Anam Irfan

703.jpg Being a contemporary course, International Management is structured in a way that helps enlighten you about various management concepts while simultaneously adopting a practical approach with the help of case studies, group work and presentations.

So far, I have learnt to critically examine the theories of strategic management and understand how they correspond to the international context. I have also learnt about the critical issues facing an organization, such as coping with their international environment and the task of managing people effectively. I have understood in much greater depth, the various corporate governance systems of different countries and how to comparatively analyze each country's system. On a more global scale, I have been taught to recognise and examine the complexity of issues that firms face today by operating in a global environment, by effectively using various frameworks.

I have thoroughly enjoyed the interactive environment in class, which makes this course even more challenging and interesting. Furthermore, the manner in which professors approach this course, by not just lecturing, but also opening the room for discussion of various case studies, important events or showing visuals relevant to the subject, makes the programme truly fascinating. In addition, the amount of group work demanded by this course provides hands-on experience of working effectively with peers from different cultures.

704.jpg The programme includes a good general introduction to several key topics - the global business environment, strategy and management. However, one aspect of the course that I was not expecting was the heavy focus on group work which helped me to develop my communication and team skills in a culturally diverse environment. I feel that this was the most important lesson of the first semester, and one that will be without a doubt useful in my future career.

I have enjoyed making new friends during the first few weeks of the programme and I like the general atmosphere of the course - the group assignments started early in the semester and made the whole class work well both on formal and informal levels. Furthermore, I liked the fact that, while the individual courses had clear-cut objectives, certain topics were covered by several course units, giving me different perspectives and contributing to my general understanding
of business concepts.

Bath is a nice city, small enough to walk around but sufficiently large to have enough interesting architecture as well as pubs and bars. Should you get tired of Bath at any point, there are enough other cities easily reachable by train. From my experience, the University accommodation is good and the University staff are approachable and helpful.

Nic Kunakorn Kitcharoen

705.jpg Once I had decided to undertake a master’s degree in the international business area, I looked at some of the best business school in the UK; it become clear that Bath is the best Business School in the UK offering this type of programme (Oxford, Cambridge and Imperial don’t). In the Times Good University Guide 2010 Bath is ranked number 4 in the business studies category.

I have already learned a great deal from studying the Bath MSc in International Management. Not only in terms of the intense academic learning, but I have also developed new friendships, experienced new cultures and been part of a very friendly environment helping me improve my own personal development.

I have enjoyed a great number of things. I particularly enjoy the course content and the friendly environment not only from my classmates, but also our lecturers and the School of Management staff.

Bath is small and warm, safe, and full of hospitality. The University has a lot of good facilities that facilitate learning, the lecturers are kind and helpful and all of the staff encourage students to learn more effectively.
