Are you looking for a clear understanding of global business, from both a theoretical and practical perspective? This change in direction business course is open to applicants from any background, and will give you the edge with transnational organisations, in recruitment and with opportunities for promotion.
There’s a focus on the global business environment, an emphasis on managing international organisations, and special attention to the cultural challenges of extending operations across multiple countries. The course culminates in either a master’s dissertation or if you prefer, a consultancy project where you’ll tackle an issue faced by a real client.
The Masters course attracts students from around the world, creating a global perspective within the classroom. You’ll be developed as a leader and manager while expanding upon your research skills.
Our graduates typically go into graduate positions with multinational companies or smaller businesses with operations and supply chains in several countries. Some graduates have gone on to work in their family business. The course could also lead you to a postgraduate research degree such as an MPhil, PhD and Professional Doctorate.
If you decide to start up your own business, it’s good to know that the combined turnover of our graduates’ start-up companies is higher than that of any other UK university.
This International Business Management course is covered by the prestigious AACSB accreditation for Newcastle Business School, which was ‘Business School of the Year’ at The Times Higher Education Awards 2015.
