Semester 1

We’ll consider the rationale for international trade and legal, financial and political factors encountered. You will gain a deeper insight into the implications of managing in a global context.

Semester 2

As the course develops, we’ll consider the practicalities of international trade, using live projects to explore strategy options, which may include expansion, diversification, technology or targeted marketing, for example. MSc projects are expected to centre on economics, finance, marketing research or leadership, while on the MA, the focus is more likely to be human resource management (HRM), marketing communications or project management. For example, one MSc student recently chose to assess the extent to which the International Council of Management Consulting Institutes’ ‘Consulting Readiness Index’ accurately reflects the maturity of national markets for management consultancy services. His findings are expected to have a significant impact on the consultancy industry.
