The transfer of theory and practice is not limited by national borders. The international character of the MSc programme in Venlo can be found both in ambiance and content. The multinational formation of students and lecturers alone will arrange for that. Consequently, the whole course of study is in English.

The number of specialisms available will depend on demand and may include*: MBM (Finance) MBM (Operations and Logistics) MBM (Operations and International Supply Chain Systems) MBM (International Business) MBM (Marketing) MBM (Tourism and Hospitality) * Please note that the list of electives which actually run will depend on the level of student demand. If there is very low demand the Plymouth Graduate Business School will not commit to running any given elective(s), and it is possible that a specialism might not run. Finally, you will carry out a project which is a substantial piece of work enabling you to pursue a topic in depth. [-]
