International Business

Today�s economy is global. In a world of integrated markets and multinational business, studying international business is a good way of learning about the contemporary world of business and preparing yourself for employment. This programme covers a wide range of topics and areas of study, and students will be provided with opportunities to develop skills relevant to international management. These skills are put to the test during the Project Management module, where they will be working with the MBA students as project team members for one term, developing a live project with local and international businesses. This is an exciting opportunity for students to put their international business knowledge to the test in a real-world scenario.

Entry requirements

Candidates for entry to the MSc International Business Management programme must normally possess: UK/EU students will be able to enter the programme directly in accordance with University entry requirements for MA/MSc programmes (a first degree achieved at Class 2.2 or above from an approved University or Institution) or possess an equivalent qualification. Additionally, to the qualifications above, non-UK/EU students whose 1st language is not English will be required to achieve IELTS 6 or above with no less than Band 6 in writing skills, or equivalents accepted by the University. Part-time students who are in employment careful counselling will be given so that they understand that this is a pre-experience programme. If you do not meet the stated entry requirements above, the University APEL policy may be utilised for entry to the programme where necessary and appropriate. The programme may use this system to allow entry for post-experience professionals who have been in management for at least 2 years. This is likely to involve the submission of evidence of professional competence (an assignment to the Head of Programme) and an interview as part of the recruitment process.
