This multidisciplinary Masters programme, offered jointly with Henley Business School's ICMA Centre, will provide you with an in-depth understanding of the interrelationships between areas of finance and the global economy.
MSc International Business and Finance examines key issues from both a business and economic perspective, including how financial markets can be leveraged by multinational corporations seeking to exploit international business opportunities, the management challenges presented, and the relevance of these to financial and capital markets.
You will gain a comprehensive understanding of the international business environment, in terms of the competitive and investment climate, which is largely determined by the policies and regulations established by governments and supranational institutions. You will utilise frameworks and methodologies to make sense of the interaction between firm strategies, economic policies and the changing international environment. These global strategies are constantly in flux as these environments rapidly evolve in a globalising world.
