International Business

This programme seeks to meet the buoyant labour market demand for more postgraduates in the field of international business. This programme is designed for people who wish to develop a critical research-based knowledge and expertise of a broad range of key issues in international business and management at postgraduate level while also enabling a focus on specific areas of study according to personal interests or career requirements. These areas include economics and finance, marketing, employment relations and human resource management, business ethics, globalisation and development. The distinctiveness of this programme draws from the way it presents the multi-disciplinary context of the academic domain of international business and the way it promotes an interdisciplinary connection with cognate fields such as management, business, economics and organisation studies. The programme facilitates the attainment of a broad range of subject-specific, intellectual, practical and personal and social learning outcomes. Students completing the programme have the knowledge, skills and competencies to analyse critical issues in international business with qualitative and quantitative methods, and to design and implement international business strategy and policy development. It is particularly relevant if you are, or would like to be, a manager with responsibility for international business and policy affairs in a private or public sector organisation.
