With the increasing globalisation of business and the revolution in information and communications technologies, no company can afford to ignore the international dimension of strategy.
Most, if not all, companies require internationalisation strategies, be they simple export or franchising arrangements, or complex and risky international joint ventures and/or foreign direct investment.
These activities require a totally different perspective on company strategy and demand the knowledge and skills necessary for understanding the international business environment.
The MSc in Strategy and International Business provides a rigorous and comprehensive coverage of strategy and international business issues in both developed and developing countries and in private and public sectors.
The strategy component of the degree aims to give students the knowledge and skills required to analyse companies’ strategic situations and to solve complex strategic problems. The international business component of the degree aims to develop the knowledge and skills required for assessing and developing internationalisation strategies and operations as well as skills entailed in international and cross-cultural management.
