The MSc Business with International Management has been developed for recent graduates in non-business disciplines who are looking to add a business dimension to their undergraduate specialism. This programme will build both your general business knowledge and understanding, as well as developing the personal skills needed for the wide variety of managerial-level roles available in today’s international business environment.
This course is part of Newcastle Business School, part of a select group of business schools worldwide, following accreditation by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB) in business and accounting – the first in Europe to gain the double accreditation. Founded in 1916, AACSB International is the longest serving global accrediting body for business schools that offer undergraduate, master’s, and doctoral degrees in business and accounting.
This option offers the opportunity to spend three months gaining all-important work experience and employability skills in a professional work setting. You may be able to extend this over more than one semester in cases where it is adjacent to a vacation period. Support is provided to help source opportunities and to perfect the applicant CV but ultimately the onus is on the student to secure the internship position.
The MSc Business with International Management is designed around a set of modules that are common to all the ‘MSc Business with’ programmes. These modules cover general business functions, strategic management and organisational analysis. These will develop your strategic awareness, leadership potential and understanding of the theory and practice of international business.
In the second semester you will be given the opportunity to specialise in International Management. Students will consider issues of ethics and accountability that challenge multi-national organisations and the role played by corporate social responsibility; the varying approaches to marketing that are relevant to organisations working within a dynamic global environment and of strategic and international HRM perspectives.
In the final semester you will complete your research and write your dissertation. Every student has a personal research supervisor and will be required to submit an assessed research proposal prior to embarking on the dissertation itself.
Your teaching and learning for the MSc Business with International Management takes place in seminars, lectures, tutorials and workshops, totalling around 14 hours per week. In addition, you will be expected to engage in independent study involving directed and self-directed learning, around 33 hours.
Assessments for this course are based on a mix of assignments, presentations, group work and exams.
You’ll be taught by experienced lecturers and academics who use their industry experience to demonstrate how the theories you will learn translate in to real life situations.
Graduates on the programme have joined a wide range of businesses, including graduate training schemes. A significant number of graduates have gone back to work for a family business or even started up their own businesses.
Upon successfully completing your course, you may undertake further professional development and training through Professional Pathways programmes. These are offered to our graduates for free, from our partner, QA.
