About this course

The MSc International Business with Data Analytics with Advanced Practice programme allowa you to acquire mastery of both the macro and micro contexts of international business with a keener focus on e-business and data analytics.

The Advanced Practice offers you the opportunity to study a Masters with the addition of either an internship or applied consulting project and gain valuable workplace environment experience.

More specifically, you would enhance your ability to acquire, develop, and integrate international business theory whilst developing the skills to apply such theories in terms of international business practice and a greater appreciation of how digital aspects and data factors could affect business conduct.

Your final piece of work, either the Dissertation or Research Project, offers you the opportunity to investigate an area of data analytics relevant to international business. The Masters’ Dissertation option provides the opportunity to conceive, design and satisfactorily implement a substantial research project within the broad subject area of international business, whilst the Applied Research Project option enables students to apply the theoretical concepts encountered on the MSc International Business with Data Analytics programme and the practical experience gained from the Advanced Practice stage to a contemporary management issue.

Advanced Practice

The compulsory Advanced Practice element of this programme takes place after you have studied the taught modules at the Masters’ stage

  • and will enable you to undertake a 15-week long internship, or applied consulting project, working with a real organisation on a live business problem
  • gain experience of the workplace environment and/or practical experience of the “real world” issues faced by those currently engaged in international business
  • put your learning into practice and hence, enhance your employability
  • gain enhanced knowledge of the workplace which will facilitate the completion of your Dissertation or the Applied Research Project.

Please note if you undertake an internship this may be paid or unpaid.
