MSc International Business

WBS is a world-class research-intensive business school, giving me direct access to the brightest minds who are pushing the boundaries of knowledge in the field. Research breakthroughs are embedded in the teaching, and students are encouraged to challenge new ideas with their critical viewpoint. I knew that studying at WBS would give me access to an engaged international alumni community, and recruiting network that would extend the value of an MSc far beyond academic content.

The best thing about the programme in terms of skills acquisition is group work. Group work projects are challenging, and learning how to create a robust synergetic team is fundamental to perform well. At WBS you have the chance to tackle complex problems with group members in a structured environment; allowing me to practice and improve my persuasion skills; strengthen my empathy; and continuously challenge my beliefs.

MSc International Business

I was first attracted to WBS because of the prestigious name of the University of Warwick and the consistently high positioning of WBS in the university rankings. However, what truly convinced me was the quality of the facilities available to students, I was very impressed by the beautiful new WBS building, with large and modern lecture rooms and study spaces.

In my personal experience, the best part of the course has been the opportunity to interact with classmates from all over the world. WBS’ international student body has helped me to learn about different cultures, religions, traditions, food and much more. Throughout my studies, I have been inspired and motivated by the excellence of my classmates who all have bright future career plans. The ambitious, stimulating environment created at WBS truly inspires me and drives me to work towards my future goals.

The best thing about the course is the general sense of variety offered. There are a wide range of modules with topics that interest everyone, which makes the course feel individualised to your interests.

I would definitely recommend that future students try to prepare for the course before it begins in September. Even something simple as watching the news and having a good idea of what is happening in the political and economic world may prove to be useful, as when learning the material throughout your course you will have examples which may help contextualise your learning.

MSc International Business

I pursued an MSc in International Business as an add-on to my BSc in Fine Arts in Animation because of my interest in the business aspect of creative media production. Along with boosting my curiosity and love for experiencing and understanding different cultures, I felt the course would help fuel my entrepreneurial spirit.

I would highly recommended that future students attend the amazing conferences and workshops that WBS organises, such as the Marketing Insights Series, where prestigious guest speakers are invited to WBS to share their experiences. These events give you a chance to listen to guest speakers, network with other students who have similar interests to you and gain a clear insights into the industries you are most interested in.

MSc International Business

I decided to study MSc International Business at WBS as I wanted to gain practical knowledge to understand how international businesses cope with challenges and how businesses are competing in a global environment.  

One of the best aspects of studying at WBS is the connections that I have built. These contacts will help me in the future in terms of developing my career but also setting up business opportunities worldwide.  

I have had exceptional help from the careers team, they have been very supportive with going through my CV, holding regular workshops to enhance skills and arranging many employer events.

Since studying at WBS, I feel I now stand out from many other students graduating from different universities. 

Emilia Persson

MSc International Business

Before coming to Warwick Business School, I completed my undergraduate degree at the University of Cambridge, where I studied Human, Social and Political Sciences – with a particular focus on Politics and International Relations.

I was attracted to WBS partly because of its impressive ranking as one of the best business schools in the UK and Europe. It was important for me to study somewhere that attracts some of the best professors in the field, where there is a clear passion for business. I was then also particularly interested in studying International Business as it was made clear that it was not necessary to have a business-related undergraduate degree, and that actually coming from diverse backgrounds (whether it be in terms of previous academic studies, nationality, gender or anything else) was only seen as a benefit to the programme.

MSc International Business

After finishing my degree, I decided to continue my studies on a master’s level and kick start my career in London. I consider myself a global citizen and I was always dreaming of pursuing an international career. After thorough research I decided that MSc International Business is the most appropriate choice to achieve my goals and so I applied.

Apart from being a worldwide top ranked business school, WBS has much more to offer. From my first day on campus, I realised that I have become part of a community of students, academic staff and other specialists that every day strive to become better, connect and share knowledge with each other. For me, the most enjoyable experience was meeting people from around the world with diverse backgrounds, by working with them on group projects, enjoying our free time in pubs or doing sport activities.

Silvia De Andres Plaza

MSc International Business

I liked the specific course I chose, as it aligned closely to what I wanted to do in the future through the variety of modules it offered, each bringing an in-depth curriculum. The best thing about the programme for me was the variety. I learnt about International Business, Strategy, Marketing and Finance all in the span of one year, giving me a range of skills.

I also vastly enjoyed the people I was surrounded by - though the course is only for a year, I have made friends that will last a lifetime. Lastly, there are some great teachers amongst the staff, all with different ways of thinking and learning which was unlike anything I ever encountered anywhere else. I would say some of the lecturers were the ones who inspired me; they had a very different viewpoint and talked to us about the importance of maintaining one’s values in business and thinking outside the box.
