The modern business environment is increasingly international in scope. The programme equips you with the tools, techniques and concepts to understand how international business is conducted and how firms and countries can thrive in today’s global marketplace.
The International Business and Management with a Foreign Language MSc programme is offered with a foreign language: Russian, Japanese or Arabic. You will take two language modules; one beginner and one post-beginner. Both modules must be taken in the same language.
Our approach is to challenge, inspire and develop your skills to help you operate effectively and responsibly in a truly global business environment. Management (International Business) graduates typically pursue careers in multinational enterprises, international organisations, governmental bodies or consultancies.
