Programme Overview

This programme is suited to those looking to study a broad business based degree with an international focus, and for those interested in developing a career within business management in areas such as management consultancy, marketing and human resource management.

This programme has been created in response to the growing internationalisation of business and management practice. It celebrates the diversity of living and working across cultures and focuses on the skills, competences and knowledge necessary for individuals working with today’s global business environment.

You will develop:
• advanced knowledge of international business and management and how to improve the quality of management, leadership and practice in organisations
• applied skills in problem solving, decision-making, critical thinking and analysis

Through the programme you will cover core management areas of strategy, marketing and the managing of organisations and people but also gain a rich introduction to the complexity of globalisation and cultural difference.

You will also have the opportunity to experience the challenges of managerial decision-making as you work in multi-cultural teams on a variety of case studies, business-related projects and a major international business simulation.

In addition, throughout the year speakers from leading businesses will share with you their experiences of international business today so that you can directly connect and relate your learning to their current practices and on-going challenges.
