International Business Masters (MSc)

Course Description

Ranked among the top Masters in Management programmes by the Financial Times.

This degree is designed for those candidates without a first degree or higher qualification in business or management and provides you with a solid foundation in international business theory and practice.

Students are introduced to the key disciplines, providing core knowledge and skills applicable to international business. Semester two covers international management and the business systems of Europe and the Far East, preparing you for a career in the modern business world.

This course gives you the opportunity to study a semester abroad at our China or Malaysia campus to enhance your knowledge of British and Chinese or Malaysian business, culture and society, and associated academic material.

The course culminates with a 20,000 word dissertation on a topic directly related to international business.

266.jpg Studying International Business has been an exciting, challenging and rewarding experience. I did a non-business related undergraduate degree so I wanted to do a Masters that would introduce me to the world of business, as well as enhance my career prospects.

The course touched upon all the key things you need to know and has assured me that I now have a really well rounded view of the business world. The teaching methods have been excellent, involving lots of seminars and in-lecture discussions allowing a better feel for the content, as well as the ability to interact with the diverse group of people on the course. This, as well as the excellent careers service, gave me lots of confidence going into job interviews, which paid off recently as I was offered a position on a management consultancy graduate scheme.

830.jpg One of the big draws of Nottingham is its links with China and the opportunity to study the second semester at the campus in Ningbo. The chance to study and live in China, where I spent four months living alongside Chinese and international students, definitely influenced my decision to go to Nottingham and was a great experience.

For a business student, the opportunity to get to know how the Chinese work is invaluable and is a unique competitive opportunity that the Business School offers.

I feel a lot more confident going out into the world of work having completed this course.
