Designed to assist the next generation of managers in developing the necessary knowledge and skills for career development, the University of Bolton's MSc International Management: May start aims to offer a comprehensive overview of global management theories and practices, with a focus on the different national and cultural contexts in which companies operate.
Stimulating and challenging, this course combines elements of research, innovation and application, with a view to building your academic and professional skillsets and opening up development opportunities in careers and areas of further study. A key course focus is global decision-making and exploring the role of management in a cross-cultural context, including the concepts and issues relating to diversity and human resource management.
You’ll study across a range of relevant subject areas, such as strategy formulation, sustainable business development, innovative marketing, and finance and accounting for a firm foundation in management skills that can be applied in an international setting.
We also offer this course full-time with a 12-month duration starting in September or an 18-month duration starting in January. For details of the 12-month course, please visit our full-time MSc International Management course search web page. For details of the 18-month course, please visit our full-time MSc International Management: 18 months course search web page.
Holders of our MSc International Management can apply for the status of Member (MCMI) or Fellow (FCMI) of the Chartered Management Institute. The point at which you can be accepted will depend on factors other than qualifications, such as your responsibilities at work. Full details are available on the CMI website: http://www.managers.org.uk/
Where changes are made to material information contained in this course description or a decision is taken to suspend a course between the offer of admissions and enrolment, we will inform applicants at the earliest possible opportunity and will outline the various options available to the applicant.
This programme is for students who want a management career that takes them around the world or who will work within international organisations with multi-country operations. The focus will be on global decision-making and the role of management in a cross-cultural context.
As a graduate, you’ll possess an understanding of the global economic, social and political environments which affect an organisation. The course helps to develop a range of employability skills including researching and reporting, public speaking, financial understanding, commercial awareness, strategic planning, enterprise and innovation, and decision making in a global context.
This course is designed to prepare you for a variety of management roles across a range of sectors and types of organisation. This may be within the private, public or voluntary sector, or a multinational company or SME. Roles are available within marketing, HR, finance, information systems, strategic management, retail, manufacturing, management consultancy, international banking and in the commodities markets.
This internationally recognised qualification can also help with progression to competitive graduate schemes which are advanced training packages for aspiring business leaders usually within large corporate companies. These are often multinational or global companies who recognise the need for managers who understand the global market.
Graduates can also use the qualification as a stepping-stone into a range of other careers. For some of these roles, relevant experience and/or postgraduate study may be required. Some of these careers include:
Home students starting this course in the first year will be required to pay a Home fee of £7,020 for the academic year 2022/23.
