Summary

This Masters programme introduces frameworks and methodologies to understand the interaction between firm strategies and policies in a rapidly globalising world.

  • Examine the strategic choices multinational enterprises make to compete in an increasingly global economy

  • Complete an international study challenge through a foreign study visit

  • Deepen your global perspective

  • Gain an holistic view of the international business environment

  • Connect the ‘micro’ firm view with the ‘macro’ view of countries and regions

On this Masters programme, you will examine the strategies multinational firms use to compete in a global economy. Also, the development and policy challenges they create, from the perspectives of both developing and developed countries.

Through this MSc degree you will learn how firms are organised internally. Additionally, you will take an holistic view of the international business environment, regarding the competitiveness of firms and industries. You will therefore be able to connect the 'micro' firm view with the 'macro' view of countries and regions.

A holistic approach Effective leadership requires more than first-class business acumen, it requires a degree of self-awareness and sensitivity. Our Masters programmes offer you a unique practice-centred approach to teaching equipping you with the tools to become a compelling leader. This approach creates emotionally intelligent graduates who can be fully effective in their chosen careers.

How you will learn Henley has a strong reputation for the practical application of business ideas and concepts. We are underpinned by academic excellence and the strength of our research. We offer high-quality technical skills training as well as a deep understanding of the importance of personal development for leaders. This is a thread that is woven through all of our Masters programmes.

Our Masters programmes feature a mix of core and optional modules, tailoring your degree towards your needs and career ambitions. You will complete up to 10 taught modules during your programme, totalling 180 credits. One module usually equates to 20 credits or 10 hours of work per week. Your week will include lectures, tutorials, workshops and personal study, with each accounting for 25% of your time on average. This provides you with the opportunity to discuss and explore the material in depth with your lecturers and fellow students.

You will be introduced to the latest thinking and research findings then have the opportunity to challenge those that have created it. You will also explore real-world issues, tackle current business challenges, and interact with guest lectures and speakers from industry. This gives you the opportunity to test, extend and refine your knowledge and skills with confidence.

How we assess you You will learn and be assessed through a wide variety of teaching methods depending on your chosen postgraduate course. These include online materials, guest lectures, group assignments, case studies, field visits, dealing room simulations, presentations, applied projects, consultancy work and examinations.

On average examinations of core modules form between 15 - 50% of the assessed work. The remaining comes from coursework, including a written dissertation or project depending on your chosen programme.

Careers After Graduating from your Masters you may follow a variety of career paths. These include roles in business development or general management, with a range of employers including large corporations or multinational enterprises or government agencies.

Our alumni tell us that this programme gives them the key skills and knowledge required to build a career in multinational enterprises or government agencies.
