Teaching methods

We offer a varied programme of teaching and learning that includes small group discussions, practical workshops, web-based learning, case study analysis and lectures. We also provide sessions by visiting staff, practitioners and consultants to give a varied perspective on the topics covered.

You will be assessed through a variety of coursework including written reports of various lengths, presentations and practical assignments. You will also be required to complete a longer research document, in conjunction with a supervisor, for the research component of your programme.

Work Placement

As part of our MSc International Business, you’ll have the opportunity to undertake a one-year placement. This will develop your practical understanding of business and allow you to take academic theory and combine it with practical skills.

Our academics draw on a wealth of real-world, hands-on experiences in organisations of all sizes, in all kinds of sectors. They also effectively use case studies to explore the challenges companies face, the approaches they take and the results they achieve.
