Our MSc in Management (International Business) is taught full-time over two semesters followed by a dissertation, through a combination of lectures, seminars, case studies, group work for collaborative learning and web-based discussion groups. Students are assessed through individual assignments, group projects, examinations and their dissertation.
You also have the option to undertake an organisational project, giving you real-world work experience within a company.
The course begins in September and lasts over a full 12 months. Students who successfully complete the first semester but do not proceed receive the PG Certificate. Those who pass both semesters but do not complete the dissertation receive the PG Diploma.
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.
No work experience is required.
Students completing the MSc Management (International Business) also qualify for the Chartered Management Institute (CMI) Advanced Diploma in Management, which means you can work towards the Chartered Manager qualification conferred by the CMI.
Together with the ISIC Association and British Council IELTS we offer you the chance to receive up to £10,000 to expand your horizon and study abroad. We want to ultimately encourage you to study abroad in order to experience and explore new countries, cultures and languages.
University guides confirm our position as one of the UK's leading universities. The Virgin 2008 Alternative Guide to British Universities, for instance, says that “Sheffield is a top university across the board”.
