Take your career global with an MA International Business degree at Leeds Trinity University. Develop your knowledge and skills with a focus on international business operations to kickstart your career as a manager and business specialist. This MA is also suitable for experienced managers who lack a theoretical and applied understanding of the wide range of factors that underpin the modern environment of international business. We’ll guide you through the fast-paced world of International Business by exploring three key themes: the global/local marketplace, international customers and international strategy development. This programme aims to offer the essential knowledge and understanding, skills and experience required for you to operate effectively and successfully in an international business environment. The key themes of the programme are embedded in all of the modules studied:
- The increasing significance of the global/local marketplace, including international supply chains, export/import operations, international expansion and e-commerce.
- Understanding of international customers and their requirements, focusing on the major role played by “customer relationship management” and the pivotal role played by customer service, which should be underpinned by an understanding of cross-cultural management issues associated with diverse international business teams/employees.
- Learning International Business strategy development, including international finance, mergers and acquisitions, international partnerships, global supply/distribution chains and joint ventures. Issues of sustainability, corporate social responsibility and business ethics will also be explored.
