Taking Ideas Further



The MSc in International Business is aimed at graduates who wish to build on their previous non-business related degree and want to develop their skills for career advancement. It is open to graduates from non-business programmes who want to expand their horizon when it comes to their career. The programme should also appeal to those interested increasing their business acumen with a view to capitalising on their existing skills sets within organisations they are working for. 


COURSE DURATION: 1 Year (Full-time), 2 Years (Part-time)




This programme is geared at providing non-business graduates with the innovation, commercialisation  and business development skills required to develop and promote products and services in an international environment while furthering their business skills and knowledge.

Students will expand their business knowledge and skills through simulation, guest speakers and an international trip. Students will also undertake an industry consultancy project which will prepare them for opportunities in the workplace.
