What will I study?
The MSc Business with International Management is designed around a set of modules that are common to all the ‘MSc Business with’ programmes. These modules cover general business functions, strategic management and organisational analysis. These will develop your strategic awareness, leadership potential and understanding of the theory and practice of international business. In the second semester you will be given the opportunity to specialise in International Management.
In the final semester you will complete your research and write your dissertation. Every student has a personal research supervisor and will be required to submit an assessed research proposal prior to embarking on the dissertation itself.
From September 2016, if you study the 2 year version of this course, you will have a guaranteed internship included, giving you experience of the workplace environment and a valuable opportunity to put your learning into practice. The internship will take place between your second and final semester, and it may be paid or unpaid. If you choose to study this programme in 1 year rather than 2 years, there will still be an internship opportunity for an additional fee of £595, payable to our internship provider.
How will I be taught and assessed?
Your teaching and learning for the MSc Business with International Management takes place in seminars, lectures, tutorials and workshops. In addition, you will be expected to engage in independent study involving directed and self-directed learning.
Assessments for this course are based on a mix of assignments, presentations and group work.
You will be assigned your own Guidance Tutor who will provide academic and pastoral support and be your first point of contact if you have questions or problems.
