Course content

On the MSc International Management course you will develop an understanding of a range of global businesses, their operations and the cultural differences of international management. You will study the various business functions, such as marketing, finance and strategy, taking in to account global environmental factors (economic, political and social) in which international organisations operate.

You will learn about a range of international organisations and develop your general management skills and intercultural management skills. You will gain practical experience by working on a live consultancy project for a commercial or not-for-profit organisation and have the opportunity to take part in field trips to study organisations in other countries.
