BUSINESS AND MANAGEMENT (INTERNATIONAL BUSINESS) MA

This programme provides you with a broad introduction to the fundamental principles of business and management in a rapidly changing, increasingly globalised world.

Supported by practice-based interdisciplinary teaching and research, you’ll develop your business expertise alongside the practical and professional skills needed to effectively manage the challenging issues affecting organisations today.

Our courses are designed to allow you to tailor your programme of study to your academic interests and career aspirations. You’ll take a mix of taught modules (core and optional) and complete a major dissertation/consultancy project.

If you choose to study one of our Business and Management pathway routes, there are pathway-specific required modules, and your final dissertation/consultancy project will be in your chosen specialism.

In addition to the University’s English Language Unit, further support is offered to international students whose first language is not English via the Advanced Academic and Business Skills module. This module works in conjunction with your other modules to develop your employability, business and academic English language skills, and to help you build confidence in your own ability to work at postgraduate level in international, cultural and professional contexts.

Campus Information

NEWTON PARK

There can’t be many campuses that rival Newton Park. The parkland estate has everything you’d expect from a modern university, as well as a castle and a lake. All this and it's only four miles from the buzz of central Bath.

Job Opportunity Potential

We’ve got lots to share with you and to help we have split our work into three elements which will support you with:

  • Exploring your options
  • Gaining valuable experience
  • Progressing your ideas and career plans

At Bath Spa we believe you are continually exploring your options and experiencing different pathways to progression, but that this journey is not linear. It keeps on going throughout your time with us and when you leave. Some of our services cross all three areas and allow you to explore, experience and progress all in one, such as The Bath Spa Award.

We encourage you to read resources and attend events across all stages of Explore, Experience and Progress as they will offer beneficial insight and development opportunities regardless of the current stage you are at in your career journey.
