Business Management and International Relations - Keele University

At Keele University, we’re different. Nestled in 600 acres of countryside in the heart of the UK, we have a big campus but a small and cosmopolitan community. We’re proud to be ‘University of the Year for Student Experience’ in The Times and The Sunday Times Good University Guide 2017, in addition to having been ranked No.1 in the National Student Survey 2014-2016. This is because it’s more than green and lovely, it’s a place of research and academic excellence too. At Keele, studying a combined honours degree will include some modules from both of the single honours degrees. In this case, your programme will be made up of a combination of modules from both Business Management and International Relations. Understanding international politics is a key attribute for any graduate aspiring to work in the business sector. Likewise, understanding business adds another layer to interpreting and explaining how the world works. Business Management and International Relations offers an interesting honours combination that introduces you to the symbiotic relationship between the two disciplines, allowing you to bring together the economic and the political to deepen your understanding of the world around you. By understanding both the business driven and the politically centred structures and systems that shape our world, and by exploring how those not only inform but also direct economic and political action by individuals, states, businesses and organisations, you will explore a range of approaches to the study of both international politics and business. Alongside the ‘nuts and bolts’ of business practices such as human resources, supply chains and accounting, you’ll consider the historical, socio-political, economic, gender and geographical structures and interactions in the international system, and you will consider how these impact upon the practice of business on different levels. You will develop a wide range of skills in research, analysis, critical thinking, oral and written communication, and presentation, that are relevant to a diverse range of future careers. You might work in business, or work as an economic or political analyst, journalist, or in the civil service. For example, Jonty Bloom, BBC Business Correspondent, studied International Relations at Keele. You may seek a career working for an international organisation or aid agency, you may work for an international bank or multinational corporation. Opportunities to study abroad and to learn a language whilst doing your degree add further desirable skills and experiences that will enrich your career.
