Response to COVID-19

Our focus is on providing a safe and welcoming learning environment for our students.

We have taken every measure, in line with Government guidance, to ensure continued access to learning. As part of our response to the coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic, we are planning to deliver this course through a mix of live online classes and face-to-face learning opportunities at our London Holborn, Birmingham and Manchester Centres.

We continue to follow Government guidance and any social distancing measures that may be in place. As restrictions ease, face-to-face opportunities will be increased where appropriate and it is safe for us to do so. For the latest information, our response to Covid-19 and FAQs, please check the QA Higher Education website.

Course Summary

The global business environment is currently undergoing a series of fundamental and far-reaching economic, social, technological and geopolitical changes. These changes have led to the emergence of a new and very different market reality that demands of managers very different patterns of thinking and behaviour.

Our MSc Global Business Management has been designed to ensure that graduates will have a sound theoretical grounding in the broad area of business and management and will develop a range of analytical and personal skills. You will have a clear understanding of how your new knowledge and skills may be used effectively within an organisational context.

We’re focused on a digital future and your degree plays an important part in preparing for this, helping you to achieve your employability goals and life ambitions.

We want to equip you with the key skills you need, enhancing your employability and preparing you for the next steps in your career. Blended working is now a permanent feature for many businesses globally and the experience you will gain by studying through a blended learning model will help you prepare for this, building your confidence ready for success in the digital workplace.

The number of live contact hours that you have with your lecturers remains the same

  • You will have timetabled sessions delivered face-to-face on-campus, building relationships and engaging with your student community
  • You will have timetabled live online sessions that will allow you to participate and ask questions throughout the session
  • Support services can be accessed remotely and your campus is open so you can book in and use campus facilities and services face-to-face at a time that works for you, either on your timetabled on-campus days or outside these times

Our blended approach offers the best of both live online and on-campus learning opportunities, and your blended timetables will typically follow one of the below:

Daytime students

If you are a daytime student, you will typically have 2 days of tuition per week – your sessions will be on-campus for 1 of those days and the other day will take place live online.

Evening and weekend students

Evening and weekend blended timetables will typically follow one of the below patterns each week:

  • 2 evenings live online and 1 weekend day face-to-face on-campus, or
  • 2 evenings face-to-face on-campus and 1 weekend day live online
