With an emphasis on international business, acquire the tools, techniques and concepts of how international business is conducted.
At Kent Business School the MSc in International Business and Management provides an insight into a number of areas of general management, with particular emphasis on key aspects of international business.
This programme is designed to equip you with the necessary tools, techniques and concepts to understand how international business is conducted and how firms and countries can thrive in today’s global marketplace.
This programme is designed for graduates who wish to pursue a management related discipline but with less than 3 years work experience, particularly from non-business related degrees, who are seeking a deep understanding of the world of business and management.
Graduates typically pursue careers in multinational enterprises, international organisations, governmental bodies or consultancies.
The following modules are offered to our current students. This listing is based on the current curriculum and may change year to year in response to new curriculum developments and innovation:
- Organisational Behaviour and Human Resource Management
- Business from an International Perspective
- Financial and Management Accounting
- Managing the Multinational Enterprise
- Corporate Responsibility and Globalisation
- International Marketing Strategy
- Business Report
The programme involves a taught and a project component. The taught programme is assessed by a mixture of coursework assignments throughout the year, and by examinations in May and June.
Once these are completed, students then work full time on the Business Report, and the Personal Development & Management Skills Report. This provides an opportunity to apply the techniques and insights presented in the programme and apply them to a particular problem area.
Students who wish to apply for a higher degree should have a good honours degree from the UK (minimum 2:2) or equivalent internationally recognised qualification in a non-business-related discipline.
Applicants without an honours degree may also be considered on the basis of work experience, professional qualifications and the relevance of the programme to their current professional role.
Proof of English language proficiency is required. We do offer a number of pre-sessional courses in English for Academic Purposes through Kent International Pathways.
