International Business and Management - MA


Course Description

Easier communication, more efficient international transportation, the relocation of production and services, and a significant increase in economic migration have made the study of international business and management increasingly relevant.

This course attracts students from every corner of the globe and reflects the main areas of international business. It integrates theoretical knowledge with practical enterprise skills in a global context, and also gives you the chance to develop your knowledge and management skills so that you can pursue a career in multinational companies, overseas trade and international organisations.

Course content

A highlight for many students are the study trips and company visits organised throughout the course which provide an opportunity for networking and extending learning in new environments.

Students on this course also benefit from free access to part of the material on the course reading list.

Option modules

Accredited internship

All students on our full-time business Masters courses can apply to undertake the PG/MBA Internship Programme Reflective Practitioner Module. This is an 8 week unpaid accredited internship, which can be taken in addition to option modules and will help students to gain invaluable work experience. The internships, which are with London-based organisations, take place during the summer period. To apply, students must submit a completed application form and a copy of their updated CV to the Business Experience Team; the team then shortlist from the applications and conduct group meetings with the applicants.

Ultimately it is up to our internship employers to decide whether they would like to interview the candidate(s) and offer him/her an internship. We have received very positive feedback from both postgraduate students and employers and expect that the internship programme will continue to remain popular amongst our students.

Associated careers

Our international courses equip you with the knowledge and management skills to pursue a career in multinational companies, overseas trade and any international organisation in general management. Graduates also work in relevant aspects of the economics of international business, or as international finance specialists. Many graduates return to their countries of origin and are employed in developing international business opportunities, government or NGO institutions. A significant number of students also go on to study for PhDs.
