The Institute of Export has launched a new Masters in International Trade, Strategy and Operations in collaboration with the University of Warwick .
The formal qualification will provide a thorough knowledge and understanding of the management and operational requirements necessary to trade successfully in international markets.
The programme, which can be studied part or full time, is designed to appeal to a wide range of participants looking to take on senior roles in companies which trade internationally with core modules including financial management, business management and trade strategy and international sales and marketing.
Director General, Lesley Batchelor OBE, said: “The IOE is proud to be working with WMG, the research, education and collaboration arm of the University of Warwick on this Master’s degree.
“This new MSc in International Trade, Strategy & Operations is the final piece in the Institute’s progression for our qualifications. We can now say that a student can start with us at the age of 16 and follow our professional qualifications through to an MSc from the University of Warwick.”
The course, which is relevant to organisations trading internationally from engineering and manufacturing to retail and wholesale, is heavily focused on the application of theory into practice and how skills developed throughout the study will be used in a professional environment.
Students who have completed the IOE’s Diploma in International Trade qualification or Foundation Degree Professional Practice in International Trade will be eligible for the three year MSc, alongside students who have a second class honours degree or sufficient professional experience.
Intake dates take place every 3 months annually – in January, April, June and September.
