Designed to be a vibrant and innovative course that focuses on best practice in management and leadership while developing an international focus, there is a practical project instead of a dissertation.

The MSc International Management and Leadership at the Queen Margaret University is designed to be a vibrant and innovative course that focuses on best practice in management and leadership while developing an international focus. It covers contemporary management practice and also community engagement and service. In a fast changing, global economy, the MSc will equip you to assess the wider interconnections between organisations and their local, national and international contexts. You will build up a solid understanding of key management practice and develop your critical insight.

As part of a smaller cohort of students, the academic team is able to get to know and support you as an individual. You will also form a close knit group with your classmates who will come from a wide range of backgrounds and countries. You will be able to share experiences and learn from each other.
- The variety of teaching, learning and assessment methods used are designed to enhance the student experience and are unlike most offered by many other universities.
