Why choose this course?
Business today is international. Businesses are connected around the globe with suppliers, customers and competitors. To succeed they must be fast, responsive and aware of the cultural diversity that shapes their markets. And they need a management capability that is distinctly international in outlook. Our course enables you to develop this mindset in a group of students all equally eager to ‘go places’. The course combines the exploration of the international business context and the development of those practical intercultural management skills you need to create impact.
In year 2 you will study core management knowledge and skills, and develop essential presentation and job market skills. All these subjects underpin the activity of international businesses and their managers.
During the later years of the course you will concentrate specifically on developing your knowledge of the international business domain and you will develop the international communication and negotiation skills and the intercultural management skills that are required to drive your business agenda. You will also be able to develop your own business research project – an excellent way to develop in-depth knowledge of businesses – and a genuine addition to your CV.
Throughout your studies you will work with Dundee Business School academics who bring their expertise in business, industry and intercultural management straight into the class room.
How you learn
Dundee Business School tutors are committed to providing you with an engaging and challenging experience. You will develop your graduate skills and in-depth understanding of contemporary management issues through business simulations, team work, projects, and problem-solving scenarios. Lectures, tutorials and seminars will present you with the challenges of today’s business world – and with the knowledge required to understand and direct these.
How you are assessed
A wide range of assessment methods, designed to practise the skills you need in business are used throughout all years of the course. These include class tests and examinations, presentations, group work, problem solving exercises and case studies, and practical exercises. If you undertake a project in the Honours year of the course, this will give you a further opportunity to develop your critical, analytical and research skills.

What our students say
“I have now started my graduate training in a large multinational and I am really pleased that all the international management topics are studied are absolutely relevant in real business life. We just went to China for business and I had a first chance of trying out my intercultural negotiation skills. Quite daunting, but really exciting to see how this works”.
As a graduate of the International Management course you will have the skills and knowledge to work effectively in the international business domain. Yes, you will still need the practice and the real life experience, but our graduates tell us that what they study ‘clicks’ with reality. You will have developed an international mindset, and the skills and attitude it takes to operate with success across different cultures, societies and ways of doing business.
