The Course

The MSc International Business programme at Lincoln is designed to equip you with the necessary qualities and subject knowledge that will enable you to compete effectively in the domestic and international labour markets. You will have the chance to develop a firm grounding in the theories and practice of international business in order to make contributions to the performance of organisations of all types around the world.

The programme offers a high level of support for international students. There are integrated approaches to support in English language, orientation to studying in the UK and to postgraduate study skills, the development of enterprising and employable career capabilities, and pastoral support. Close engagement with the International Office, English Language Centre, Student Services, Careers, Library and other central services is an essential feature of this support.

Business graduates may use this programme to examine the subject area in more depth, while others can combine their existing knowledge and skills with international business theory.

How You Study

The programme will expect students to read extensively and be aware of current theoretical debates within the literature, including relevant journals.

Lectures are used primarily in discipline-bound areas. Lecture materials may be enhanced by audiovisual material in the early stages of the course, to provide extra aid to overseas students facing an unfamiliar learning environment. Classes will be interwoven with discussions and debating opportunities regarding the rapidly and often spontaneous changes in international business.

Seminars offer opportunities for student-centred learning and a range of face-to-face, tutor-supported formats. These may be delivered by chat rooms, internet or video conferencing, physical face-to-face classes or other suitable synchronous or asynchronous multimedia methods.

MSc International Business requires you to study six core modules which are designed to develop your understanding of international business, the development of communication skills as well as a range of essential graduate attributes. You then select two optional modules based on your academic interests and career aspirations. The degree concludes with a dissertation. The dissertation is designed to encourage innovation and diverse pathways to the final assessed product. In this respect, the dissertation is an extended project that can accommodate a range of independent work.
