Study type Taught


Our MA in International Higher Education Management (IHEM) is one of a few Master’s degrees focusing on higher education management in a global context. We’ve designed this course for higher education professionals who want to progress to senior leadership positions.

The MA IHEM is a part-time two year course starting 16 May 2022. A blend of online and face-to-face learning, it combines two residentials in Bath with online learning, and assessment.

We want to help shape the next-generation of higher education management leaders. You will: - learn how internationalisation impacts the daily challenges of managing a modern university

  • discover, share and examine best practice from around the world

  • equip yourself with the skills to improve management at your own institution

We want to inspire our graduates to push for change throughout the higher education sector.

We want to give you the practical skills and experience to advance your career. Instead of a traditional dissertation, you’ll do a six-month international consultancy project. You might want to look at an issue at your own institution or you might find someone on the course who can help get you access to work in a different country. This will allow you to apply best practice and demonstrate your expertise.

We’ve designed a programme of taught units to help you to become a more effective leader. Subjects include big data analytics, research and teaching management, and managing change.
