  • Objectives
    Our International Business programme is designed for graduates who wish to develop a thorough understanding of key issues in international business and management, with a particular focus on how firms might internationalise and develop effective international business strategies to address business threats and opportunities on the international market. The programme draws on the strong expertise of Birkbeck’s International Business and Strategy research group, a leading centre in London for research, training and policy advice on foreign direct investment and knowledge diffusion, globalisation of innovative activities, comparative business systems and management, international human resource management and international business strategy. The research group organises regular seminars and publishes major books and academic papers in the world’s leading journals within its field of interest. The programme combines specialist taught courses with general training in management, business organisation, strategy and research methods. Students also complete a dissertation on a topic covered by the programme, supervised by a member of staff undertaking research within that area. Students completing the programme will develop knowledge, skills, and the competency to be able to analyse critical issues in international business with both qualitative and quantitative methods, and to design and implement international business strategy and policy development. The programme will be particularly relevant if you are, or would like to be, a manager with responsibility for international business and policy affairs in either a private or public sector organisation; or if you have a general interest in international business.
