Our graduates work in small firms or in large multinational firms with offices throughout the world.

The MSc International Business programme has six pathways:

Aims of the Programme:

To provide motivated students with the tools and skills necessary to pursue a successful and rewarding career in International Business, Corporate Governance, Finance, Marketing and Human Resource Management.


The degrees are taught full-time for a period of twelve months, starting in September and January each year.

The common elements of all pathways are:

- International Business Induction an intensive first two weeks which includes a selection of key concepts and tools in microeconomics, macroeconomics and statistics, plus there is also an opportunity for you to settle in and familiarise yourself with the campus and the city, and discover the rich facilities of both

- International Trade and Investment which identifies the major trends in the global economy and the implications for international specialisation in terms of the geographic location of industries and firms

Methods of Teaching and Assessment:

The Induction module is taught intensively in the first 2 weeks of the degree programme, and thereafter the core and optional modules are taught throughout the year of study.

A feature of the programme is the Distinguished Visitor and Enterprise Gym Lecture Series. Distinguished practitioners in the field are invited to the University to hold seminars highlighting critical aspects of Business Finance and Marketing. It offers students a unique opportunity to meet with business leaders.

All modules (including the Induction programme) are assessed by coursework (including oral presentations) and final examination. Coursework may account for as much as 40% of the overall degree.

After arrival, students may be able to swap to a different pathway after discussion with their course advisor.
