The Edinburgh Business School aims to provide forward-thinking, practical, focused MSc degrees that are outward looking and focused on the global business world.

Our courses provide insight into relevant social, political, legal, and macroeconomic conditions affecting international business and will develop your skills in decision-making, people management, leadership and team working.

You will learn how to critically evaluate and implement theories, concepts and techniques of business and apply this knowledge to practical contexts through industry-focused, case-study led projects and ultimately your Industry Placement.

The Industry Placement

At the Edinburgh Business School, we work with corporate business partners from across the world and have a team of designated professionals who will work with you to identify your Industry Placement.

We have a suite of pre-arranged placement opportunities and the team will meet with you at the end of year 1 to ensure that we match you with a suitable placement, which meets your professional career path aims. We encourage you to utilise your own professional network to source independent placements, and our team will work with your contacts to secure and manage these additional Industry Placements. Our business organisations will use an interview process to recruit their placement students.

As the placement is credit bearing, to progress onto the placement year you will need to reach the designated attainment status beforehand. In Year 1 - Semesters 1 and 2 students take 2 mandatory and 2 optional courses In Year 2 - Students take part in their Industry Placement and complete a Dissertation
