MSc Strategy & International Business will provide you with a rigorous and comprehensive understanding of strategy and international business issues, in both developed and emerging economies. With the increasing globalisation of business and the revolution in information and communications technologies, no company can afford to ignore the international dimension of strategy.

Most, if not all, companies require internationalisation strategies, be they simple export or franchising arrangements, or complex and risky international joint ventures and/or foreign direct investment. These activities all require an understanding of the international business environment, which you will gain by studying this course.

The strategy component of this degree will give you the knowledge and skills required to analyse companies’ strategic situations and to solve complex strategic problems. The international business component of the degree will develop your ability to assess and develop internationalisation strategies and operations, as well as your skills in international and cross-cultural management.
