No work experience is required for this one-year program

The UK's Warwick Business School has announced that it will offer a new MSc program in International Management, beginning this fall.

The new MSc will be delivered on a full-time basis over the course of one year. It will help participants develop an "appreciation of the special requirements for successfully conducting business across national boundaries along with knowledge of relevant theories and their practical application to business cases," according to the program webpage.

Furthermore, the program promises to address issues that are important to a wide variety of businesses. "Rather than being a small part of a company’s strategy, I would argue international business is absolutely central to the success of a company,” says Jim Love, professor of international business and innovation at Warwick.

By completing the new MSc, Love says, "graduates will have a critical understanding and the tools to do international business in the modern age."

The program's core curriculum covers a variety of core business topics in strategy, marketing, and economic behavior, among others. Through electives like "CSR and Business Ethics" and "Global Branding," students will be able to tailor the program to their interests and goals.

To apply for the new MSc, candidates do not need work experience. Instead, applicants should have, or be expecting to obtain, a good undergraduate degree. Applicants from all fields are welcome. While a GMAT score is not required, a well-balanced score of 700 or higher may strengthen a candidate's application. Good English skills are also required.

The program is set to launch in September. The Warwick website advises international students to give themselves plenty of time for the process of obtaining a student visa. For this reason, international applicants should submit their applications by July 31st. For EU and UK applicants, there are no deadlines.
