The International Management Research Dissertation

This research dissertation is one of the elements that really differentiates our MSc. The goal is that you will produce a real-world piece of business analysis, a piece of research that you can be proud of. To do this, you must integrate the portfolio of skills that are taught in the module: academic research, quantitative and qualitative research methods, investigation of cases, and in-company research experience. You will be mentored by one of our academic or professional staff on a one-on-one basis.

The International Residency

The MSc in International Management has partnered with the School of Management at Fudan University, Shanghai, China to deliver an international residency program in Global Business Strategy. Fudan University is currently ranked the 51st best university globally, and its School of Management is ranked fifth in China.
The course ‘Do!ng Business in China’ was jointly designed by Trinity College Dublin and Fudan School of Management.  Sessions change annually to reflect global events but can include International Finance in China; Global Supply Chain Management; Strategic Marketing in China, Leading Chinese Talent, and Chinese Foreign Direct Investment. During your time in China, you will pay site visit to companies, network with entrepreneurs and alumni, and listen to CEOs discuss business trends in China.

The Academic Year

Classes run throughout the academic year, from September to April, with exams at the end of each semester. Continuous assessment forms a major component of your grade. The International Residency Week is in May, and the Business Research Project is due at the end of July.
