The programme aims to develop the skills required to handle successfully the opportunities and challenges present in today’s international business environment. In addition to the theory and practice of international business management, it examines implications of developments and trends, the role of markets, institutions and corporations and how to recognise and respond to management dilemmas relating to entrepreneurship, ethics, corporate social responsibility and innovation.
Graduates of the programme are expected to have developed critical thinking skills, and to be able to analyse complex information, undertake research into major business issues and recommend strategies for change, within an international context.
