About this course
The MSc International Business with Advanced Practice aims to allow students to acquire mastery of both the macro and micro contexts of international business, with the addition of either an internship or applied consulting project.
It is designed to enable students to build, develop, and integrate international business theory, and develop the skills to then apply this in terms of international business practice. The Advanced Practice element offers students the opportunity to gain valuable workplace environment experience.
The compulsory Advanced Practice element of this programme takes place after you have studied the taught modules at the Masters stage and will enable you to undertake a 15 week long internship, or applied consulting project, working with a real organisation on a live business problem.
This gives you the opportunity to gain experience of the workplace environment and/or practical experience of the “real world” issues faced by those currently engaged in international business.
You will be taught using a wide variety of teaching methods across the modules including lectures and seminars. Typically, you will have 12 hours of contact time per week. In addition to your time in class, you will also be expected to engage in approximately 30 hours of self-study time per week.
You’ll be taught by experienced lecturers and academics who use their experience to demonstrate how the theories you will learn translate in to real International Business scenarios.
Each module is assessed by coursework only (may include class tests).
