We are not accepting applications for the MBA International Business programme.

The MBA International Business has been designed to make graduates eminently employable in almost any industry.

This programme covers all aspects of conducting business globally, with a focus on three key themes: strategy, ethics and internationalism.

The course is highly practical as well as academic, providing graduates with both the necessary tools and theoretical underpinning for success in any business situation.

The programme offers theoretical understanding and a critical awareness of the major strategic challenges facing contemporary global business.

The international focus throughout is underpinned by an integral period spent studying at one of our partner institutions abroad.

A unique feature of the MBA programme is the mentoring scheme.

Why should I choose this programme?

The MBA programme instils the skills, knowledge and attributes essential to develop as an effective and successful international business leader.

Key skills, aims and objectives

You will learn to apply knowledge, analytical and research skills to improving business and management practice, and contribute to strategic and functional areas in all types of organisations.

The course will enable you to show leadership and creativity when faced with complex problems and be able to plan and implement tasks at a senior management level.

Future opportunities

Graduates of the programme can expect to find employment in any number of industries and professional organisations, ranging from multinational companies to small and medium-sized enterprises. Consultancy and banking will be open to you, as will careers in marketing and retailing, or starting your own business.

There are two entry points a year in January and September. If you begin your studies in September, it will take approximately 12 months; if you start in January, it will take approximately 16 months.

Additional information

This is a full-time programme, covering three semesters.

The programme is composed of modules, each of which carries a specific credit value.

You will complete nine core (mandatory) modules, plus two modules of your choice (elective modules) during your period of study abroad and a business project.

Study Abroad

The international focus of the MBA programme is underpinned by the 4-10 week period of study abroad that you will undertake during the summer semester. You will choose two elective modules from your host institutions’ MBA course offerings to study during this period.
Our partner institutions have been selected for their international standing, the reputation of their MBA programmes and their course compatibility.

Mentoring Scheme

Each student on the MBA programme is paired with an experienced professional for the duration of the course. Each mentoring relationship is unique and allows you to draw on the professional and life experiences of your mentor to develop your own skills, ideas and self-reliance. Mentors are recruited from our extensive network of Regent's College alumni and business relations contacts.
