Program Description

MSc International Management

University of Exeter Business School

Our MSc International Management is perfect if you have less than three years’ work experience and are looking to further develop your business knowledge, and launch a dynamic, international business career.

Whilst it is ideal for those who have recently graduated with a business degree, it is also particularly relevant for those from non-business backgrounds looking to add incisive business education to their undergraduate degree.

The core modules on the programme will equip you with the skills, knowledge and insight to help you achieve a successful and sustainable career in business and management anywhere in the world. There is also a wide variety of modules for you to choose from to align your degree to your career aspirations.

Our cohort continues to be truly multinational and you will, therefore, learn first-hand how different cultures approach the same challenges with different perspectives. This international outlook will enhance your learning experience and help you build a network of peers from across the globe.

Learning and teaching

Our postgraduate taught programmes utilise a range of teaching methods including lectures, seminars and tutorials.

Lectures

The aim of lectures is to give you information on ideas that are central to the module and to help you in developing your understanding of complex ideas. Many of the teaching materials for lectures are made available to you electronically to accompany the notes you take during the lecture. Lectures are given by a range of staff members, including leading professors, who integrate their latest research findings into the teaching that you receive. Guest lecturers, including members of industry, also contribute to some modules.

Seminars and tutorials

Seminars and tutorials involve an in-depth exploration of the issues covered in lectures as well as giving you the opportunity to discuss various concepts and theories and receive feedback on your written assignments.

Assessment

Modules are assessed through a mixture of group work, coursework, project work and examinations; the weighting of each of these components will vary according to the academic requirements of the module. Examinations are normally held at the end of the module, in January and May/June.

Careers

Wherever in the world, you plan to work, our Master’s programmes are designed to prepare you for a successful and flexible career. Employers expect advanced communication and technical skills, team-working and independent research, project management and the very latest specialist knowledge from their postgraduate recruits.

An MSc in International Management enables you to develop the professional and global management skills and subject expertise that will make you a valuable asset from day one of your career and set you apart from other MSc International Management graduates in the marketplace. This is a recommended programme for those converting from a first degree from another discipline as well as for those who wish to deepen their knowledge of best practice in global management.
