Are you hoping to pursue a career in the fast-paced world of international business? Southampton Solent University’s international business management programme can help you to gain experience of different languages, cultures and business environments, turning you into a well-rounded and globally aware business graduate. Real industry insight is at the heart of Southampton Solent University’s international business management programme. The course team maintain strong relationships with industry professionals, which have previously lead to unique guest lectures, live assessment briefs, and work experience placements for business students. Students are also guided as they write a dissertation, carrying out in-depth research into a relevant business area. Students use the analytics skills learnt throughout the course to inform this research, and are encouraged to focus on an area that they think they might like to work in after graduation. In the second year, students are encouraged to spend all or half the academic year on study placement with one of our partner institutions in Austria, Canada, Finland, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, Sweden or the Netherlands, learning business and language-related subjects. You’ll usually be taught in English, but students with good enough languages skills may find it helpful to study in the local language. Think your business idea could be the next big thing? Southampton Solent’s enterprise centre is dedicated to helping student entrepreneurs achieve success. They have previously provided support in the form of funding, office space, mentoring and guidance.
