Course description

The MA in International Business Management course aims to produce business ambassadors and future leaders in this field. Your studies will equip you with knowledge and skills to address the current issues in business, entrepreneurship, creative cultural tourism and innovation in Uzbekistan and similar contexts. Irrespective of the pathway you may choose – MA in International Business ManagementMA in International Business Management (Creative Cultural Tourism) and MA in International Business Management (Entrepreneurship and Innovation) – you will be able to progress from a critical and reflexive practitioner to an advanced business practitioner with a deeper and broader view of business. You will also engage in research through your dissertation/project and will have opportunities to specialise in aspects of practice through the option modules.

How you will study

The learning and teaching processes of the MA in International Business Management course build on students’ current experience that will be discussed and reflected upon to maximise personal development and to share learning across diverse domains. The course draws extensively on models of critical reflection as a means of “interrogating” and theorising professional practice.

Alongside the scheduled studies, students’ ‘independent’ study is very important. This is the time that you will learn without direct supervision from, or contact with, a member of staff and this makes up a large part of your studies.

To summarise, very broadly, a student’s study activity will break down into:

  • Scheduled contact/activity time (lectures, seminars, tutorials, supervisions and other- directed activities);
  • Structured independent study, such as preparing for scheduled learning activity;
  • Case studies that are frequently used to provide context for, and to demonstrate the application of theory;
  • Workshops/practical classes;
  • Group/team work as a Class Preparation Assignment;
  • Student presentations or student-led seminars; and
  • A “clinic" where students can raise any problems related to the module.

Course structure

The MA in International Business Management has three Pathways:

  • MA in International Business Management
  • MA in International Business Management (Creative Cultural Tourism)
  • MA in International Business Management (Entrepreneurship and Innovation)

The course is offered on a full time or a part time mode. The full time mode is an attractive option for international students or students taking a sabbatical. The structure of studies for full time students is constructed based on the module choice and under close supervision by the Course Leader. Both full-time and part-time students have to study 180 credits over the period of their studies. The dissertation/project may take place in summer after the modules are complete.

The course structure is validated by the University of Westminster (UK) every five years, but the structure may change by adapting to feedback received from a variety of sources.

During the MA International Business Management course, I gained more profound knowledge on the processes which are at the core of every business and how those processes can streamline the operational performance of an organisation. For example, what kind of IT tools and mechanisms can be used to help your business be more efficient or how using IT technology can make your business more transparent and accountable.
