    As China takes its place as a leading economy in the world, multinational companies and firms throughout the world have a growing need for senior personnel with high quality management skills and special knowledge of China. The MSc International Management (China) responds to this need, giving you the opportunity to study the interplay between global and local factors that influence management decisions in business related to China.

    Teaching & Learning

    The MSc is made up of eight courses. Each course is studied in eight-week sessions. You can only take one course at a time, but each course is typically available in at least two of the year's study sessions. This gives you the flexibility to plan how you study during the year, enabling you to fit your study in with your professional, family and personal commitments.

    You will be individually assigned an online academic tutor for the duration of each course with whom you can discuss academic queries at regular intervals during the study session. You will also have a named administrator providing you with help and advice throughout your studies.

    Before the start of each course you have enrolled in, you will be sent a package containing all of the course materials that you need to complete the course - the core text, textbooks, a collection of key articles, and any course related software.

    To make your experience as a distance learning student more complete and rewarding, we provide access to the Online Study Centre, which is a web-accessed learning environment. Via the OSC, you can communicate with your assigned academic tutor, administrators and other students on the course using discussion forums. The OSC also provides access to the course Study Guide and assignments, as well as a selection of electronic journals available on the University of London Online Library.

    For each course, you will sit a three-hour examination, held on a specified date in October, and complete two assignments during the course study session. Assignments are submitted and feedback given online. Examinations and assignments are weighted 70:30.

    You will study five core courses.

    • Cross-Cultural Management
    • International Management
    • Management in China: Domestic Development
    • Management in China: International Perspectives
    • Topics in the Chinese Economy

    You will also choose three elective courses.

    • Corporate Finance
    • Corporate Governance
    • International Human Resource Management
    • Risk Management: Principles & Applications
    • Finance in the Global Market
    • Research Methods
    • Dissertation

    UK requirements for international applications

    Universities in the United Kingdom use a centralized system of undergraduate application: University and College Admissions Service (UCAS). It is used by both domestic and international students. Students have to register on the UCAS website before applying to the university. They will find all the necessary information about the application process on this website. Some graduate courses also require registration on this website, but in most cases students have to apply directly to the university. Some universities also accept undergraduate application through Common App (the information about it could be found on universities' websites).

    Both undergraduate and graduate students may receive three types of responses from the university. The first one, “unconditional offer” means that you already reached all requirements and may be admitted to the university. The second one, “conditional offer” makes your admission possible if you fulfill some criteria – for example, have good grades on final exams. The third one, “unsuccessful application” means that you, unfortunately, could not be admitted to the university of you choice.

    All universities require personal statement, which should include the reasons to study in the UK and the information about personal and professional goals of the student and a transcript, which includes grades received in high school or in the previous university.


    Minimum Entry Requirements:You should have a good first degree in a social sciences discipline or another appropriate discipline from a recognised university (qualifications in other subjects will be assessed on their merits). Previous education and experience without a first degree will be considered if qualifications are judged to be equivalent to a first degree and included suitable preliminary training. You are required to have internet access in order to participate in this programme.English language requirements:You are required to have a high level of English language ability in reading, writing and study skills. Where English is a second language, applicants will be asked to provide evidence of language ability as tested by the British Council or another registered body.
