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 proudly rank 1st for student satisfaction in the National Student Survey for the last three years. This is because it’s more than green and lovely, it’s a place of research and academic excellence too. You would start this course with the Business Foundation Year. This gives excellent preparation for a wide range of subjects relating to business, management, accounting, finance and economics. The programme consists of a set of modules that has been approved by Keele Management School. Upon completion of the Business foundation year, you would begin the International Business Management programme. Here, this opens a gateway into the exciting and fast-paced world of global management. With a flexible course structure and options to study abroad, you will graduate with the skills and knowledge that provide a truly international outlook on business. On this course, you will gain a realistic perspective on what happens in organisations, explore the ‘nuts and bolts’ of essential business skills and knowledge and access the concepts and debates in management and organisations. You will learn about the difficulties and benefits of managing across cultures and languages. Under the supervision of our internationally-recognised tutors, this research-informed course will encourage you to reflect critically on your learning, to challenge received wisdom and to think for yourself about the theories you encounter. You have the option to take a placement year as part of this programme, building your skills and experience further to prepare you for working life after graduation. You will graduate with a wide range of skills to bring to the global employment market with a solid understanding of both business and the global context. This will prepare you for a wide range of careers in the public, private and third sectors. You might choose to work in management consultancy, IT, banking, import/export, sales, marketing or logistics, or to use your transferable skills to an indirectly related career of your choice. Equally you might choose to go on to study for a postgraduate qualification.
