If you are a graduate looking for your first managerial position, then the MSc in International Business and Management is the stepping stone you need. It will give you a thorough grounding in all the most important management disciplines, and is targeted specifically at people who have limited work experience and who might not have studied business before. However, it is goes beyond the business fundamentals, to look at cutting edge research in areas like innovation, entrepreneurship, corporate sustainability, supply chain management, leadership, change management and strategy. You will gain a deep understanding of current issues in the international business environment, and their impact on companies and their strategies. The MScIBM is ideal, not just for aspiring managers, but also if you want to go on to a research degree in business or management.

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.
