How does our East Asian Business MSc differ from a typical MBA programme?
A typical MBA programme offered by business schools is structured around a number of disciplinary subjects such as finance, accounting, marketing, human resource management, etc. These subjects are often taught based on business paradigms of Anglo-Saxon countries. The typical textbooks tend to reflect the business approaches of Anglo-Saxon countries like the United States or the United Kingdom. Many MBA programmes will also require you to have taken an undergraduate course in a business-related subject and expect that you will have already gained some working experience.
Our East Asian Business MSc takes a different approach:
Along with the dissertation, students must take two of the following modules.
International Business and East Asia
Work and Organisation in East Asia
Negotiation and Intercultural Communication
Along with your core modules, you will be able to take 90 credits of optional modules including East Asian Studies modules, language modules and a selection of modules from the Sheffield University Management School
The content of our courses is reviewed annually to make sure it's up-to-date and relevant. Individual modules are occasionally updated or withdrawn. This is in response to discoveries through our world-leading research; funding changes; professional accreditation requirements; student or employer feedback; outcomes of reviews; and variations in staff or student numbers.In the event of any change we'll consult and inform students in good time and take reasonable steps to minimise disruption.
