Program Description

MSc European and International Business Management

University of Bradford School of Management

Our MSc Management programmes are rated amongst the best in the world, ranked Top 10 in the UK and Top 60 worldwide (Financial Times, 2014). By choosing Bradford you’ll also benefit from studying at a triple accredited (Equis, AMBA and AACSB) business school that’s rated by the Financial Times as one of Europe’s Top 60 Schools.

The MSc in European and International Business Management, often referred to as the European Management Programme or EMP, is designed for students who wish to develop a truly international perspective on management, by sharing the experience of living and studying in three different European countries.

We offer the European Management Programme as part of our partnership with two other centres of excellence the Universidad de Deusto - Deusto Business School, Bilbao and AUDENCIA, Nantes, Ecole de Management in France. The course takes place in three countries, in three prestigious European institutions, and is taught in three languages: Spanish, French and English.

You spend your first term in Spain or France, your second in France or Spain, and your third at the School of Management in Bradford, UK. The course includes some language tuition, but you must be competent in at least two of the three languages used and have the ability to become proficient in the third. You spend the final 12 weeks of the course on work placement or writing a report.

The European Management Programme is a joint award of the three Institutions (Universidad de Deusto, Audencia, and University of Bradford). The Master's awarded is officially recognised by the Ministerio de Educación in Spain.
