How Upskilling with a Master's in International Management Can Fast-track Your Career

A master’s in International Management is the perfect stepping stone into leadership, and is sometimes seen as an alternative to a Master in Business Administration (MBA) qualification. Taught from a global perspective, this programme also arms you with the skills and knowledge to pursue a career overseas.

For ambitious individuals, the International Business Management master’s at the University of Bolton can develop your talent quickly. And with the help of our dedicated Employability Team, you’ll be able to hit the ground running as soon as you graduate. Here are some of the ways that our course can fast-track your career!

1. Upskill for the global workplace

Through this programme, students will acquire leadership knowledge that is taught in a cross-cultural context. Not only will you learn about global decision-making and the role of management in different cultures, but you’ll develop transferable skills that can be applied anywhere in the world. This puts you in a great position with international organisations with multi-country operations, boosting your employability and kick-starting your career in your chosen industry.

2. Have access to better paid jobs

Studies show that Postgraduates tend to earn more money than graduates with an Undergraduate qualification. So if you’re keen to progress quickly and boost your earning power, a master’s in International Management is worth pursuing. According to the Higher Education Policy Institute 2020 report, those with a master’s degree are likely to earn an average of 18% more than first degree holders, just six months after graduation.

3. You don’t need prior work experience to enrol

Unlike a Master in Business Administration (MBA), you can go straight into completing your International Business Management master’s after your Undergraduate degree. No prior work experience within a management role is required, and all you will need is an honours degree (or equivalent) in a relevant subject. This makes the course highly inclusive, giving people from a range of disciplines the opportunity to hone their business skills.

If you’re interested in upskilling, the master’s in International Management at the University of Bolton could be for you. There’s nowhere better to study if you’re looking to take your career to the next level. Not only are we No.3 in the UK for Teaching Quality in Business Studies Courses (The Times and Sunday Times Good University Guide 2021), but we’re also featured in the Top 50 UK Universities in The Guardian University League Tables 2021. Plus, we’ve been voted No.1 in the North West for Student Satisfaction for three years running (Complete University Guide in 2021, 2020 and 2019)!
