Extended MSc International Business

Course Overview

The Extended MSc International Business integrates the Graduate Certificate programme with our standard MSc International Business programme to allow entry for students with qualifications equivalent to a standard degree (third class, pass or ordinary). It is a preparatory course that will provide you with a solid foundation in the skills needed for progression onto the MSc International Business stage. Students, who successfully complete the Graduate Certificate stage with a minimum overall average mark of 50%, will be in a position to progress directly to the MSc International Business stage.


This programme is also available as Extended MSc International Business with Advanced Practice, which includes either an internship or project. Successful completion of the eight taught modules will allow you to acquire mastery of both the macro and micro contexts of international business, specifically the ability to acquire, develop, and integrate international business theory whilst developing the skills to apply such theories in terms of international business practice. The Master’s Dissertation option, provides the opportunity to conceive, design and satisfactorily implement a substantial research project within the broad subject area of international business, whilst the Applied Research Project option enables students to apply the theoretical concepts encountered on the MSc International Business program.
