A Master’s degree in international business will make you a valuable asset in both large and small companies in an interconnected business world.
About the course
At the end of the programme you will be a different person; better able to cope with change, more sensitive towards cultural differences, more capable of operating in a fast-moving, international environment, and more able to see opportunities where others only see threats. You will have a unique combination of skills that employers will value and a network of contacts around the world.
You will benefit from our international expertise, connections, and our excellent business links. You will study alongside students from all over the world, gaining direct experience of other cultures.
Visiting professors from international universities, the diverse cultural mix of students, and proximity to London - a global business centre – all make us the ideal location to study international business.
The programme is intended for those with a business related degree (although, if you have the motivation, it can be used to convert from another discipline to business).
The MSc International Business is also taught in Canada at Vancouver Island University as part of a combined MBA/MScIB programme.
