Our Management and International Business course teach you the fundamental skills and attributes you need to become a successful international manager. You’ll become adept at strategic and tactical business decisions, understanding international cultural differences, and managing and motivating staff in businesses on an international scale.

You will experience working in internationally diverse student team-based projects collaborating to deliver effective and professional reports and presentations as part of module assessments reflecting the professional practice of international management. Throughout the course, the course team will give you the support you need to realize your potential and we look forward to working with you to develop your knowledge, understanding, and skills for the career of your choice.

WHAT'S COVERED IN THIS COURSE?

Initially, in the first stage, you will examine the key challenges faced by global businesses to fully appreciate the complexity and dynamics of leadership and management practice. This will see you broaden your skills in organization, communication, and working with others, particularly within an increasingly diverse cultural context.

During the second stage of your course, you will begin to explore the complexity of international operations management integrated with corporate social responsibility, sustainability, and the role of innovation. You’ll be taught international strategy while also developing your research skills in preparation for your major project.

The final core Major Project module is tailored to your career aspirations. The module provides three project options;

  • A work-based study route enabling you to relate the project to a current employer;

  • A traditional dissertation involving an in-depth exploration of both the theory and practice of international business using primary research.
