The course offers a number of students the opportunity to spend a semester of their course at one or two of our collaborative institutions in France, Spain and Poland.

In the second stage of the MSc in International Business and Management, a small number of students have the opportunity to participate in a six month student exchange programme at one or two of our partner business schools (in Lyon in France, Warsaw in Poland, Barcelona in Spain or Nantes in France.
