The International Business Management MSc course will give you a systematic understanding of business organisations, their external environment and on how they create value sustainably. The degree programme focus is on providing knowledge for practical use, allowing you to develop business management skills that will enhance your career. Guided by our staff, you'll learn about both the theory and the practice of business management.
The key aim of the course is to develop the decision making and interpersonal skills that are essential for a successful career in business and management. As part of the degree, you will have access to an individual leadership assessment and feedback software. This software will help identify your strengths, and provide you with an opportunity for personal and professional growth.
The business simulation used will help bring business to life in the classroom. Competing in groups with other students, you will experiment with business strategies, test business ideas and experience the consequences of your actions in a virtual simulated business environment. The simulation will help you understand how teams work together to make decisions, manage risk and beat the competition.
Whilst not essential, any experiences of business, for example as employees, customers or managers will contribute in building and applying business concepts. We focus your learning on the practical understanding of the global world of business, providing a rich environment where international experience and practice is shared. You'll have the opportunity to develop presentation, critical thinking, negotiation and problem solving skills, all of which are desirable in successful employees in the world of global business.
Businesses make an extraordinary contribution to solving problems that we all face. They meet many of our needs efficiently and effectively, delivering innovation and improvement on a daily basis. They also provide great opportunity to grow and learn for those that pursue the dream of starting a business or of working for an international company. We expect our graduates to be high performing business managers who understand the vital need for sustainable growth, the importance of equality of opportunity and the value in diversity.
Assessment will come in various forms, including individual coursework, group work reflective statements, presentations, peer assessments, essays, portfolios and videos.
