Course content

During this course you will develop your understanding of the theory and practice of different research methods, both quantitative and qualitative, in business. You will learn to assess how the external business environment will affect your business, and develop strategies for responding to this. You will cover the key theories that underpin financial decisions in an international business.

The business environment is very much international these days, which makes global and intercultural working a reality. Businesses need to be effective at managing people from an international perspective, and during this course you will look at organisational behaviour and human resources management with a focus on the continuous change and the increasing globalisation of business and management practice.

As an MSc student, you will also be required to complete a dissertation which will allow you to apply all the understanding, knowledge, analytical and conceptual tools that you have gained from your modules.

Students will also have the option to take a module of their choice which might focus on human resources, finance, project management or marketing.

A generalist career in international organisations, more specialist employment in the finance, marketing and human resources management (HRM) sectors globally and further academic studies, eg, a PhD on an international management topic.
