You will build your knowledge and perspectives of international business and improve your confidence in using analytical skills including qualitative and quantitative methods. You will also develop depth of understanding across issues related to global economic coordination and governance as well as reflect upon some of the central debates in international business, such as those around intellectual property, labour issues and sustainability.
You will explore topics such as strategic management and entering foreign markets. At the same time, you will build research skills and learn about the different methodologies used to research international business.
Throughout the year you will undertake compulsory modules which develop your professional skills for the workplace and prepare you for the challenges of managing organisations and individuals across different cultural contexts. You will also select optional modules on topics that suit your interests or career plans, for example, Managing and Exploiting Intellectual Capital and European Business.
