Our MSc International Management (Japan) programme focuses on management and its environment in Japan and includes high-level courses in international management and finance disciplines. It draws upon Japan experts and management specialists within the University and from positions within London-based commerce, finance and government.
The core modules enable you to study the principles and applications of international management and the interplay between global and local factors influencing management in Japan. You can use the optional modules to focus on either management skills that can be applied worldwide or specialise in understanding the Japanese business environment.
For those who choose to, our programme also offers unique opportunities to improve existing skills in Japanese. No knowledge of Japanese is required to complete the MSc programme successfully, since English language materials are available. Those students who already have Japanese language skills will have every opportunity to use them in studying data and source materials. Why study MSc International Management (Japan) at SOAS
