Birmingham Business School has been delivering management education in Singapore since 1994, when its MBA programme was originally launched. The MSc Management (with Specialist Pathways) extends these activities in Singapore and is delivered in conjunction with our partners, the Singapore Institute of Management (SIM).
We use fundamentally the same syllabus as taught on the Management MSc programme in the UK and the same team of Business School academic staff travels to Singapore in order to deliver all of the modules.
For graduates wishing to develop a career in international business, a wide range of opportunities exists. The programme draws on the talents of internationally respected scholars and highly respected teachers whose expertise covers globalisation, the international aspects of strategic management, accounting and finance, corporate governance, e-commerce, global talent management, marketing, organisation of multinational corporations, operations and procurement and cross cultural communication.

Business today is global and no company can be confident of surviving unless it appreciates this fact and understands its implications.
Multinational corporations are very short of managers from countries other than their domestic base, who have the understanding to operate comfortably in different countries.
Small and medium-sized firms with strong niche positions are also increasingly looking for talented and well-trained staff to help them undertake international expansion. In major emerging economies such as Brazil, China and India, successful domestic firms are poised to become multinational through expanding overseas. They too welcome graduates with the appropriate knowledge about doing business internationally.
For non business graduates please also see our MSc International Business programme.
The programme is structured into three components; six core foundation subjects (60 credits), one of four specialist pathways (60 credits), and a dissertation (60 credits). The MSc Management programme is assessed by individual coursework, group coursework, and examinations.
Coursework can take the form of short essays, extended essays, reports and presentations, through which students demonstrate their knowledge and understanding.
Taught modules contribute two thirds of the overall degree (120 credits). The final assessment is the 60 credit dissertation (10,000 – 12,000 words), where students conduct their own research aligned to their pathway under the guidance of a supervisor.
The Business School enjoys active and close links with industry and the financial community. Many of our programmes have input from organisations such as GE, Biersdorf and Accenture.
Careers in Business is a dedicated service for postgraduate Business School students. Staff will offer support to you, specifically in terms of career guidance and reviewing your CV. There is also day long career event as part of the programme with one to one mentoring available after that.
