The MSc in International Management aims to provide students with broad knowledge and understanding of the practices and processes of international management. It also seeks to furnish graduates with the knowledge and skills required to operate across a range of business functions and organisational settings, both globally and in specific national environments.
With strong conceptual underpinnings, the programme is nevertheless practical in its orientation, emphasising the skills of working, managing and leading in various organisational settings.
The MSc in International Management will develop students’ understanding of the national and global contexts in which international managers operate, and provide an appreciation of how those contexts have an impact on managerial expectations and preferences in different cultural environments. The programme will provide an understanding of how the national and global contexts – economic, socio-cultural and institutional – pose strategic opportunities and challenges to internationally-active managers from both large and small firms, and how those contexts impact on critical organisational functions such as marketing, human resource management and financial management.
The programme will also provide the following:
The MSc in International Management consists of three core International Management modules (Global Business Environment, Managing Across Cultures, Strategy and Organisation Across Borders), four function-orientated modules (International Human Resource Management, International Marketing, Introduction to International Finance and Management, International Entrepreneurship), two electives, and a practically-orientated end-of-programme project. These modules are complemented by International Manager Development Programme.
Combined, these modules provide students with broad knowledge and understanding of the practices and processes of international management, and skills required to operate globally across a range of business functions and organisational settings.
Textbooks are supplied to programme participants for all core modules, with the exception of Developing a Business Plan and Doing Business Abroad, for which there is no appropriate text.
The Andersonian Library has an extensive collection of books which have been acquired specifically for the programme. Programme participants will also have access to the resources of the Business Information Service (BIS). This service is exclusively available to students of the Department of Management and is an invaluable resource for the production of business plans, report and other assignments.
