MSc International Management (China)

Course Description

This programme focuses on management and its environment in China and includes high-level courses in international management and finance disciplines. It draws upon China experts and management specialists within the University and from positions within commerce, finance and government. The core modules enable you to study the principles and applications of international management and the interplay between global and local factors influencing management in China. You can use the elective modules to focus on either management skills that can be applied worldwide or specialise in understanding the Chinese business environment. The programme combines the study of China with close attention to the business worlds of Hong Kong and Taiwan. For those who choose to, this programme also offers the opportunity to learn Chinese - either at an introductory level or at an advanced level for business purposes. No knowledge of Chinese is required to complete the MSc programme successfully, since English language materials are used.

The MSc International Management for China has three components:

1. Four core courses
2. Elective course(s) to the value of 1.0 unit
3. Dissertation of 10,000 words on an approved topic

Elective courses are divided into Chinese Managerial Environment and General Management electives. Students are encouraged to combine courses from both in order to build an understanding of the local business and cultural environment.

The 10,000-word dissertation is worth 25% of your final mark. During term 2 you will submit your dissertation proposal and select an academic supervisor. Over the ensuing months you should meet with your supervisor at least three times before the end of term 3 for guidance. The bulk of your dissertation will be written over the summer to meet the mid-September deadline.

Not all elective courses are offered every year; please check your preferences with the Programme Convenor. Also note that if half units are selected, one term 1 course and one term 2 course needs to be chosen across Regional and General electives.

- Part-time Study

Part-time students are required to complete three of the core courses during their first year, then one core and two elective courses plus the dissertation during the second year.

Those enrolled on the three-year programme are required to complete three of the core courses during their first year, one core and two elective courses in the second year, and the dissertation in the third year.
