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.
