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.
Henley Business School is home to the internationally-renowned John H. Dunning Centre for International Business. The University of Reading has remained at the forefront of teaching and research in this field for more than 45 years. The ICMA Centre is one of the leading providers of finance programmes in Europe.
+ up to 2 optional modules spanning areas including: corporate finance;
international securities markets; financial regulation and regulatory policy;
history of finance.
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.
