What is the 'Master of International Business Economics and Management' all about?

 The Master in International Business Economics and Management (MIBEM) is a master program for holders of a degree in a non-business economic or management discipline. It prepares for a career in international business through the acquisition of business economic insights, knowledge and management skills.

The curriculum adopts a practical and business-oriented perspective, but still provides a thorough treatment, based in science, of major international business economic and management issues.

As a master of science program, MIBEM relies on insights from scientific research. Its primary purpose is not to prepare graduates for an academic career, but to foster an attitude of autonomous, critical and informed reflection in the search for solutions to concrete business problems. The program instills an international and business- and management oriented mindset in individuals educated in diverse backgrounds.

Students who have direct access, can follow the one-year Master's programme. Those who have no direct access, must first follow the 30 credits preparatory programme from September till January and start the Master's programme in February. They can finish the programme in January of the following academic year.

Is this the right programme for me?

 The ideal prospective student:

  • has obtained an academic bachelor's or master's degree in a non-business economics or management discipline;
  • is eager to broaden his/her horizon by acquiring knowledge of business economics and management;
  • aims to enhance his/her career opportunities by acquiring general management skills and business knowledge;
  • is interested in an international business career;
  • feels that a business-oriented, hands-on, critical, interdisciplinary and problem-based learning approach is something for him;
  • understands that working in a multicultural and multidisciplinary team is an asset.

Objectives

Students with no economics background are first, if necessary, introduced to the basics of economics and management in a 30 ECTS preparatory programme.

After the programme a master:

  • Is able to apply microeconomic and macroeconomic insights when analyzing the international business context.
  • Can analyze, interpret, plan, and evaluate business processes, based on scientific knowledge, and -when relevant- with an explicitly international perspective.
  • Understands and can critically assess how societal and international evolutions affect the business world.
  • Can identify the risks and challenges of doing business in an international environment, and can provide solutions for dealing with them.
  • Possesses managerial and entrepreneurial skills, applied within an international business context, with attention to social and ethical aspects.
  • Is able to work on a project basis in a multidisciplinary team, whether or not internationally established.
  • Can autonomously conceive, plan, execute and communicate a scientifically grounded research project as a beginning practitioner and with an international mindset.
  • Recognizes the importance of lifelong learning and the need for continuing education.

Career perspectives

The MIBEM programme prepares students for management positions in a number of sectors. Obviously, your personal interest and prior education play a major role in your post-graduation path. Our graduates find employment in a broad range of sectors, including purchasing, sales, marketing, production control, planning and budgeting, financial management and ICT. Other graduates go on to a career in banking and insurance, become civil servants, work in one of the European institutions, or set up their own company.

Why Dundee

The MFin International Finance programme benefits from our considerable strength in finance where staff from applied and theoretical finance disciplines have been brought together in the same School.

The MFin International Finance programme is a ‘skills’ based finance degree that contains 8 finance modules and a short focused finance based business report. The structure of the report has been developed following feedback from employers who indicate that they prefer graduates who are able to write concisely, accurately and clearly in a focused report rather than write in the style of a lengthy and less focused dissertation.

The programme begins with a two week foundation programme where students become familiar with a range of concepts in business statistics, economics and finance. The programme helps students to understand how the University operates and how to make the most of the range of student services that are freely available. The foundation programme importantly introduces you to your fellow students who will become a major part of your learning experience at Dundee and will continue to be part of your network of friends and business connections after you graduate.

Off-Campus Learning Events: The programme includes off campus learning events embedded in the modules of some of the modules. These events aim to extend your leaning skills in ways that are directly relevant to the pathway and your personal development. These off campus events are one or two days in length and the cost of the transport, event and any necessary accommodation is covered by the MSc programme. At present there are off campus events embedded in the finance and banking pathways. More off campus events are being arranged and further events are being developed to begin this year.

Urban Experience Event: The MSc programme places considerable importance on ‘team building’ and understanding the role that international and domestic cultural variation plays in the workings of firms, and product and employment markets. These issues are addressed through a unique ‘Urban Experience’ event that helps team building and the development of learning skills. Business themes are also explored in the event.

Distinguished Visitor Series: A feature of the programme is the Distinguished Visitor and Enterprise Gym Lecture Series. Distinguished practitioners in the field are invited to the University to hold seminars highlighting critical aspects of business, finance, banking, management, marketing and human resource management. It offers students a unique opportunity to meet with business leaders and explore current issues with them.

The programme is focused clearly on the applied and theoretical aspects of finance so as to develop you for a career in the finance sector. The inclusion of a shorter finance report allows the programme to expand the opportunity for you to undertake more skills based modules that will improve your career prospects.

In the modern world finance takes an ever increasing role in business, development and the economy. The MFin International Finance programme provides you with the skills and training to play an important role in the finance sector and to develop a career in finance. To achieve this the programme provides you with the right mix of applied and theoretical skills to both understand the issues facing firms and how to deal with these issues.

This course is developed for students who have completed their undergraduate study and are now looking to develop their finance related skills so as to pursue a successful career in the finance sector.

We provide a fresh approach to International Finance that is suitable if you have studied economics, business management or accountancy before or if you are new to the subject. Around half of the students on the programme have a business background while the rest of the students come from a very wide range of non-business backgrounds. The programme has been designed with these students with non-business backgrounds in mind while still challenging students whose first degree has been a business related subject.

What you'll study

- How you will be taught

Teaching focuses on the applied and real world aspects of finance. The programme is delivered mostly within a framework of lectures, workshops and tutorials although other methods of teaching are offered on modules when they aid in understanding and learning.
