Management and International Business

Overview

Add managerial knowledge and capabilities to your skillset to equip you for leadership roles in whatever career you decide to forge.

You will learn the broad principles of business management that will make you employable in the public, private and charitable sectors. With a particular focus on international business, you will develop a global outlook and gain an understanding of how larger organisations with an international presence compete successfully across a range of cultures and economic environments.

Modules have been carefully designed in partnership with industry experts to ensure the content and philosophy behind each subject blends contemporary theory and practice and will provide you with the knowledge and skills required to work for organisations who operate in a multinational context.

This course is ideal for ambitious graduates of any subject who want to develop their managerial prospects, and, in particular, want to work for international organisations.

Your tutors' expertise spans theory and practice, with academic staff who are Fellows of the Higher Education Academy and industry professionals qualified to chartered status in their respective fields.

Your teaching will involve a mixture of lectures, small seminars and tutorials, and will include a guest lecture programme designed to inspire you and provide you with networking opportunities with potential employers.

We are committed to offering hands-on learning and have a purpose-built business simulation suite where your growing analytical and decision-making skills will be put to the test. Mimicking facilities used to train the emergency services to co-ordinate responses to real-time crises, you will be presented with a range of business critical challenges and situations. You will work in small teams to devise response strategies, using real time business information to formulate your approach. A trained facilitator will help you evaluate and improve your analytical and decision making abilities.

You can choose between a dissertation or a live consultancy project with one of the Faculty's partner organisations and you will negotiate the detail and scope. On completion you will present your research to your client and academic supervisor.

“After leaving the army I worked as a technician for a civilian company. Over time I knew I wanted more from my career and to move into management. My masters allowed me to interact with fellow students and lecturers, giving me an insight into the different ways people approach tasks - something which is invaluable in my current role as project manager.
