Multinational corporations need managers and business leaders who have an international outlook and can work across the global economy. International Management is an excellent choice for people who have the desire to work in international business, but don’t have an academic background in business, or the necessary experience of work for a Masters of Business Administration (MBA).
The Sunderland Business School is an excellent place to study for this prestigious qualification. We are a member of The Association of Business Schools, and our research in Business is classed as ‘world leading’ in the latest Research Excellence Framework. In addition, our business courses are best in the North East for course satisfaction, satisfaction with teaching, and satisfaction with feedback, according to the Guardian University Guide 2015. The same guide also found that our business courses have the highest spend per student in the North East.
International Management MA will develop your knowledge in a broad range of global business issues. You will examine international trade, international human resource management, global marketing communications, global corporate strategy, and cross cultural management. Your final piece of work will be a dissertation on an international management topic of your choosing.
In addition to learning from tutors, you will participate in Peer Action Learning Sets (PALS), where you will share practical and academic experiences with other students, and collaborate on problem-solving. Linking theory to real-world challenges is a core component of Sunderland’s approach to teaching. You will also visit UK companies, and learn from the practical business experiences of guest speakers who come to our campus. The networks you develop will become invaluable to you when you graduate and embark on your management career.
