The MSc International Management covers a wide range of spheres that might be useful considering when choosing your future career options, from strategy to accounting.
The part I enjoyed the most was the tacit knowledge you get from communicating with people from other countries and sharing experience. On a course of 214 people that come all over the world, the word “international” truly becomes an integrated part of the programme and RHUL experience.
