International Business

This programme provides you an insight into business network analysis that helps you employ network applications to understand strategic alliances, global commodity chains, and customer relationship management. You will develop a range of intellectual and practical skills to become a specialist in the global knowledge economy. If you do not have a first degree in business then this Master's will give you a grounding in business management, also offering you specialised international business modules and an independent specialist project. Our courses take into account the increasingly multidisciplinary and international nature of modern market developments. You will gain integrated theoretical knowledge and applied skills that employers are looking for. You will learn to distinguish and apply the most relevant research methodologies, techniques and tools. You will also build the interpersonal skills that will enable you to interact effectively and implement solutions efficiently.
