The business course tutors have strong expertise in their field and operate an open door policy. I have found this very beneficial as I've been able to discuss any of my concerns with them throughout my time on the course.

I chose the MSc International Business Management because it’s not an ordinary postgraduate programme – it combines theory and practice from the very first day to ensure that students are well prepared for a career in global management. This approach really helped me build confidence and take a more ‘hands on’ approach to study.
