Summary

How does an organisation expand internationally? How is entrepreneurship applied in different countries and cultures?

Our MSc International Business and Entrepreneurship explores the theoretical and practical aspects of starting, growing and developing businesses across international borders. You examine different types of international business activity and the theories and innovative approaches to new business creation in different cultural and economic contexts. You do not need to have previously studied business to apply for this course.

You explore topics including:

  • international expansion models

  • applying economic theory to business management

  • international trade theories and practices

  • international business environments

  • economic, sociological, psychological and managerial theories of entrepreneurship

  • how to develop an international business plan

This course develops your practical business skills and theoretical knowledge, so you’re best prepared to launch your own venture, or apply entrepreneurship in an existing company.

Our county has more start-up businesses than any other in the UK and Essex Business School, where this course is taught, attracts students and academics from all over the world; our current Masters students join us from more than 40 countries across our Colchester and Southend campuses.
