If you are a recent graduate, most likely from overseas, and are looking for a masters-level programme which combines general management with a strong international dimension, then this programme could be just what you are looking for.
The programme gives you both a theoretical and a practical grounding in general management but also has a strong emphasis on international business and globalisation. As it is anticipated that a significant number of students will be from the EU or overseas, this broad mix of backgrounds, experience and cultures will enrich the learning process.
What you study
The programme develops your understanding of strategic and change management alongside cross-cultural and internationalisation aspects of business. It reflects the main functional areas of international business and integrates theoretical knowledge with practical enterprise skills in a global context.
How you learn
You learn through a variety of methods both in the classroom and also in workshops. The lectures/workshops are designed to enable you to apply the theoretical approaches you have learned into live and practical situations relevant to industry's needs today.
In addition to the taught elements of the course, undertaking independent research is a key element in each of the modules studied.
Outside the classroom you are supported by tutors in your particular subject areas.
How you are assessed
Assessment methods vary according to the module studied and include essays, report writing, presentations, formal examinations and course work.
Successful completion of this programme will open up opportunities in international business and management.

Universities in the United Kingdom use a centralized system of undergraduate application: University and College Admissions Service (UCAS). It is used by both domestic and international students. Students have to register on the UCAS website before applying to the university. They will find all the necessary information about the application process on this website. Some graduate courses also require registration on this website, but in most cases students have to apply directly to the university. Some universities also accept undergraduate application through Common App (the information about it could be found on universities' websites).
Both undergraduate and graduate students may receive three types of responses from the university. The first one, “unconditional offer” means that you already reached all requirements and may be admitted to the university. The second one, “conditional offer” makes your admission possible if you fulfill some criteria – for example, have good grades on final exams. The third one, “unsuccessful application” means that you, unfortunately, could not be admitted to the university of you choice.
All universities require personal statement, which should include the reasons to study in the UK and the information about personal and professional goals of the student and a transcript, which includes grades received in high school or in the previous university.
