Program description

MSc International Business

We are here to help you prepare for a flourishing career in global business and offer you the option to specialise in International Business and Marketing or International Business and Entrepreneurship.

Throughout this Masters in International Business, you’ll develop problem-solving and critical-thinking skills within the context of trading across national boundaries. By the end of the course, you’ll have an expansive knowledge of how organisations operate across economies, currencies and regulatory frameworks. You’ll also become an expert in engaging with stakeholders from different cultures and working effectively with a multi-location team.

If you want to start your own venture, to develop entrepreneurial capacity in an existing organisation or to work in an international marketing function one of our optional pathways will target your skills.

The course covers core business subjects, such as accounting, people management and strategy, in the context of international regulatory frameworks and business practices. It also emphasises ethical, environmental and sustainability issues, which are increasingly important within the global business environment.
