Managing Global Business MSc


Course Description

We designed this course for students with a non-business degree who wish to develop the knowledge and skills needed to begin or re-focus a career in international business and management.

Globalising markets are reshaping the way organisations are configured and the way that they conduct international business.

Global competitiveness has become a major concern for organisations that increasingly need new knowledge and more specialised skills.

You develop your knowledge of global business and the main areas involved in business management. This includes understanding the global business environment and the company responses to this. You also examine the impact of risk on global companies.

You develop your understanding of the operational and strategic issues facing global businesses and the international management skills needed to evaluate global market opportunities. To help you to develop your practical skills in a real world setting, we offer work related activities that may include • business simulations • an international consultancy project • visits to companies and organisations • guest speakers.

Your dissertation, which is a major project, is usually on an issue of strategic importance geared to your interest. It is your chance to demonstrate your research and project management skills to employers.
