Being a successful business leader in our fast-changing, global economy demands a particular range of skills. On this flexible course (available part- or full-time) you will learn key management principles and refine your critical insight.

You’ll learn how to take a business idea from first proposal to real-world profit. You’ll gain practical business experience and develop skills that will give you an employability edge. The course is specifically designed for anyone who may be looking to complement their non-business degree and has little or no prior business background, and may also interest those who have completed a business degree to ordinary level and be aiming to enhance their qualifications.

What gives the best managers their unique vision? How can you drive a team to deliver? How do organisations engage with and shape the world around them? How does that change as you move from a local context to national and international relationships? We’ll prepare you to answer these real-world questions and more – so that your international management career gets off to the best possible start.

On this course you’ll focus on best practice in international management and leadership, preparing you for a wide range of careers. You will study a range of modules covering all the core functions of management including the commercial business, community, and voluntary or social enterprise sectors.

In order to obtain the MSc, students will chose a capstone option from the following:

Business Consultancy in Practice —This is a ‘hands-on’ practical project where students work with real clients as a consultant within an external organisation to develop project management skills and reflect on their learning experiences.

Business Incubation Programme — Students will develop a new business or social enterprise start-up of their choice. They will work with mentors, QMU’s Business Innovation Zone and Business Gateway.

Dissertation — This offers the opportunity to conduct a substantial academic research project around a topic of choice. The course content reflects our desire to ensure that graduates are fully aware of the wider societal impact of business, and of the responsibility of managers and leaders toward business and global sustainability.
