What will I learn?

About the course

This course is specifically aimed at International students, supporting those wishing to gain practical work based experiential learning. Together with studying your chosen course we are offering an additional 6-month placement opportunity, making the course 18 months in length. This allows students to put into practice the skills and techniques developed throughout the Master’s degree within a UK environment after completing the 12-month taught programme.

This course has a key focus on how national, regional and international initiatives regulate the ever-changing dynamics of financial and cultural globalisation, including how these affect respect for human rights in contemporary society.

You will have the opportunity to gain a critical understanding of the rapidly changing and dynamic international business environment, and the skills needed to analyse the activities and strategies of multinational enterprises. This programme will provide the opportunity for you to study a wide range of topics in international business, from both a theoretical and practical perspective. The course is designed to enable you to tailor it to your own personal and career interests, with a number of option modules available.

Placements

This course offers you the chance to undertake a 6 month placement at the end of the taught element. A placement can help you build on the knowledge and skills developed on the course.

Our Employability and Placements Office are available to support you in finding placement opportunities and can provide advice in areas such as interview skills and preparing CVs and covering letters.
