Grounded in current management science, this Masters programme provides a critical and ambitious specialisation in the field of international management. You will develop cognitive and ethical reasoning skills through a dynamic learning environment that involves debates, class conversations and strong individual and interpersonal interaction.
Distinctive in its international approach, MSc International Management places an emphasis on a systems view of the firm. You will gain an understanding of some of the complexities of leading and managing culturally diverse teams, and the influence of stakeholders in the 21st century international business environment. You will also develop a deep understanding of the critical importance of human agents (executive, stakeholder, employee, customer and citizen) and examine the balance between people and process driven elements in an organisation, and the relationship between the human agent and functional aspects (strategy, financial management, marketing, entrepreneurship).
Core modules provide a critical understanding of contemporary strategic management, corporate responsibility, the management of people and organisational behaviour. In addition you will assess the ethical complexities involved in managing global organisations, and the factors involved in responsible decision making (both in business and in society). You will be encouraged to critically evaluate existing theories, models and practices and use your knowledge and abilities to assess real-life situations and challenges. A distinctive emphasis is placed on grappling with how ethical perspectives and short-term, narrower economic objectives in decision making regarding the firm's performance and its stakeholder management practices interact.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Per 6 April 2015 only the English language tests from IELTS and Trinity College London are accepted for Tier 4 Visa applications to the United Kingdom. Other tests (including TOEFL, TOEIC, Pearson, City & Guilds) are no longer accepted for Tier 4 visa applications to the United Kingdom. The university might still accept these tests to admit you to the university, but if you require a Tier 4 visa to enter the UK and begin your degree programme, these tests will not be sufficient to obtain your Visa. Since the Trinity College London language tests must be taken in one of their exam centres in the UK, IELTS is now the only language test accepted for Tier 4 visas to the UK that can be taken worldwide.
You are expected to have obtained a UK upper second class honours degree, or the international equivalent. Students whose first language is not English are required to provide evidence of proficiency.
No work experience is required.
