International Business MSc


Course Description

Business today is global. No company can be confident of surviving unless it appreciates this fact and understands its implications.

For graduates wishing to develop a career in international business, the opportunities span a wide range of possibilities. Multinational corporations are very short of managers from countries other than their domestic base, who have the understanding to operate comfortably in different countries.

Small and medium-sized firms with strong niche positions are also increasingly looking for talented and well-trained staff to help them undertake international expansion. In major emerging economies such as Brazil, China and India, successful domestic firms are poised to become multinational through expanding overseas. They too welcome graduates with the appropriate knowledge about doing business internationally.

The programme, run by the International Management and Strategy Group, draws on the talents of internationally respected scholars and highly respected teachers. Their expertise covers globalisation, the international aspects of accounting and finance, corporate governance, human resource management, marketing, organisation of multinational corporations, operations and procurement, and strategy. Regional specialists with expertise on Africa, China, Europe and Latin America also teach on the programme.

The MSc International Business has been accredited by the Association of MBAs (AMBA). The accreditation, aimed at Pre-Experience Masters in General Management (PEMM), takes into account criteria such as the breadth of the syllabus, the quality of teaching staff, careers support available and the inclusion of a research dissertation. This accreditation aims to safeguard standards of excellence and ensure clarity about the purpose of various general management qualifications in an increasingly competitive market.
