MSc Management (International Business)

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.
