Course content

The MSc International Management is a catalyst degree programme – designed to boost you in a career in business and management by providing you with all the skills, knowledge and insight necessary to succeed anywhere in the world. Whilst it is ideal for those already with a business degree, the programme is particularly relevant for those from non-business related backgrounds looking to add incisive business education to their undergraduate degree.

The programme focuses on your career in business and management. From day one, you will be encouraged to think strategically about your vocation - with our three-day Careers Camp in Induction Week specifically designed to help you to think about your aspirations. With a dedicated careers support team, careers coaches and career-focused events, corporate speakers and links with the business world, we are best-placed to launch your successful professional career.

Accredited by the Chartered Management Institute, every successful graduate on the programme will automatically receive a second professional qualification – the Diploma in Strategic Management and Leadership. Alongside your University Masters degree, this means that you will stand out from the competition when it comes to employability, as well as gaining entry to exclusive CMI networking events and access to the CMI’s employability and library resources.

Throughout your time with us you will be working with students from all over the globe - learning first-hand how different cultures can approach the same challenge from different perspectives, with each bringing their own unique expertise to the issue. This international experience will enhance your personal learning and, in time, your peers will form part of your future network, enabling you to secure contacts across the globe.

We’re committed to ensuring all of our students gain a truly international perspective while studying with us. With that in mind we offer students on our 12 month programme the opportunity to spend a semester abroad at one of our partner institutions:

  • Mannheim Business School (Germany)
  • Copenhagen Business School (Denmark)
  • SDA Bocconi School of Management (Italy)
  • HEC Lausanne (Switzerland)

Whatever options you choose, we will ensure you will leave the programme with a new found confidence and expertise in international management that will enable you to build a successful and sustainable career for the future.

International students should be aware that they will require a separate visa to enable them to study at a partner institution in another country.
