Master Business and Management (International Business) - Máster en Administración y Dirección de Empresas (Relaciones Internacionales)
We offer a Master´s in Management for students from any background who would like to work in business or management. The programme has been specifically designed with a clear focus on management in an interconnected global community. This programme covers core management concepts such as international marketing, operations management, global strategy, finance and international human resource management. To help you get the best from your studies, the programme also includes an academic skills module that covers issues such as research methods, presentation skills, group dynamics and employability support.
This MSc is focused specifically on the role of international standards (such as ISO or British Standards) in quality management and improvement and includes highly practical modules focused on how to implement and develop quality standards systems in organisations. As part of this programme students will undertake an independent management consulting style project on international standards.
Students must attain a 2:2 (or overseas equivalent) in an undergraduate degree. Any degree subject will be considered.
We consider all applications on their merits and will look at each individual case before making an offer so students who fall slightly short of the entry criteria should still apply to the School of Management.
Non-native English speakers must achieve an IELTS score of 6.0 overall with no component less than 5.5. A list of equivalent tests are provided here. If you have studied an undergraduate degree taught through the medium of English you maybe exempt from this requirement – click here for further information.
