St Mary’s University, Twickenham was delighted to celebrate the inaugural graduation of students from its Master of Science (MSc) programme in International Business Management this spring.
St Mary’s has a formal partnership with EMD École de Management in Marseille, through which the two institutions collaborate on the delivery of a new International Business Management programme. The part-franchise programme is awarded by St Mary’s and delivered and assessed collaboratively by St Mary’s and EMD, Marseille.
Celebrating on the day with graduating students, Prof Philip Booth, St Mary’s Dean of the Faculty of Education, Humanities and Social Sciences commented:
“In 2017 our two Universities set out a blueprint for international cooperation in higher education underpinned by Catholic values. Today is welcome proof that our joint endeavour has been successful.”
“On behalf of everyone here at St Mary’s, I would like to add my warmest congratulations to our graduates and their families on their significant achievement. I would especially like to congratulate the students from Marseille who have had a wonderful experience at St Mary’s”.
The International Business Management master’s degree supports students in furthering their management career and empowers them to consider new opportunities at home and abroad. It is underpinned by a focus on responsible business practices.
It is a natural pathway for business and management graduates or those who wish to study business and management who come from a different academic background.
The programme includes a study abroad option that enables UK and EU students to spend a semester studying with EMD Marseilles in addition to an optional industry placement to support students in constructing a compelling CV. In addition, students from EMD can study at St Mary’s.
