MSc International Business Economics is designed to develop your knowledge and understanding of International Business (for example transnational production and finance) and gain greater depth of understanding of the broader economic context of the international economy.
This course fits into our Applied Training Programme which is designed to provide training in new and vocationally attractive skills in Economics. It is appropriate either for graduates with no economics background who wish to understand how markets work and to develop the analytical skills of an economist, or for graduates in economics who wish to develop specialist expertise without committing to full research training. This course provides training that places specialist areas in a wider economic context and shows how the insight from economics can improve workplace performance.
You will develop skills in statistical analysis, as well as investigating the motivation, financial practices, and consequences of international business. This degree will allow you to develop skills highly desired by employers, including analytical and business awareness skills in an international context.
The programme should appeal to those who wish to pursue a career in the areas of finance, management or international business.
You will study compulsory modules in economic concepts and methodology, international political economics and the operation of multinational firms.
You will also have the opportunity to take optional modules in finance, environmental economics, economic theory, mathematics and economics and the mass media. For further details of the modules currently on offer, please see the Course Profile tab.
Assessment will be carried out through combinations of coursework and exams. You will also write a dissertation on a topic of your choice, supervised individually by an academic from the School.
