Students take 120 credits per year composed of core and optional modules, which allows for students to design their own intellectual journey while maintaining a strong grasp of the fundamentals.

The programme has been designed so that second and third-year modules build on modules taken in earlier years. In your final year, you will complete an Independent Study Project or Dissertation on an agreed topic in International Management.
