Loughborough University London announces new Institute for International Management

Loughborough University London is proud to announce the launch of a sixth institute, which focuses on pioneering postgraduate teaching and research into international management.

The Institute is already engaged in international research projects concerning the globalisation of economic activity and the implications for patterns of work and governance. In addition, the Institute is planning to develop expertise in a range of emerging market economies over the next few years.

Recent appointments to the Institute include Professor Tony Edwards and Dr Gerhard Schnyder, who joined the University from King's College London. Professor Edwards' research centres on international and comparative employment relations, with a focus on multinational companies, whilst Gerhard’s research adopts an interdisciplinary and comparative approach to investigate the institutional and political determinants of corporate governance.

The Institute will begin delivering an MSc International Management programme from September 2018, which aims to provide an in-depth understanding of the different national and cultural contexts in which firms operate, whilst developing and enhancing students' analytical and research skills. 

The Institute is also accepting applications from potential PhD candidates, and has two PhD studentships available for promising students interested in a broad range of areas relating to international management.
