of these businesses support this programme because it plugs an increasingly serious gap in the skills market. Recent students from the BA and MA Writing and Performance (a forerunner of this MA) have benefited from placements with theatre, film and television companies, and the MA in Theatre: Writing, Directing and Performance builds on that ethos. Placements have been informally arranged subject to student interest and industry availability from year to year.

Past graduates have gone on to study PhDs and also to conservatoires to continue their practical training. Many are now working as screenwriters, playwrights, actors, directors, designers, producers, technicians, literary managers, dramaturges, and literary agents. A significant number of graduates have set up their own theatre companies. Others work in theatre-in-education initiatives, arts funding organisations, youth theatre, journalism, publishing, and dramatherapy. Past students are also employed by major animation companies, and have gained work as script editors and production assistants.

Course description

Mediation is developing at great speed in many countries. For example, it is part of the civil justice system of England and Wales through the Civil Procedure Rules and the provisions in the rules which encourage the use of mediation. Additional government initiatives in England and Wales have been introduced such as automatic referral to mediators for small claims court matters.

In Europe, the EU Directive on Cross-Border Mediation has led to the implementation of mediation legislation throughout the EU. Beyond Europe, other developments continue: for example, Japan has introduced mediation in its financial services sector; Hong Kong is promoting mediation through new legislation protecting confidentiality of the process; the International Bar Association has drafted investor-state mediation rules; Nigeria continues to develop its multi-door courthouses through which mediation is a primary process.

The Postgraduate Distance Learning Diploma in International Dispute Resolution - Mediation has a strong focus on mediation and conciliation. The course will introduce you to the process of mediation and its role in the resolution of disputes. The diploma not only provides an understanding of the theoretical, practical and ethical problems relating to international mediation, but can also provide a stepping stone for professionals to become involved in international alternative dispute resolution (ADR).

The diploma is aimed not only at lawyers, but also at other professionals who may be involved in mediation - be it as a disputant, representative or perhaps as a mediator: a legal qualification will not be a prerequisite for admission, although you will be expected to appreciate that the course will involve an understanding of law and legal implications. References and materials will be legally orientated, but this will enable the non-lawyer to be better equipped to deal with the issues raised in international business mediation.

This programme will:
◦Give you a thorough grounding on all major issues arising in day-to-day international mediation practice.
◦Promote academic research of the highest standard on selected topics of interest.
◦Allow flexibility to enable you to plan and balance your study and work commitments.

Why is the course relevant?

Mediation is developing at great speed in many countries. For example, it is part of the civil justice system of England and Wales through the Civil Procedure Rules and the provisions in the rules which encourage the use of mediation. Additional government initiatives in England and Wales have been introduced such as:

A pilot scheme for the automatic referral to mediation in the UK County Court Money Claims Centre for claims of less than £5,000.
Automatic referral to mediators for small claims court matters (claims up to £5,000).
A Court of Appeal scheme whereby appeals of personal injury and contract claims of up to £200,000 will be automatically recommended for mediation.
The Department for Business, Innovations and Skills has instituted a pilot scheme for two regional mediation networks for small and medium sized enterprises.
In Europe, the EU Directive on Cross-Border Mediation (2008/52/EC) has led to the implementation of mediation legislation throughout the EU. Beyond Europe, other developments continue: for example, Japan has introduced mediation in its financial services sector; Hong Kong is promoting mediation through new legislation protecting confidentiality of the process; the International Bar Association has drafted investor-state mediation rules; Nigeria continues to develop its multi-door courthouses through which mediation is a primary process.

Employability & Careers

Graduates from the School’s MSc suite of programmes have proved to be extremely attractive to employers and have entered a wide range of careers including marketing, supply chain management, operations management, accounting and general management. Such multinational employers include BAE Submarine Systems, Bombardier Aerospace, Pricewaterhouse Coopers, Rolls Royce. Other students have gone on to pursue research towards an MPhil or PhD.

Although the MSc International Business is a new offering, we expect our graduates will be competitive in these range of graduate roles. The programme is specifically designed to equip graduates for work in multinational companies or managing in an international context.

Module Information

Fundamentals of International Business Strategy

This module aims to provide a theoretical and practical understanding of the core international business strategy topics and establish the foundation for students to draw on in later modules, such as Business in the World Economy (Semester 2). Topics may include issues related to the international environment (globalisation, theories of international trade and investment, the political environment, and international monetary and financial environment), international business strategy (opportunity assessment and product strategy) and foreign market entry (opportunity assessment and international marketing).

Human Resource Management and Work in the Global Context

The module is designed to give students an advanced appreciation of the changing nature of work, as well as key aspects of international human resource management. This module will focus on three key themes, namely: the nature of changes being placed on work systems due to increased global competition (e.g. cultural difference, employment effects of foreign direct investment); issues of managing across borders and cross-culturally within the modern business organisation (e.g. issues of expatriation); and finally, an understanding of key issues involved in the comparative study of work and work systems (e.g. comparative employment relations).

The Multinational Enterprise

The module aims to familiarise students with the organisational form unique to international business (The Multinational Enterprise), and explore some the advantages enjoyed, and challenges faced, by these firms. The Multinational Enterprise module complements the broader context covered in Fundamentals of International Business Strategy. Topics covered may include the history of MNEs, MNEs as an organisational form, strategic alliances formation, and foreign direct investment.

International Management in Practice

The aim of this module is to increase student understanding of negotiation and problem-solving techniques in the context of international management. Often multinational organisations are portrayed as large, impersonal organisations with the freedom to roam the world. This depiction rarely, if ever, reflects reality. Actions of multinationals are frequently the product of bargains and deals concluded internally or externally with other firms and public agencies. The nature and quality of these bargains have a big influence on how multinationals operate and how they perform. Topics covered may include principles of negotiations, negotiating subsidiary mandate change, negotiating financial packages for inward investment and problem-solving in international supply chains.

Business in the World Economy

This module, in keeping with the tradition of regional and country studies in International Business, seeks to highlight the variety of environments and the diverse influences on the conduct of international business. As such the module will highlight the contingent and interdependent nature of the international environment for firms today. Dividing the global economy into major regions and selecting key national economies, the module analysis each from an institutional perspective at the supra-national, regional and national level, as a potential market and host location, as a sources of international business activity, from a civil society perspective and in terms of the business-government relationship. Typical regions examined include China, Americas, Middle East and Asia-Pacific.

Global Supply Chains and Logistics

The aim of the module is to provide students with an understanding of the structure, operation and challenges inherent in managing global supply chains. Today’s organisations must manage a globally-diffuse supply base and manage the flow of materials and product between suppliers, factories and operating sites. This module provides students with the ability to understand the challenges of operating global supply chains, including developing sourcing strategy, buying from low-cost countries, logistics management, and selection of appropriate transportation and storage modes.

Management Control in International Business

The aim of this module is to equip students to understand and evaluate managerial control systems used in international or multi-divisional organisations and the extent to which those systems effectively enforce control and influence behaviour. The module explores the traditional and contemporary techniques and practices used by managers in controlling the operations of international or multi-divisional businesses. The applicability of techniques and practices to given situations and the impact on participants’ behaviour is explored in the context of improving organisational effectiveness.

Research Methods

This course aims to introduce students to the philosophical and ethical underpinnings of business and management research, as well as to a range of quantitative and qualitative techniques used therein.

The LLM in Environmental Law provides a unique specialisation in one of the most rapidly developing areas of law. Environmental law is one of the most challenging fields that has grown very rapidly over the past four decades and is now one of the key areas of both domestic and international law. At SOAS, we understand the environment in a broad sense which includes not only environmental issues strictly speaking but also all the links that they have with other areas such as natural resources, human rights, economic development trade or intellectual property rights.

The SOAS degree offers a distinct mix of modules that covers all the main areas of environmental law in their international and national dimensions. The international and global nature of many environmental issues makes the international law component a key part of the LLM in Environmental Law. We offer all the general topics that make up the core of international environmental law. Additionally, we focus specifically on the North-South dimension of international environmental issues given the key role this plays in most international environmental negotiations.

The LLM in Environmental Law specifically seeks to put international environmental law in its national context and examines the broad legal frameworks negotiated at the international level in the context of their implementation in selected countries of the South. It thus provides a much more grounded context to the study of environmental law.

Further, we also study the legal regimes of individual countries of the South to provide much more specific analysis of the discipline at the level of its implementation in specific contexts. The LLM in Environmental Law gives specific emphasis to different regions of the South, including South Asia, China and sub-Saharan Africa.

For further information about the general LLM at SOAS and a list of all the modules, please visit the General LLM description (http://www.soas.ac.uk/law/programmes/llm/llm/).

Visit the website http://www.soas.ac.uk/law/programmes/llm/llmenvlaw/

Duration: One calendar year (full-time)
Two, three or four years (part-time, daytime only)
We recommend that part-time students have between two-and-a-half and three days a week free to pursue their course of study.

Structure

Every student will be required to take modules equivalent to four (4.0) full units. Students who wish to graduate with a specialised LLM are required to take at least three (3.0) of the four (4.0) units within their chosen specialism, including the dissertation. The assessment of one of the chosen full units (within the LLM specialism) will be by means of a 15,000 word dissertation. The fourth unit can be chosen from either the general Law Postgraduate Modules or the following modules associated with the Environmental Law specialisation:
