While the phrase ‘the world is your oyster’ has started to feel a little more accurate in recent years; if you want to work in an international business, it’s now more important than ever to demonstrate a global understanding.
As you might expect, this is just what our Online MSc International Business offers. The course has a global focus, teaching you about business principles from across the world. However, it’s not just the modules which bring the world to you – the class is full of international students for you to learn from and network with (as some of our students have already found out).
For Jamaican student, Safiya Carroll, studying the Online MSc has provided her with the perfect situation of being able to study without the additional costs of needing to move or travel:
“From the very first day, the academic advisors display a keen interest in your performance,” she says. “Regardless of the physical distance, the service is personable: no student is treated like ‘just a number’.”
Yet the benefit of being able to keep her job whilst studying has also been crucial in driving her career forward. Safiya currently works as an investment advisor for a stockbroking firm in Kingston, Jamaica. She feels that the MSc will provide her with the right tools needed for working in a competitive global environment:
“The scope of such a degree is amazing: I can work in marketing, imports and exports, finance, logistics and entrepreneurship, to name just a few.”

Like all our online courses, the Online MSc International Business offers an interactive, virtual learning experience and provides access to the same world class teaching as our campus-based equivalent. Learning is supported in a variety of ways, including interactive group work, expert-led video content, support from a personal tutor, careers service, lectures and real-life case studies.
Danish student, Helena Feibert, began studying for her MSc at the end of August 2015. Her ambition was to gain experience which would help solidify her academic background whilst also taking her career to the next stage. In December 2015 – just four months after joining the course - she secured a new job as a senior consultant for growing international jewellery manufacturer and retailer, Pandora.
The course has it all: “[We have] everything you would find in an onsite programme. [The Online MSc has] helped me understand what drives organisations and how this can be linked across markets. It has provided me with insight into some of the aspects that make up a good leader, not just a good manager.” She adds, “Navigating in such an environment drives my interests and choices.”
