International commerce is a part of everyday life in today’s business world but few individuals are specifically prepared to lead the growth in international management. The PgDip/MSc in International Business offers an ideal opportunity for progressive employees in a supervisory / managerial position within an international organisation or entrepreneurs, to further develop their career. This programme will enable students to acquire a mastery of the political, economic and cultural aspects of different trade blocs, particularly the European Union, Asia and the North America. Mastery of the international business domain will include the ability to integrate and extend knowledge to contexts outside the developed materials, and to effectively translate theory into practice. It is designed to provide a coherent academic progression for students who will explore the overall environment in which international business takes place before focusing on management issues in international firms.
The programme is aimed at students who are currently in junior to middle management within large corporations with the view that they will develop the necessary skills and knowledge to advance to senior management positions in international companies. Additionally, the programme is open to students who have not yet aggregated extensive practical work experience, but have aspirations to secure senior management positions.
