You realise that business is increasingly conducted in a global marketplace and wish to gain the essential skills necessary to understand and manage business challenges and opportunities in such a setting. You want a career in organisations such as multinational corporations, international non-governmental organisations, multilateral international organisations, and consultancies, many of which have offices in Ireland. You want to be taught and supervised by leading, research-active international business and management academics who provide an engaging learning environment.

International Business is focused on organisations that do not limit their operations to a single nation-state, such as Citigroup and Google. The MSc programme in International Business considers why these organisations exist, how they are successful in the ever-changing global environment, and what their activities mean for the different countries in which they do business.

This programme provides students with the knowledge and skills required to survive and thrive in an increasingly interconnected world. Students will gain an understanding of the tools, techniques and practical skills associated with operating an organisation across borders and an appreciation of the interactions between firms, governments and society in an international context.

Internationally Renowned Experts

This programme offers business students an opportunity to gain in-depth knowledge with regard to global business. The modules undertaken in this programme reflect such a perspective with students best placed to take up employment within global organisations. Further, the good academic foundation provided in this programme may serve as a starting point for progression towards PhD studies at high-quality universities. The MSc International Business programme is run in a multicultural teaching environment with local and international students working and engaging together. The multinational environment, coupled with the relatively small class sizes, allows for a very strong learning experience where key intercultural competencies can be gained through various interactions.

Student Experience

This programme is taught at the Riddel Hall campus in South Belfast, which has dedicated facilities and resources for postgraduate students, including a state-of-the-art lecture theatre, a postgraduate common room, computer suites, catering and parking on site. The excellent Queen’s University Student Guidance Centre provides learning development services for all students who want to improve their study techniques, enhance critical writing, or refresh their knowledge of numerical skills. In addition, the INTO Study Centre provides language support for international students, as well as guidance on careers and employability.
