About the course

Research shows that employers are more likely to look favourably on job applications that have relevant work experience. With this in mind, we developed the popular MSc Business Management with Internship.

This programme follows the same format as the MSc Business Management, but offers students the opportunity to undertake a four-month internship with an external organisation, which forms part of your final assessment.

It will help you become a competent and confident professional by fostering the development of key academic knowledge as well as the necessary practical skills.

Throughout the programme you gain a comprehensive understanding of how organisations operate. You adopt a range of strategic and up-to-date perspectives and become proficient in functional areas including marketing, finance, and human resource management. This will significantly enhance your ability to implement change that will benefit the organisation as a whole.
