Overview

Programme Code: NT15

Mode of Attendance: Full-time

The BSc International Management (Middle East and North Africa) provides students with a strong grounding in international management and specialist knowledge of business and management in the Middle East and North Africa. Students take courses in accounting, finance, managerial economics, marketing, corporate governance, research methods and international business strategy, together with specialist courses that draw on SOAS’s knowledge of management and finance in the Middle East and North Africa and their economic, historical and cultural context.

The programme aims to provide students with a conceptual understanding of core principles of international management and finance, together with the ability to apply this knowledge to real issues facing business and other organisations that operate in the Middle East and North Africa or that deal with organisations in those countries. Students have the opportunity to take approved courses from other SOAS departments, such as Law, Politics, Economics and Languages and Cultures of the Middle East and North Africa, providing a rich inter-disciplinary learning environment.

Employment

Graduates will have a firm grasp of international management disciplines that should place them in a good position to pursue a career in business, banking, consulting, media and other industries, especially in companies or organisations that operate in, or do business with the Middle East and North Africa. Students who attain a first or upper second will be well-placed to embark on postgraduate study. DeFiMS maintains close links with employers in the United Kingdom, its focus regions including the Middle East, North Africa and elsewhere. We expect that many of our graduates will move into banking, consulting, media, and other industries.

A Student's Perspective

I would recommend the MSc Finance and Financial Law programme at SOAS for those who are interested in both finance and financial law while also wish to compare the differences between jurisdictions. The programme is perfect for those who would like to pursue a career in relation to the emerging economies in the future.
