General

Program Description

MSc Course overview

As we enter a period of dramatic economic and political change, there has never been a more exciting time to study international business. Today’s businesses operate in a dynamic global business environment in which managers have to deal with rapidly changing markets and a climate of tremendous uncertainty. These challenges call for new skills and new thinking as businesses strive to reinvent and innovate.

The course focus is very much on developing you as you acquire the skills and attributes necessary for the leaders, entrepreneurs and policymakers of tomorrow in management, strategy and decision making and communication. You can choose to specialise in either marketing or finance to focus your MSc on your chosen career path.

The course is for graduates from any background/discipline who wish to pursue further study at Master’s level. You may have completed an undergraduate Arts or Social Science degree, and now would like to gain a qualification in International Business. You may also have completed a business or management undergraduate degree and wish to pursue further Master’s level study.
