MSc International Management

Sheffield University Management School, Faculty of Social Sciences

Triple Crown accreditation means we meet the high standards of three of the world’s most prestigious accreditation bodies: AMBA, EQUIS and AACSB. This puts us in the top one per cent of business schools worldwide.

I was attracted by the small class sizes and combination of the interactive teaching programme and research project within an organisation to provide real-world work experience.

About the course

September 2016 start

Course description 2016

Accredited by the Chartered Management Institute

Multinational companies must overcome various challenges to do business across borders.

On this course, you'll develop your understanding of those challenges.

Focusing on Europe and East Asia, you'll look at the opportunities in these regions and the way business is done. You also have the option to study a language.

There are not many business schools that can give you all that. But Sheffield has the global outlook, the connections and the breadth of expertise to deliver.

For this MSc, we draw on our own experience in areas such as strategy and global supply chain management. We also collaborate with colleagues from other departments, experts in languages, intercultural communication and international development.

You can apply to do a project-based dissertation, working with an external organisation. Recent projects include researching the international student market in the UK for an immigration consultancy.

You can also apply to spend the summer at another leading university overseas.
