The MSc International Business and Management is designed for new or recent graduates and those with management experience.
This programme goes beyond just providing students with a thorough grounding in vital business and management practices and the contexts in which they operate. The course philosophy focuses on the role of modern business and management and the varied and sometimes complex mixture of knowledge and skills that drive the revenue streams of those modern entities.
Modern businesses have become more diverse. The balance of power has shifted significantly in favour of the customer, who now has more control of the relationship than ever before, and technology has brought in new media channels and cultural norms. The role of business and management has altered, so too has the scope and role of management which is changing in response.
This course delivers the core essentials for a career in business and management by allowing students to rehearse the necessary skills and techniques required in the profession, and doing so at the intellectual and deep level of a Masters programme. Students taking this course will be able to significantly enhance their career and promotion prospects.
Designed for new or recent graduates so the course is to bring graduates of any discipline to become well-versed in business and management-related matters and competent to work (and lead) in a challenging business environment
Gives a broad perspective on the nature of business and management.
