Most companies have to survive in a business environment that is international, rapidly changing and increasingly competitive. Managing and leading such businesses requires a special combination of knowledge and skills – not just strategic thinking but also how to adapt to the different cultures and business practices throughout the world. The programme will develop your current business capabilities and prepare you for positions of responsibility in modern, dynamic organisations, particularly in a global context.
The programme is designed for students who have recently completed an undergraduate degree in business and management and who wish to continue their studies at Masters level. Such students should be aiming to join a company that has substantial global and international interests and receive rapid promotion to senior level. A number of options allow focus in specific areas of interest.
The programme extends the knowledge gained in a relevant undergraduate business management degree, whilst also providing a broader global context. The MSc Global Business Management programme attracts students from all around the world – it is global in both the classroom culture as well as the subjects being studied. To be successful on the programme, you will need enthusiasm, commitment, and a willingness to not only work hard but learn new ways of thinking. We also expect you to show initiative and be able to work independently.
Normally candidates will be expected to have a qualification equivalent to an honours degree (2.2 classification or above) in a business- related discipline.Candidates holding a first degree in a nonbusiness discipline should consider the Master of Business and Management as an alternative.A recognised English qualification such as IELTS (to an overall level of 6.5 with not less than 6.0 in any element) or TOEFL (575 paper-based, 90 internet-based).
