This course can be studied full-time over either one year or two years and may also be taken part-time over two years or more depending on stage of entry. You can start in September or January.
The underlying focus is on developing international business skill sets and inter-cultural perception so that you can think strategically and understand the challenges facing businesses in our modern global economy. As well as traditional teaching and learning methods, such as lectures, workshops and seminars, we will use innovative business techniques and tools, including practical market entry software tools to achieve this.
For example, you will be exposed to real-life case studies with recent examples including Glastonbury Music Festival, the Banking Industry, IKEA, Rocket Internet, Virgin. We also invite a range of guest speakers who will share experiences of managing change and growth in their organisations, supply chain and logistics strategies, marketing and trade management operations, business development and more.
You will have the opportunity to participate in field trips and industry visits, at home and abroad, with recent excursions to Manchester United and Jaguar Land Rover in the UK. In Europe – Barcelona, Brussels, Madrid, Paris, Munich. International – New York (USA), Singapore, Delhi, Mumbai (additional costs may apply).
Many of our teaching staff are research active and will disseminate up-to-date developments in their fields, fostering debate and discussion. For example, recent cohorts have had the opportunity to make use of lecturers’ research outputs in their seminar discussions on areas such as supply chain management (SCM), cyber terrorism, logistics and organisational psychology.
