Welcome to the MSc International Business programme. We hope you are looking forward to starting your MSc Programme.
I am Ms Jenoah Joseph, the Programme Director for the MSc International Business programme, and I look forward to meeting you when you arrive at Stirling University to start your MSc programme.
The University of Stirling Management School will be running a number of events in September to ensure that you settle in quickly and that you understand how your new university can help you with your studies. These classes are extremely useful for you and attendance is compulsory.
The Stirling Managment School Induction Lecture will be held at 10.00am on Monday 11th September 2017 in the Macrobert Main House Theatre. The MSc International Business Induction Lecture will be held immediately after at 12.00pm in room 2B86 Cottrell.
It is very important that you attend these induction meetings, however if you are unable to do so please let us know as soon as possible by E-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org.
At the induction lecture you will get to meet your classmates and some of the academic staff who will be guiding your studies for the rest of the year. I will explain the structure of the programme, discuss what we expect from you and take any questions about what you expect from us.
Your academic career at Stirling begins with The Flying Start Leadership Programme. The first two weeks of your timetable are dedicated to this pioneering Programme. Attendance is compulsory for all taught postgraduate students within Stirling Management School, and will be monitored throughout the duration of the Programme. Upon satisfactory completion, you will be awarded the 'Flying Start Leadership Programme Certificate of Participation'.
The Flying Start Leadership Programme is specifically designed to facilitate your transition into your academic studies by providing opportunities for you to meet and work with staff and fellow students, challenge your perceptions of culture, explore your beliefs and values, build your confidence and self-esteem, and encourage you to share your ideas. The Flying Start Leadership Programme equips you with the skills sought by graduate employers and will help you to effectively manage your chosen future career.
