Learn about international business
All organisations need effective leadership, and managers who can demonstrate an awareness of global business issues will always be sought after by employers. The MSc in International Management will give you the expertise and knowledge as well as the analytical and research skills needed to perform a managerial role in an international organisation. There is also a comprehensive personal development programme within this degree to enable you to develop a range of self management skills. It is a course that attracts talented students from around the world, and the chance to work and learn in such a strong multicultural environment is ideal preparation for working in international organisations. The degree is a one year, full-time programme with two start dates - September and January.

The dissertation is an ideal opportunity to specialise in an area of your choosing and research the topic in-depth. Ideally, this will be in an area designed to open up attractive employment opportunities. We'll give you the training guidance and support needed to help you complete a significant piece of international management research, either practical or theoretical. The dissertation, which you will complete during the summer term, is considered a hugely important part of the Master's programme.
Putting it into practice
This programme also offers you the valuable opportunity to spend some time on a work placement in industry. This is great chance to put some of the theory you have learnt into practice, enhance your CV and gain some valuable work experience. This work placement will normally be during the dissertation phase of the programme and could last from a few months to a more substantial time period depending on your visa circumstances. As organisations are selective, the placement opportunities are competitive so we cannot guarantee that you will get a placement, but we will give you every assistance through our dedicated Placements Office who work closely with the business community and are experienced in supporting students in finding work placements in the UK.
Teaching and learning
You'll be studying in a dynamic and innovative teaching and learning environment. Most of the formal learning takes place through weekly seminars in which there is a high degree of student participation. Learning continues outside of formal classes with case study preparation, background reading and research, either individually or within a team.
Assessment is mostly through written coursework, such as essays, reports, mini-projects, or case-study analysis.
