Open to applicants with a degree in any discipline, this programme will equip you with the skills and management knowledge required of today’s managers. It offers a choice of two pathways – MA in Business Management or MA in International Business Management – and builds on the theory and practical application of key business functions to help you develop a sound understanding of the field of global business. Strategic and operational perspectives are addressed, with an emphasis on the practical skills essential for the modern international business manager.
What will you study?
After an induction programme introducing you to the Business School and the expectations and ethos of the course, you will go on to study the underpinning elements of business management from a national and international context. The business-related areas comprise information management, operations management, marketing, financial resources management, and the management of people and organisations. These areas will be covered in depth to include areas of consultancy, analysis and research skills.
The second stage of the course includes core work on strategy and research together with a wide range of options covering international business areas and a practical consultancy project. This gives you the opportunity to work for an external client organisation for a period of five to six weeks, enabling you to put your business knowledge and skills into practice with a real company. In addition, your dissertation enables you to research a specific area of interest in depth.
