New MSc in International Business and Economic Development

Applications are now open for the MSc in International Business and Economic Development, a new postgraduate taught programme starting in September 2015, delivered jointly by the School of Economics and Kent Business School. The programme is multidisciplinary, bringing together the areas of international business and economic development, and benefits from the expertise and strong research in both Schools.

The programme is particularly suited to students with a degree in Business, Marketing, Management, or other sciences and social sciences subjects, who are looking to acquire economics understanding and skills in order to pursue a career in multinational enterprises, international organisations and consultancy companies.  It also offers opportunities for the development of managers who want to deepen their understanding of the international economic environment, and for those who wish to pursue further academic study at PhD level.

The new MSc in International Business and Economic Development offers students a very valuable training, which combines the study of strategies used by international enterprises with theoretical economic models useful for the applied work done by international development institutions and non-governmental organisations.
