Course Description

The International Business and Management MSc/MA is designed to advance your knowledge and develop the analytical and evidence-based skills that are needed in your future professional life. In terms of knowledge, the focus is on a range of business and management disciplines. For skills, our ultimate vision is to empower you to achieve 6C’s, namely Cross-cultural competence, Collaboration, Communication, Critical thinking, Creativity and Compassion, all of which are vital for effective business leaders in a fast-changing global business context. 

We aim to provide the best possible experience during your studies. One particular feature of the course is the study trip which takes place in the first semester and is usually overseas. This, together with other organised company visits, provide IBM students with invaluable opportunities to tackle real-life business challenges. The course team will continue to develop this kind of experiential learning that fosters an application-orientated approach.  

The course places much emphasis on the integration of theory and practice within an international environment and this is reflected in the teaching and learning strategies. Teaching will be delivered through lectures, seminars, live case studies and business simulation exercises. You will also benefit from inspirational guest speakers, who will share their own personal experiences, knowledge and expertise. A variety of assessments will be used across the course. This includes a combination of essays, business reports, presentations and examinations.  

You will be encouraged to be proactive in your approach to learning, by participating in classroom discussions, undertaking research and working in teams. You will also be expected to spend an appropriate amount of time in independent study. You will be supported via the Virtual Learning Environment accessing study materials and online resources on the Blackboard platform.

You will have a personal tutor, who will provide you with academic support and guidance throughout your university journey so that you can achieve your full academic and personal potential.
